Does bitcoin need to be a currency?
« on: August 18, 2019, 04:20:49 PM »
Hi, I created a thread two days ago. Here is the link.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5176246
I discussed about the effect of BAKKT on future of bitcoin and one of my concerns was how bitcoin is treated by BAKKT as an investment and store of value.
In some of replies I got, people believe that there is no problem if bitcoin remains an investment forever and won't be a currency.
What do you think? What will happen if bitcoin won't be a currency and it remains an investments like it is today?
I personally believe that people now thinks that bitcoin is a good investment because they believe that bitcoin will be a currency. In other words, bitcoin is the future currency. In my opinion, if bitcoin is not supposed to be a currency, it cannot survive forever as an investment. Why should people invest in something that has not any benefit?
What do you think?
