When I was very young I found a strange coin in my father’s chest-of-drawers and asked what it was. He told me it was a “half penny”, and would sing the Christmas is Coming song that referenced the ha’penny. It was a fun tune and could sing along and could understand the poverty aspect of the song, but couldn’t grasp what the coin was/would be good for. Like counting things in “bits” (eight bits = one dollar)
Now he’s long gone, but memories remain, and over time learned what happened to the venerable coin with inflation, and see history repeating itself as the penny will soon disappear from circulation.
I think dad would have appreciated bitcoin’s properties if he were still around.
