I understand how bitcoins

I understand how bitcoins could be beneficial. What I don't understand is this blind trust so many people seem to be willing to put into a system. Or do people really believe it can't be compromised?

Gold and silver, for the foreseeable future, cannot be compromised. And that's after thousands of years of attempting to.
