Is bitcoin a good investment? This is a quick review of what is considered real money, real assets verses fiat currency, fungible money and what intrinsic value means.
I would consider bitcoin potentially a good investment but only one with which you have money to gamble. Its not a real asset, it has no intrinsic value, it can’t be made into products, consumed, eaten. So should there be any REAL trouble in the economy, you would stand to lose a lot of value if you hold lots of bitcoins.
Property / real estate, precious metals and railroads, and livestock are examples of items with intrinsic value, tangible, tradable items that are always worth something no matter what the economy or world is doing.
