Why Bitcoin

Digital and scriptural, it only exists as validated transaction. Bitcoin is an Asset, not a liability, and a Bearer instrument.
It can be transferred but not duplicated (i.e. it can be spent, but not double-spent), scarce in digital realm, as nothing else before
It mimics gold monetary policy of decreasing incremental extraction, Bitcoin is digital gold with a secure uncensorable embedded settlement network
