It lost 2/3rd of its' value within a year like what happened in 2014?  Imagine if everybody lost 2/3rd of their purchasing power?  What would the economic results of this be?

There ain't no Revolution like a NEMolution.  The only solution is Bitcoin's dissolution! NEM!

If BTC was the main economic currency, it would not be volatile. A whale with $10 million might be able to move the price by a penny.

The Fed would do anything so this shouldn't happen.
And if it already happened, they would try to stabilize it.

This.

This is like saying what if USD lost 2/3rd of it's value within a year, something this big doesn't move that fast.

Exactly. I like Andreas's analogy when he called Bitcoin a zodiac that bobs up and down with the waves. A zodiac sitting next to the Titanic that is fiat, which has just struck an iceberg.

The world economy would collapse as the transaction speed and volume potential (ie number per block) are not yet big enough to support the global economy.
