Comment: Sleepdog...

(See in situ)


Sleepdog...

was referring to "intrinsic usefulness" of substances and objects(and I'm 99% sure you are fully aware of this).

The uber-common definition of "intrinsic value" on the street and even in most academic circles and specialites refers to the physical (as in physics) and chemical property of substances and finished goods and services.

Sleepdog was NOT referring to "specific prices assigned by individual humans". They were referring to physical (chemistry and physics) properties that make commodities useful. Again, I think in your heart you know this but the temptation to engage in a semantic parlor trick that suits your purposes is too strong for you to resist.

Gold, cows, food, medicine have valuable intrinsic physical and chemical usefulness outside use for exchange where bitcoin has none at all...
