Just a question, if 21 million bitcoins are the total potential

how can it gain widespread acceptance? What about the other 279,000,000 people in the US alone? and that is assuming that the other 21,000,000 have only one coin each. And what if one of the 21 million buys something with their bitcoin? Seems like this would end up being an exclusive currency, for the limited few. Is it possible to own "part" of a bitcoin?

Obviously, I don't know how this works.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
