I don't understand

How is it a litmus test for liberty proponents? I consider myself a liberty proponent yet I don't think this is a good idea. What is a bitcoin? It is not a real thing of value is it? In other words if it wasn't used as money in the sense that it is, it is worthless right?
I understand wanting to compete against the Federal Reserve and get away from frn's, but to something else that only has value because people say it does?
I also don't believe it is up to me to do research on it because I'm not buying the pitch for it. Same reason I am not going to read the Quran. Give me reason to want to research it it and I may, until then I have better things to do with my time.
