It's pretty fascinating philosophically.  "What's a byte?" and so on.  Digitization is so imaginary, but at the same time obviously "real."  I never really know what to make of it.
The only difference between digital ledgers and an ink and paper ones is the medium of storing the information.
But no one treats a ledger like currency, is the difference.
Similarly do (and should) people distinguish Bitcoin (the software, network, ledger, etc.) from bitcoin (the currency).
