This is exactly the kind of criticism/note I was hoping to get on this (which amounts to little more than a prologue, really), so: thanks.

There’s a reason why I only cited Bitcoin in relation to its enthusiasm rather than its economic validity, and what you outline is exactly why.

And while I more or less agree with the final point, I guess I’m still somewhat hung up on the realities of poverty, the capacity of someone’s purchasing power in relation to inflation, and the structural holes in an economy where people simply fall through. Blame it on my humanities background, maybe, but it’s something on my mind.
