It is as valid of currency as anything else when any two parties agree on
tha value of the medium of exchange and the object or service they are
A "dollar" is worth a dollar because both parties agree on the perceived
value of that piece of paper, based on the perceived value of everyone
It is only a farce when a government or other authoritarian entity
enforces price controls that are outside of mutually agreed society
If no-one perceived a bitcoin as valuable, they would be value-less.
