Here’s why you would want to get your hands on some bitcoin and start using it now, while its fate is still uncertain:
Use bitcoin if you don’t like being told what you can and can’t do with your money.
Use bitcoin if you don’t like being told who and where you can send your money to.
Use bitcoin if you like the idea of being able to use services online without having to reveal your personal information or email.
Use bitcoin if you don’t like buying stuff and having to trust the merchant to keep your credit card information safe.
Use bitcoin if you think it is silly that a merchant can charge your credit card the wrong amount, or accidentally double charge, or worse.
Use bitcoin if you like the idea that nobody, for any reason, justified or not, can freeze or confiscate your assets.
Use bitcoin if you don’t like paying large fees when transferring money.
Use bitcoin if you are saving money for your retirement. Unlike government money it isn’t guaranteed to lose 95% or more of its value in your lifetime.
Use bitcoin if you want to help make sure it survives the battle with Visa, Western Union, JP Morgan, HSBC and friends.
Use bitcoin if you want to always have access to your money no matter where you are on earth.
Use bitcoin if you feel government has a bit too much power or abuses it. Take some of that power back into your own hands. If government currency has less of a monopoly, government can’t just print more money whenever it wants to, to pay for things citizens don’t agree with.
Use bitcoin if you want choice. Don’t let it die from neglect.
Use bitcoin if your life savings are all pegged to your government’s currency. Don’t keep your eggs all in one basket. Or buy some gold.
