Correct as a social protocol for trust, Bitcoin and other currencies act as an informational lens for super-ordinate co-ordination problems. ie. how does one optimize trade/transactions over space and time, namely using symbolic representation. The more stable the protocol (non-volatile) in price swings etc. default the more effective the value creation possible.
