Comment: It can't reach more than 21,000,000 bitcoins.

It can't reach more than 21,000,000 bitcoins.

Currently there are 10,952,975 Bitcoins in circulation.

Supply is set by an algorithm.

But can the maximum capacity someday be arbitrarily changed?

If so, how would that be any different than printing currency which devalues the money?

It's an interesting concept but not necessarily immune from mischief.

Gold and silver (and some other precious metals) are still and probably forever the only "real" money known to man.
