The last trait that should be found in any currency is probably the only one that fits Bitcoin the best. It is quite clear, and I have argued this numerous times, that Bitcoin has emerged as a digital peer-to-peer cash, and thus is challenging current monetary systems. Yet, over the years it has outgrown its initial purpose, and now it is more similar to a store of value, or an alternative investment. The latter two are essentially driven by speculation and hype around the cryptocurrency space in general, and Bitcoin in particular."
