The biggest knock against

The biggest knock against gold is it represents nothing of value. Why would somebody trade something for nothing?

Bitcoin is digital gold with all the benefits and drawbacks of being electronic only. Gold is a shinny, nearly useless metal good for decorations. Gold is natures perfect fiat currency. Bitcoin is man's attempt at a perfect electronic analogue. Not perfect, but pretty decent. Decent enough that I believe it will be made illegal within a few years and then we needn't worry about having this discussion afterall!
