Bitcoin is valuable for two reasons: 1) that Satoshi created it from principle, not greed; and 2) that the core developers maintain if from principle, not greed.

Satoshi created bitcoin so there would be DECENTRALIZED money. He then disappeared to ensure that he would not fall into the role of dictator.

Today's core developers follow in his footsteps of ensuring that decentralization is maintained.

Almost all the people behind the other altcoins, behind all of the ICOs and, worst of all, the people trying to corrupt bitcoin's decentralization itself have one objective only – their own wealth and power.

Bitcoin is meant not to have central controllers who fall into the delusion that they can benevolently wield power over the whole world. That is its value proposition. So anyone who tries to become the central controller through unilaterally changing the rules, through pre-mining coins, through releasing untested, unreviewed and unpredictable code, or through any other method, is destroying the principal principle behind bitcoin.

If you're out to get rich quick in terms of fiat value, there are hundreds of coins to choose from. Or, feel free to fork bitcoin and call it something else.

But everyone should know this – there will always be those who hold and use bitcoin precisely because it cannot be changed overnight by the whim of a powerful few. That is the power it gives us to be free from such an abuse of power.

If instead of looking at market caps you look at freedom, bitcoin is the most serious cryptocurrency out there by an immeasurable margin.
