People in the know realize there are some very big problems happening with fiat currencies. 0% interest rates and endless "quantitative easing" (aka money printing) are the signs of a dying currency. Fiat currencies together hold $50 TRILLION+ in value. Gold holds about $8 TRILLION in value. Bitcoin currently holds only $10 billion. Within 5 years Bitcoin will reach a $1 Trillion market cap, meaning each coin will be worth over $50,000+. Physical cash will not exist in a decade and Bitcoin will be the only way to circumvent the centralized, closed source "GovCoin" that's in the making, in order to finally control absolutely everything. Gold will be useless as you will not be able to hide it when trying to cross borders, let alone send it all over the world instantly for a cheap fee. There will not be an alternative to Bitcoin if you want financial freedom.
Attempts to stop the Bitcoin network will keep being futile, since to cause relevant damage it would literally need that the governments get rid of the internet as a whole, which would wreck the economy.

The software will keep evolving and adapting, getting stronger, more private. Not even an hypothetical quantum computer attack will stop it. Non-reuse of addresses makes Bitcoin as it is now, at only version 0.13, immune to those.
Besides whales diversifying their wealth into Bitcoin, common people will start working under the radar for direct Bitcoin payments as a substitute for the lack of physical cash. The circle is then closed and government issued money is no longer needed. Everything starts and ends within Bitcoin. A perfect circle of financial freedom.
The nerds will inherit the Earth. Logic and Math dominate.
Even at $1 trillion market cap, that's STILL only 1 or 2% of currency markets.

uhm... that's not true at all.
Non-reuse of addresses makes Bitcoin as it is now, at only version 0.13, immune to those.
that's also bullshit. address reuse has very little relevance to the breaking of private keys. you are confusing things it seems. but even if you don't reuse an address the theoretical attacks on pub key to private key still work the exact same.

There's no difference between "fiat" and gold. Gold only has value because people believe it does. There is no practical use for gold that gives it any value. It doesn't rust and is a decent electrical conductor, but so are a hundred other metals.

sweet cherry picking on the image. here's the lines missing from the diagram:

acceptance as payment: moderate - high - abysmally low
exposure to accidental destruction: low - moderate - high
recovery after accident: high - medium - none
exposure to forgetfulness: low - medium - catastrophic
tracability after fraud: moderate - moderate - low
withstanding catastrohpies: high - moderate - low
inherent theft protection: high - moderate (as strong as your physical defense) - low (as strong as your cyber defense and life expecancy of your storage device)
exposure to built-in weaknesses: low - moderate - high
exposure to future technological advances: low - moderate - high
transparency of transactions (to a layman understandable and verifyable transfer of wealth): moderate - high - low

Within 5 years Bitcoin will reach a $1 Trillion market cap, meaning each coin will be worth over $50,000+.
laughable
Physical cash will not exist in a decade
they're trying, but 10 years is waaay too short for this drastic of a shift. maybe in 30 years. 10 years? no fucking way. there'd be riots in the street. right now politicians have to promise their voters this will not happen. the currenty generation of politicians can't back down on those promises, probably the next neither.

I have fiat laying around that I haven't spent or invested cuz lazy and frugal. Considering buying even one BTC just as a gamble. How would I purchase one and how are they stored?

Ever talked to a normie about bitcoin? They think you're fucking crazy if you tell them you've put even $1000 into it.

2. Both traders are required to pay security deposits. These are refunded to them after a trade completes.
yeah whatever fiat you deposit can be stolen just like an account at a centralized exchange. same shit nigger. only there are more "trusted arbitrators" here not just one in theory but how can you even make sure they are not the same russian gypsy?

the point was exchange or any service where you can spend it or whatever. bitcoin is useless for them mostly as of now. because it loses all decentralized properties ones it interacts with the real world and exposes the users to scam as it's highly unregulated and hard to pursue any legal measures across a bitcoin transaction.

which is everyone's problem with bitcoins.

meanwhile in real world if a seller scams me i can chargeback on my card or sue the fucker file a police report and whatnot. we have a way of dealing with being scammed out of real money. with bitcoins it's not there yet and doesn't look like it will be anytime soon or ever.

The rise of electronic currency will lead to the phasing out of physical cash in Australia within a decade, according to Professor Rabee Tourky, Director of the Australian National University (ANU) Research School of Economics.

Physical cash will not exist in a decade

So yeah, no.

Phasing out the currency at this level is only going to work if it's a slow transition. They could easily choose to stop printing physical currency by 2025 and begin only issuing new currency in the form of electronic currency, BUT, anyone taking this claim seriously fails to comprehend how slowly people adopt to new technology. You are not going to be able to make two bogans in the outback give up all their cash and start using a machine if they are content to continue using paper currency. Not to mention this is only being said about some fuck off country no one really gives a shit about.

Yeah, no. Keep coping tho. Not to mention during the transition to the inevitable cash society, be it in 10 or 20 years, Bitcoin will start skyrocketing already since more people will start to see the trend. Not everyone can see things coming years before it happens, indeed few do, which is why few (like me) keep getting rich from events like this while the rest keep coping on their normalcy biased, linear-thinking bubble.

There's even TV shows talking about this already for god's sake:

i do probably know a hundred times more about it than you do. also know cryptography. if reusing a private key weakens the security of the key then the crypto-protocol is at great fault and should be redesigned. the issue with bitcoin have been fixed. we would be in knee deep shit in general and public key cryptography would be utterly worthless if private key reuse was a concern in the slightest.
