One reason can be from distilled from lessons learned in our history of decentralized networks versus other centralized networks. One can be realized through the present day landscape, and one looks into the future of money as we know it.
So let s begin with our ability to learn from history. Twenty years ago, when the Internet was just starting to gain momentum, it was in a similar state of development as Bitcoin is in today. The Web was replacing ancient communication methods like typewriters and snail mail at a slow, but steadily increasing rate. These wouldn t be instantly replaced, but would be one day irrelevant.
As we moved along a few more years, and the 21st century dawned upon us, mainstream news magnets like CNN and the Washington Post joined The Online Revolution. This caused newspapers to shrink in size, number and demand.
As The Internet grew in scope, was it ever compared directly, on a daily basis, to the New York Times or Time Magazine in its relevance? Just as peopleThe Bitcoin (Sign: ฿; ISO 4217 Alphabetic Code: BTC; ISO 4217 Numeric Code: ;) Bitcoin (BTC) is a digital currency first described in a 2008 paper by pseudonymous developer Satoshi Nakamoto, who called it an anonymous, peer-to-peer, electronic payments system. Bitcoin creation and transfer is based on an open source encryption protocol and is not managed by any central authority. The creation of new bitcoins is automated and may be accomplished by servers, called bitcoin miners that run on an internet-based network and confirm bitcoin transactions by adding codes to a decentralized log, which is updated and archived periodically. Each bitcoin is subdivided into 100 million smaller units called satoshis, defined by eight decimal places. Please kindly be advised that Bitcoin is very volatile. It can change a significant amount in a very short period of time. Update: On Feb 25, 2014, largest Bitcoin Exchange MtGox shut down and closed websites after huge theft claim.

So Bitcoin is the perfect bubble. Now the obvious question that this raises is the following: Is Bitcoin so different from the dollar? A dollar bill also has no use other than what people are willing to pay for it.
And if people decide they wish to trust the people who create Bitcoins more than their own government, then perhaps it could be an alternative medium of exchange.
Stephen partially gets at the answer as to why Bitcoin differs from the dollar. It is “a currency not backed by any state – meaning nobody has to take it as payment.” The fact that the U.S. government requires payment in dollars in itself creates a direct demand for dollars that cannot be replicated by Bitcoin. History shows, however, that the state’s involvement in money goesKeep an eye on the Bitcoin price, even while browsing in other tabs.
