"it's like a COBOL programmer from the 1970's worrying about a Y2K bug.
So Bitcoin is like a short sighted jerk who doesn't understand software engineering?
2,099,999,997,690,000 is the max units. that's 300,000(approx) coins poer person assuming 7 billion people. So fer every person born, the value if bitcoin goes up. This means it's harder for new arrivals to earn the same value
Every time you move the decimal, the people receiving bit coins for services/goods immediately losses value for their services and goods.
If I charge half a bitcoin for a service, and that causes a split, then how may BitCoin you need to buy something doubles, effectively halving the value of the service I preformed.
Max number of BitCoins smallest unit: 2,099,999,997,690,000
Max umber of US Currency smallest unit: M0: 120,000,000,000,000 M1: 240,000,000,000,000 M2: 1,200,000,000,000,000
That does not take in all currency in the world converted to pennies. WHich you shoud far a reasonable comparison, becasue BTC is global.
Don't know what M0, M1, M2 (There isn't an M3 anymore) is? Then stop talking about currencies until you study up. I mean, you can't even have a reasonable discussion about currency without that knowledge. No don't go to wikipedia, and learn the definition of just those thing,. There are a whole set of rules, coefficient, behaviors, etc you need to know about.
Not that you can't know, just that you should at least study what they are and apply critical thought to them for a few years.
