I used to play Everquest MMO. There was an exchange rate for their in game money (tunar/krono depending on version of game) to USD. The exchange rate was no different than USD to Euro, or USD to Bitcoin.
The problem is when the game became far less popular (few people play it now) the rate basically went away. Meaning what used to be roughly $100 USD for 1 million tunar/krono, now 1 million tunar/krono probably wouldn't get you 1 USD.
Soon as bitcoin becomes less popular, like EQ/tunar, the rate will skyrocket making it worthless just like Venezuelan money.
Its not a guarantee that it will become worthless, but the chance is there and it is a decent chance.
With that being said, I wish I had bought bitcoin over a decade ago...
