As we all know the total amount of bitcoins which can be available at any time are capped at 21 Million. This was done by design by its creator/creators (he/she/they say that it is intended to make the coin "scarce").
But if I think about it, this fact is completely destroying the intent of creating a currency for people to buy things with. Nobody who has even the smallest understanding of economy would spend bitcoin to buy things with because it is guaranteed that it will be, sooner or later more valuable over time.
For me, it seems that the only reason this technology was created was just to trap people into buying it, believing that it will become more valuable, but in the end, the only people who do really make real (fiat) money from this are the "early adopters" and the creator himself who got the bitcoins when they were very cheap. Also, take into account that the creator is still anonymous to this day et voila - you got a lot of evidence to why this whole system is just a kind of ponzi scheme designed to distribute wealth from late adopters to early adopters.
Please prove me wrong because until now I was very fascinated by bitcoin and altoins.
