You are right.

Bitcoin is nothing. NOTHING that someone has placed value on. And no matter how they push the supposed advantages of it it is still nothing. And without man made apparatus it is not even conceivable so it is the first completely man made currency and has fulfilled mans dream of creating wealth out of nothing, so to speak. The dollar bill in my pocket is at least worth the paper and ink that it is made of but bitcoin is nothing. I can use my dollar anywhere but bitcoin is worthless just about anywhere you go.

It occurs to me that the main reason that bitcoin supposedly cannot be manipulated is simply because bitcoin is nothing and nothing can not be manipulated.
