bit coin is worthless
Debate Rounds (3)
Bitcoin is a digital currency. Digital currency is immaterial. Air is material. Therefore Bit coin is not air.
Of course it can be used to buy services. Any currency can buy a service. You just need someone to accept bitcoins in exchange for an activity which could be any service such as smuggling drugs.
Variable value is not the same as no value. The dollar changes value multiple times every year.
And no, it can't buy things, you'll never find a Starbucks where they accept thin air, if Tessa would have known that his wireless transmission systems would have been used to rip millions off, he would not have invented it.
Also, anyone can just make more.
Air is not sold here, but if pollution became rampant, clean air could become a commodity. Additionally, not all value can be purchased. You cannot purchase love for dollars, but it is generally valued by people.
I cannot make more bitcoins and unless you are actually an owner of the bitcoin distributing organization, neither can you.

Reasons for voting decision: Con points out that value is derived from belief that something has value, and enough people believe it that it's used as currency in some locations. Pro fails to respond to this point and only makes bare assertions
