The evolution of Bitcoin

Bitcoin has evolved and captured the imagination of supporters and investors like no other asset.

Those who got in early were curious nerds and geeks if I may say so.
However over time as Bitcoin has evolved so has the perception around it.

Was Bitcoin envisioned like this ?

I feel when it comes to the Bitcoin it can easily be said that the beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder similarly the use case, value and how comfortable one is with this asset depends upon the individual and more so on the institutions holding it.

From Experiment to a much sought after asset

The Bitcoin project was more likely an experiment at least this is how a lot of people saw it.
However over time it gained momentum and the concept caught the fancy of many people around the world.
Currently it has become a very hot asset and the leader of a very valuable asset class that is cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin emerges as a store of value

A lot of people see bitcoin as a store of value. With increasing value each bitcoin gets more valuable and so does the fee to transfer it from person A to B.
So low value Bitcoin transactions get nonviable. Perhaps this is not part of the original idea however this is the reality of the POW proof of work coin.
This means rather than a means of transfer of value it is more a store of value asset.

The road ahead for Bitcoin

From buying a Pizza to a Tesla car Bitcoin sure has come a long way. What is the next frontier it conquers remains to be seen.

From here on one is free to think of Bitcoin in whatever way one likes.
You may like it, hate it, love it but the world has begun to see it as an asset which you simply cannot ignore.
Long live Bitcoin and the freedom of money that it represents.


Even though this move by Elon Musk and Tesla will further lead to Bitcoin adoption but I am thinking of something.. Imagine buying a Tesla for maybe 0.4btc and by the end of the year, that BTC worths over $100k, what will you do? I think this is the singular reason some people may still prefer to buy with fiat currency. I remember a story of someone that bought pizza for 10,000BTC or so. Imagine the worth today.

Nice piece here buddy

Thanks dear @samminator I completely agree with your view point. I had arrived at the same conclusion after deliberating upon the options. Fiat is a fast depreciating asset class that keeps losing its buying power and using it buy a Tesla looks the best option.

I appreciate that you have taken out time to read my post and express you views.
For technical reasons I had to move the post here
