Bitcoins have all the same beneficial qualities of PMs

Bitcoins have all the same beneficial qualities of PMs. They are finite, they cannot be created or falsified, they cannot be destroyed, and they are divisible.

Unlike gold, not even a fusion reactor can create Bitcoins. BTC doesn't require a safe/guns/ammo to protect it. BTC is weightless and transactions travel at the speed of light, via the internet, from your "pocket" to your recipient's "pocket". No middlemen, port authorities, what-have-you.

Now, I'm not saying "don't own gold". Most of us pro-BTC folks think owning PMs is wise. What I am saying is that Bitcoin has some amazing properties that put PMs to shame. Most notably, that it can't be intercepted, controled or created by a third party. It is 100% compatible with the goals of the Liberty Movement: Sound Money, Free Markets. Nothing exists that is freer than Bitcoin.
