Before the dot com bubble burst there were some beanie babies that were limited run or made with imperfections. There was literally a TV channel devoted to trading beanie babies. People were paying hundred of thousands of dollars for "rare" beanie babies. Before a bubble bursts risky and nonsensical get-rich-quick investments are common and no one seems to notice how ridiculous they are until its over.

Both bitcoin and beanie babies are given an insane valuation solely because of speculation when they are a product that can be made by anyone with a bit of technical expertise. Outside of niche cases they have little use besides speculation. 99% of BTC holders have no designs on actually using them other than selling them for a profit. When the real market goes south everyone will dump bitcoin and it will be a meme for years to come.

People who spout this nonsense really have no idea about the technology. Unlike beanie babies or tulips crypto has an actual use and many of us are in it for the long haul. Did beanie babies have a fucking research paper on it detailing it's use? I think not. Dipshit fudders.

You are asking the wrong questions. Ask yourself what can BTC do and what are the advantages, not "what can you buy with it.

Widespread implementation can come later, but the pros are all there for you. Again you don't really understand what you're talking about.

I understand this part.
My point is, say you buy a videogame today for 50 bucks, equivalent to 2 sats. Next minute, BTC moons and is worth the double. The same game will now go on sale for 1 sat (or people will just fork over the 50 bucks instead).
So, if in a given minute, the value doubles, the demand for BTC itself will have to halve at the same rate. So what is the point of holding this in a long-term perspective?

What I mean is that I don't understand the point of holding bitcoin for anything other than speculation. If, in the future, all normalfags jump ship and adhere to bitcoin for transactions, they'll just buy as much as they need for equivalent in USD. No one will care how many sats it gets them, so long as they can buy the videogame for 50 USD-worth.

I buy shit with bitcoin all the time. I buy shit on newegg with it. I buy usenet accounts with it. Hell I bought fucking flowers for my mom on her birthday with bitcoin. Why? Because I like pointing my phone at a qr code and hitting send and having a payment completed without the jews tracking every fucking thing I buy so they can improve their advertising AI.
