I believe that bitcoin is now becoming more and more "usable" in more and more places, and has started to spread to the point where it is no longer funny to look at it as an asset, just like paper money until now.
Recently, McDonald's in Switzerland has started accepting bitcoin payments.
When the value of bitcoin as an 'asset' increases in the future, it is highly likely that "how much money you have" will be considered very important for those who have bitcoin in the future, more so than for previous currencies.
The reason is that bitcoin has an issuance cap of
21 million BTC; that is the entire amount of Bitcoin.
With a normal currency, there is no limit to the amount of currency that can be issued. There is no limit.
That's why the phrase "at that time's price" comes up, even though it's the same currency.
It is saying that the value of the currency you have is diluted.
But bitcoin is different: 1 BTC is still worth 1 BTC.
The value of 1 BTC will remain at 1 BTC because this issuance limit will not be increased in the future.
If that limited amount of bitcoin is recognized as an asset in the future, it may become important to know what percentage of the 21 million bitcoins you own now.
And when the world is fighting over bitcoin, it is not surprising that some countries will give preferential treatment based on the amount of bitcoin you can afford.
That is why I will continue to collect bitcoins today.
