People are going to use whatever they want to trade, some will use gold for reasons XYZ, some will use Bitcoin because of 123, and so on.
Ignoring gold's historical significance when it comes to society isn't too different from ignoring technological advancement when it comes to digital exchanges, IMO.
There will always exist competition among currencies/money/mediums of exchange/whatever people wish to call it, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
