Just a thought

New bitcons are created out of thin air and exchanged for dollars. But the dollars spent on bitcons do not disappear, they just change hands. RESULT: bitcons add to inflation (total money supply) and make those who produced bitcons rich. The system holds as long as there is trust in bitcons. If trust disappears, bitcon value goes to zero.
