Will bitcoin hold its value as an asset used for preservation of wealth even if another alt-coin becomes the main coin used in real world transactions?
Bitcoin has a low 20 million coin cap, which should mean that it will increase in value over time as scarcity increases. However, Bitcoins transaction speeds are much slower than other coins such as Ethereum or Cardano, which makes it less attractive for real world exchanging of goods and services. Do you think in a scenario where, for example, Ethereum became the choice crypto accepted as payment, Bitcoin could still function as a store of wealth like gold? What do you see as Bitcoins main use in the Future?

“There are people here who truly seem to want to see the world economy collapse, just to prove that their small bitcoin [core] holdings will be worth more than fiat. A perfect world would be where both can exist and have value.”

How will funds be repaid back? If you held bitcoin there at the time, are they going to refund 20%(estimated funds left) of the value of what that would have been at the time, or pay back 20% of the bitcoin you were holding?
Lets say you had 10 BTC on mtgox at the time of the breach. Estimates are reporting that there is something like 20% of funds left. Does that mean someone with 10 btc would receive 2 bitcoins back? Or if those 10 btc were about 1000$ at 100$/btc, does that mean you'll only receive $200 back? IMHO it would be absolutely senseless to let others continue to profit off of the theft. I sincerely hope that the funds are at least paid back how they were stored on there.

Casascius coins are a good hedge. *Great Cold wallet. *Face to face/OTC trades. *Whatever happens to Bitcoin they will always be sought-after for their numismatic value. *If Bitcoin forks they will hold combined value of all chains.

''' Thanks for your advice, but I never had an intention of doing that. Even though, I'm confident the Bcore altcoin will lose nearly all of its original value over time, I'm going to hold it for a few months, just as insurance in case Blockstream's propaganda ends up fooling this incredibly naive market. I held my bch, I can hold bcore too. And while I'm no fan of bch, it still has infinitely more potential than bcore/cripplecoin/gregcoin/whatever name you manage to grab for your scamcoin.

New email from Circle: "Circle may choose to never support certain forks of Bitcoin even if they potentially hold value - and such value will potentially be lost to you." What a bunch of jokers! Hold your own keys gentlemen. This way you have your coins on all forks. /r/Bitcoin
Bitcoin Has Held Up Well During The Current Crisis. Analyst Willy Woo has posted a chart comparing the performance of the S&P 500, gold, and Bitcoin over the past five years.Whereas BTC’s remarkable rise in value during this time is well-known, this comparison reveals that the cryptocurrency’s recent drop in value is vastly less significant during this time frame.

The higher the SF, the higher market value. Although it needs to keep in mind that gold has decades behind it and the precious metal is a recognized safe haven asset with a market cap of about $10 trillion while bitcoin is just getting started, Bitcoin’s S2F will catch up Gold’s this halving. One way to combat this is to buy (low) and hold the asset. Given the cycles, it’s difficult to know when the best time to buy Bitcoin is. The value might surge, but it also might fall, and the money invested might be lost. However, as Tyler Winklevoss – founder of Gemini exchange – states, “it’s still the bottom of the first inning” implying that it’s never too early (or too late ...
