Everyone already knows Bitcoin is valuable.
The reason the IRS can state "virtual currency" in their forms and people automatically understand they are referring specifically to crypto and not other virtual currencies like in game currency or reddit coins or membership points etc, is because people inherently (maybe even subconsciously) understand bitcoin is different and holds true global free market value unlike other centralized company issued virtual currencies.
They understand this subconsciously but haven't yet come around to cognitively and consciously accepting it.
Centralized company issued currency is valueless and only decentralized free market freely traded currency holds value. Wait until they realize the Fed is a centralized company!
