That may be important to someone planning to use said currency. It would be of no importance to someone who isn't planning on using it, with the possible exception of someone with a loved one thinking of investing.

I am much better informed on what I want than you are. One could even say I am the world's foremost authority.

You incorrectly perceive me as wanting to smear Bitcoin when the reality is I only said it is of trivial importance if someone who doesn't like it and will never use it understands that it is not a specific type of scam.
