    Am not sure I can make it to the meetup, so am hoping someone can answer this question on the blog.
    If the experts on bitcoin say, do not invest into bitcoin anymore than you can afford to lose, and also say that bitcoin can go to zero tomorrow. How does one justify saying that bitcoin is a great store of value?
    While bitcoin does seem to provide a trustless means of transferring value ( like a vehicle) from one place to another, at minimal energy costs. It lacks what all currencies lack. That being a trustless system of value. I believe that is the holy grail of digital currency. Whichever, currency can come up with a trustless system of value, combined with an efficient means of transmitting that value. Will be the winner. Does anybody have any ideas on how this could be done in bitcoin? The question of value seems to be relative to the times one lives in. Tied to energy needed to produce the coin plus 20%, or simply agree to a value.
    This is a tough question.

      Thank you for the reply Chris and Tabris. Chris you might have misread my post. The idea of a trustless system of value. I feel would look something like a value that could not be manipulated. Currently values are either agreed upon or the market decides. I feel this is how it works in micro and macro.

      Even the price of gold until Ford opened the gold market was an agreed upon value. Once the people break an agreement, such as we did by inflating our gold to dollars ratio. France seeing that inflation demanded it's U.S. holdings of gold back. We have a lot of smart people in this group. But we have to ask the right question. Can we come up with a trustless system of value? Tie that to bitcoin and bitcoin will never go away. If btc remains subject to market price. I don't think it will last long as a currency. Because I am asking this question you can bet a lot of others are too. Somebody will figure this it out. BTC needs to be the first. Value has been subjective and relative to the times one lives in, can this be changed? Solve this and you will solve one of humanity's oldest questions.
