0.00000001 bitcoin = 1 Satoshi (currently the smallest denomination). Since the supply is fixed, people lose it everyday and the population keeps growing, bitcoin will become harder and harder to attain.
Let's say a coke costs 1 satoshi in the future. How much would a piece of candy cost?
Does this mean bitcoin could never be a viable form of currency?
You could change the code, and add a decimal place (fork). But then, would a coke eventually cost .1 satoshi?
Would this lead to deflation? Is it possible deflation is a good thing?
