...but completely different properties ...

Properties that as yet we have not encountered, have no way to experience, or measure.....possible, sure. But then if they did, this would introduce a different classification system. So rather than refer to these things as Elements we might call them Smelements...........

Hmmm, I think you're on to something here.

There might be another lighter element between lithium and hydrogen that we don't know about.

Number of Protons/Electrons: 3
Number of Neutrons: 4

Number of Protons/Electrons: 1
Number of Neutrons: 0

You are correct, there are quite a few possibilities for elements in between (whatever that really means), Many of those we call those Ions, but some are such unstable configurations (if they can exist at all) that as far as we are concerned, they don't really exist

Some of those possible combinations we refer to as Helium (or its Ions)

Shouldn't 'uncertainty' and 'risk' be detrimental to the value of anything that is subject to it
Not necessarily. Many financial instruments are inversely price sensitive to risk. Although why a bit coind exchange rate for hard currency would be so is a mystery.

It appears to me that BitCoin is one of the most irrational products of technology of recent times
Appearances can be deceptive. Watch and learn.

The sun is the BEST source of power there is. It powers all life on this planet.

The problem is not the power source, it's how to store it. Plants do that pretty well, our problem is we're inneficient at extracting that power to produce electricty.

Luckily we're highly efficient at extracting it to produce body heat.

I wish I had the chutzpah to sell such junk, I'd be a freaking billionaire by now too. Instead, my software is bulletproof, but it sells for pennies per seat. I guess I missed the big picture. Oh well, at least I have a clean conscience.
