Questioning if Bitcoin is Worthless

While I now hear of predications that Bitcoin will reach $100,000, I don’t hear many asking what if Bitcoin is worthless?

Overnight;

Ripple has fallen 40%
Ethereum has declined 7%
Litecoin has sunk 11%
EOS has retreated 20%

On 18 of the past 60 days, Bitcoin has risen or fallen 4% or more from its previous day’s close.

Currencies (or the “heir apparent’s”) shouldn’t be moving that much and if they are, it’s not a healthy sign.

After all, Bitcoin is already 11 years old.

(note: isn’t it funny that cryptocurrencies are being quoted and traded against that ‘old enemy’ being the fiat currency)

If crypto currencies aren’t ‘influenced’ by a government then how will we make economic adjustments for inflation?

If we start using Bitcoin to pay for food, fuel and rent, will inflation (or deflation) no longer exist?

If there isn’t any inflation, revenues, expenses, deficits, surpluses and perhaps taxes connected, how do I value a cryptocurrency?

Is it part of a greater fool theory?
Are we relying in the pure speculative value of the currency?

Is it there ‘scarcity’ of units issued which allows cryptocurrencies to rise or retain their value?

For it can’t scarcity of actual currencies, as there are 180 fiat currencies in the world (the top 10 are 90% of FX trade), while there are estimates of between 4,000 and 7,000 cryptocurrencies existing and 1,000 have been reported to have failed.
