land argues that 1 #bitcoin = 1 bitcoin and that forms a condition for exchange rather than a scatology.
ie - unlike, say 1 gbp = n gold that backs the value of gbp. (not true but works for the example)
land thinks that 1 btc is backed by it's own value - hence creating a condition for value oriented exchange.
as the point on nonmonetary quality of #bitcoin demonstrates -
* we have a quality in the network itself.
(eg the fact btc is in fact built upon a network - blockchain.)
and indeed - 1 btc is therefore NOT 1 btc since when in case i want to send You 1btc, one will need to add the network fees - aka gas fees - precisely because the network Is Not the #bitcoin..
