Keep your head clear.  It’s hard to stay focused with all the noise surrounding cryptocurrencies lately.  It seems like everyone wants to be involved.  It’s seems like everyone who wants to be involved wants to tell you how to use your money.  They are trying to define something for you which they can’t.  People who argue over how money should be used “as a store of value” or “as a means of exchange” need to just realized it’s used for either depending on what the individual uses it for, and at the moment that individual uses it.   People use money for both!  People use Gold for and other precious metals and stones for both and nobody tried to define how you would use it ahead of time.  Everyone trying to label money and tell others how to used it have something to gain.  The situation is the same with digital money and now cryptocurrency.
