But I've found that most of the people who promote bitcoin are generally owners of bitcoin.
Yes, but what kind of person is going to promote bitcoin if they haven't even tried using it. I used it and I liked it, hence I will promote it by
discussing the advantages of it. I post about bitcoin on ATS because we have many people here who can appreciate the way bitcoin works and how it
opposes the mainstream banking system, and I like discussing these things. I don't post about it anywhere else except here and the official bitcoin
I have to chuckle when owners of the bitcoin start to lecture me on the "pointlessness" of owning gold and silver...
I've found that most bitcoin users are also gold/silver bugs. They are typically the type of free market people who believe money must be a limited
resource like gold. The way bitcoin is designed makes it very similar to gold in almost every way, that's why they are attracted to it. The way it is
limited, the way it is mined, the deflationary properties, the inability to create endless amounts out of thin air at no cost... gold and bitcoin
share all these properties.
