The Social Kerfuffle: What is an Employee?
Who owns the behavior of an employee on the social networks? In a world where we have all gone BYOD, and I would posit - gone BYOS (Bring your own "Social Network") - who owns what? And who is responsible when an error is made by the employee? What is an er...

To answer your question directly: Right now, Bitcoin's movement seems to be determined by influx of dollars by rich people who are trying to "invest" substantial sums in it.

That is always a worry. This money is leaving the system, not being loaned out and can cause deflationary cycle if a lot of rich people do it.

Unfortunately, Bitcoin is also hard to confiscate (unlike gold, which was confiscated for similar reasons in 1933 - to inject liquidity into the system).

So I can totally see this as a valid strategy for rich people who want to take their money out of the system.

Personally, though, I'd advocate Bitcoin as a currency equivalent, but not as an investment.

Wait, you agree with me that there won't be more than two winners, right?

What is the remaining disagreement?

Re: your point about platinum - BTW, Silver has way more quantity than Gold. And yet, Gold is the dominant currency. Why do you think that is? I believe that's because gold is more inert, hence a slightly better store of value. Which is why the entire market gravitates to it (which goes to my point that minor differences in trustworthiness matter a lot in currency markets).
