    So you admit thereís no reason to expect widespread adoption.

    Except for the criminal element? No.

    By widespread, I mean thereís no need for a typical man/woman to make use of Bitcoin. Most arenít making criminal financial transactions, and very very few people make Ďincredibly large financial transactioní, let alone while needing to keep them outside the regulated marketplace.

    Like, Iím solidly upper middle class, and the only large financial transactions I ever make are for cars, houses, and retirement funds. All those are with a regulated entity on the other end, so even if they accepted Bitcoin, why do I care that Ďnobody can stop ití.

    You don't understand it because dollars have always just worked for you.

    Yeah thatís not something the world was missing, and bitcoin isnít even the best version of that functionality.

    Sending incredibly large amounts of money with no fraud protections, immutably, without a trusted third party is a nightmare. Unless youíre a criminal.
    focus.

    Why is BTC valued in Dollars? Asking for a criminal.

    Like I said, you all don't understand it because you've never needed to.

    You can value BTC in many ways. You can measure against gold if you want. We commonly value BTC in dollars because...wait for it...we're Americans. USD is also the world's reserve currency, so there's that too.

    Check out BTC in Argentinian Pesos.

    Thatís not a logical connection, byates, and an odd deflection from bitcoin as religion.

    Why do you feel the need to deflect that?

    Itís only at a record level if you want to report it in a meaningless way to scare people. Reported in a useful way, it looks like this:

    No, manufacturing. Just trying to steer people clear of the ponzi industry.
