Is Bitcoin the payment system of the future? In these notes, we argue that Bitcoin is neither currency nor gold, but that it is a tradable asset and an alternative form of investments. Bitcoin also exhibits some features as an investment asset that are similar to collectibles. The true value of Bitcoin lies not in its speculative nature but in the embedded technology which has the long term potential of revolutionizing traditional  nance. Blockchain technology can provide solutions to Big Data challenges and provide an o -ramp during political uncertainty. Bitcoin's long-term survivability and viability as an asset will largely depend on its diversification role, institutional adoption, tax treatment and regulations.
