It's an emerging technology that is going through parabolic growth, you can't look at short times frames, zoom out past a few months. Long term it has more than outpaced inflation when traditional hedges have not. It is also much more than a hedge. Gold and silver don't always move in lockstep on small time frames. You have been calling it a scam since 3k, so probably should just counter trade your opinions at this point.If btc is an inflation hedge, it should be going up right now, with the worst cpi data since 2008, but it isn't. The people holding it as a hedge against the dollar are going to expect btc to go up as the dollar weakens, and they are going to dump it if it doesn't.
