Bitcoin doesn't hold and use your money between transference of ownership but banks and Fed do.
Bitcoin doesn't charge you to save or use your property but banks and Fed do.
Bitcoin doesn't require you share your identity but banks do.

How has bitcoin failed again?
Selling Bitcoin for a weak, inflationary currency is not safety. But we have to flush away the amateurs and people who were in Bitcoin for the wrong reasons... the people who refuse to DYOR or the traders holding BTC, only because they had false hope their shitcoin bags would make a miracle comeback.
I know people don't like to compare the Bitcoin and stock markets, as indicators of anything. But the economy is showing signs of slowing down and stocks have been rocked lately.
Sans shitcoins, I think Bitcoin selling is not an indictment of it, but like stocks, nervy investors looking to preserve capital in the face of a weakening economy.
