Way more reliable than Bitcoin.

I can't say how much fun it has been watching that mess of a coin hyperinflate into oblivion.
I dunno man, they make some convincing arguments for themselves.

Yes, the FEC has ruled Bitcoins can now be given to politicians as an in-kind donation, similar to stocks. It was pretty unexpected of them to do so, most agencies simply dance around the subject for a long time to avoid making any real decision.

You could get physical Bitcoins the moment the Bitcoin protocol was released. That said, a physical bitcoin is actually just a serial number (a private key). If anyone offers you a coin with no apparent sign of a serial number on it, you're getting swindled. Also, that coin looks like shit compared to say, a Casascius coin.

You seem to have difficulty grasping the concept of "physical".

The problem is more likely on your end.

Then please proceed to state why you believe that anything about Bitcoin is abstract.

Is the number one a physical thing?

The number one is not a unique identifier attached to a network. All bitcoins exist, physically, on harddrives/thumb drives/sheets of paper/coins. There is no such thing as a bitcoin that is not physical.

The number one exists in all networks.

It's how your computer processes information and communicates. It's how the 'bitcoin' serial number is calculated.

You are trying to make a number (and an algorithm) into a 'physical thing'.

There are many types of computers that do not use binary.

I don't think you know what the term physical means.

That's okay. Wallow in your ignorance if you must, just do it somewhere else.
