Thread title should be changed to "Does SAVING hurt bitcoin"

"Hoarding" is a term used by commies to justify stealing from people. It implies that anyone who saves money is a greedy bastard.

That's right: the word "hoarding" is commonly used to justify non-sense meant to prevent it, like the "demurrage" gloobiboolga.

However, "saving" is just to vague. Hoarding applies nicely to "commodity" money. So , for lack of a better word...

All money is a commodity. Commodities are simply goods demanded by the market. Money are commodities with wide enough demand to be used as a medium of exchange.

Because of the potential upside I am willing to horde my coins at the risk of losing the negligible amount of fiat I have invested in it. Moreover, I will never sell my coins for fiat. I will only ever use my coins to buy items. Due to the limited items available to me, I can only horde.

If you will -never- sell coins for fiat you've got way to much fiat sitting around. Get rid of some of it and if things go worse with your earnings and/or expenses than you currently project move some back into fiat.

All money is a commodity. Commodities are simply goods demanded by the market. Money are commodities with wide enough demand to be used as a medium of exchange.

That's right only because some crooks have commoditized fiat money. Today 4000 billion USD worth of fiat money is traded DAILY on global forex markets (I know, it's hard to believe). Some people get rich just trading on the forex. How pathetic. This kind of volume only shows the extent to which fiat money has been hijacked by banksters and speculators for their own profits to the detriment of creative, productive people.

Bitcoin is a digital commodity that can be used as money. So the term "commodity" money is a short cut. In fact, I am referring to "inelastic" money vs elastic money. However "inelastic" for most people will signal something cumbersome and hardly adaptive. Hence the term "commodity money", again for lack of a better word...

I think you are using some bastardized definition of "commodity". Something that is "fiat" is inherently NOT a commodity. The definition: In economics, a commodity is the generic term for any marketable item produced to satisfy wants or needs

"Fiat" means its not marketable or produced to satisfy wants or needs because its only value is imposed by the government.

Bitcoin DOES fit the definition of "Commodity".

Something that is fiat is given value by a government. Commodities are valuable because people want them. There is no actual demand for little pieces of green paper with magic symbols on them to satisfy needs or wants, they're demand in dependent on their FIAT status.

Commodities are things that need no government intervention to be desired by people. People want sugar, coffee, and bitcoins NOT because the government said they were valuable, but because of their own utility.

The same thing would happen with dollars. Like anything else, their value is dependent on the supply and the demand.

correct ,but since its not possible to print up an extra few million diamonds or gold bars or even  bitcoins they have a value in their scarcity that printed money does not

thats why i think of bitcoin as a commodity as much as a currency ........but theres no reason it cant be both Smiley
