Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Stripe will soon stop accepting Bitcoin for transactions. Discuss here if you think the company is right that Bitcoin is more of an asset than a currency, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

because of the 30%+ drop, haha

Sound naive to me, Bitcoin can't be stopped & most likely will return to to 12k+ in the next 1,5 month.

I do agree with the asset part of the story, as long as the prices fluctuate this much you cant really use it as a currency.

Especcially if the prices keep going up.
I mean like if you had a gold bar, but the price of gold would continue to go up would you sell it, or would you keep it?

Thats why real currencies gradually become worth less, in order for the ppl to spend it.
but then again i ain't telling you guys anything new.

Bitcoin = 21st. Century version of a South Sea or Duch tulip bulb bubble... At some point it will simply crash...; just a matter of predicting when so; as to cash in before it does... Of course when enuff holders cash it in at a given time, that likely will trigger the crash...?

I am definitely not surprised by their decision, Bitcoin is exciting, but I am not sure whether it has a stable future or not.
