"The report found that Bitcoin currently has an SF of 25, which means that it will take 25 years of production to reach Bitcoin's current circulating supply of 17.5 million coins. But since the bitcoin supply is set at 21 million , there are only 3.5 million BTC left to be recovered. In the year 2022, SF of Bitcoin is expected to reach 50-a-value much closer to gold. "
This puts Bitcoin in the category of money products, along with silver and gold .
