Correct

but the network does have value, which is growing all the time. That's where the value comes from. It's true that doesn't give the same assurance for a store of value gold does, but it doesn't need to.

As I often say, use gold for what it's best at (storing value) and Bitcoin for what it's best at (transacting value). That means you can have both - probably a significant part of your wealth in gold, and some small fraction, based on your intended use of the currency, in Bitcoin. Simple.
