So you say it's divisible - like gold. But I still wonder how

...reliable is that maximum capacity (supposedly) of 21 million total Bitcoins.

Even if it's divisible, that would be fine - it would not make new ones - only fractional Bitcoins.

What's important is that maximum number created could not change which would devalue the number already available for use.

That is the number I'm curious about.

Now if you're saying whan they divide they are each still worth 1 Bitcoin, then that's a different thing (like an amoeba).

But still not a problem if the max number cannot change.
