Who cares about what a

Who cares about what a dictionary says. Truth is, after 4 years in existence I can buy just about anything I want with Bitcoins. Gold and Silver not so much and they have been around for 1000's of years.

Not only that but Bitcions have increased in value about 200,000% in 4 years.

Bitcoins are very useful. Gold and Silver, might be useful to industry, but not for the common man wanting to do commerce in this global economy.

Sure there will be other coins out there and the market will decide which ones to use. If anything having the option to trade in other crytpos from Bitcoin will help stablize the price so it can work as a currency better.

Maybe Bitcoin doesn't fit your definition of "money" so what? Does not mean it isn't useful.
