Bitcoin's more of a money than a money substitute, isn't it? Leucosticte (talk) 13:38, 5 January 2014 (EST)
- Depends on how one defines money, a "commonly used medium of exchange" of course makes it dependent on what can be considered "common". And indeed, Bitcoin doesn't seem to me like a money substitute.
- Which leads to the bigger question - how come we don't have a Money substitute page? :) Pestergaines (talk) 17:51, 5 January 2014 (EST)
- We should definitely have a near money or quasi money article. A copy-and-paste from http://mises.org/rothbard/mes/chap11d.asp might suffice to get it started. I always found quasi moneys interesting, maybe just because I like quasi stuff in general. E.g., one of my favorite topics in parliamentary procedure was the quasi committee of the whole.
