no it wasn't intentional. I did skim over it and focus on that one sentence.

It is not and never will be a hard currency.
It has some functions in modern commerce, I see it as a competing currency which is a good thing. The fact that it is raising eyebrows with the central bankers is also a very good thing and I applaud the creator and the users for this. More power to you, but do keep it in context.
