7 mentiras de los bitcoins

Translated by Forbes Argentina

Bitcoin: ¿No es lo que parece?

Mentira 1: Bitcoin es como algo más

Esta falacia es tan frecuente, sinceramente, porque Bitcoin realmente no se parece mucho a nada. Hay algunas similitudes entre el bitcoin y –dicen– el dólar estadounidense, el oro y hasta incluso los tulipanes. Pero, las diferencias superan a las similitudes.

Dibujar una comparación falsa entre cosas diferentes es un ejemplo de falsa analogía, comparación falsa o falacia de falsa equivalencia. Incluso, hay una página de Wikipedia que lo explica.

Este es un ejemplo común: cuando digo que los delincuentes usan bitcoins para transacciones ilícitas, una de las respuestas más frecuentes es “Bueno, los delincuentes también usan la moneda estadounidense para transacciones ilícitas, así que no se debe destacar a la cibermoneda en particular”. Esta línea de razonamiento es falaz, porque Bitcoin y dólar son muy diferentes para llegar a esa conclusión.
