    Imagine being able to go anywhere in the world without needing to convert the $ to another currency.

    This is the way it should be.

    We live in an absurd time of currency barter on the global stage.

    Stop the madness. Buy Bitcoin.

    If/when the scaling debate is settled, I believe it will solidify Bitcoin as the store of value of the future. I get laughed at a lot for saying this in front of people in real life, but I truly think we will see a great rotation from global fiat currencies into more fair money systems like Bitcoin and the altcoins created in its wake. If Bitcoin can solve its scaling issues (which I think it will), it is not outside the realm of possibility that one day 1 bitcoin will be worth as much or more than $1million USD in todayโ€™s terms.

Bitcoin Cash has a bigger blocksize, an incompetent development team, and is trying to co-opt the Bitcoin brand.

I don't have a view on what the ultimate value of a Bitcoin will be nor do I care. I am interested in Bitcoin plain and simply because I believe it can be and possibly will be the financial and transactional protocol for the global Internet.

If something is to displace Bitcoin now, it will have to have sizable improvements and it will have to happen quickly. Otherwise, this network effect will carry Bitcoin to dominance.

Bitcoin takes powers from the central actors and returns it to merchants and consumers, savers and borrowers. Bitcoin brings back some pseudonymity in the transactions, and can be irrevocably traded like cash. And finally, it points a way towards a single currency โ€“ it is a bug, not a feature, that we have multiple global currencies with exchangers and transaction fees in between.
