By capitalising Bitcoin, the answer is that no it is not a currency it is a payment rail/technology. If he wrote that bitcoin is not a currency or that BTC is not a currency maybe the answer is different.
Its an asset and not a currency. Its value is benchmarked against the USD or EUR and thats the only relationship to the word currency.

@andrefassler Not today. it is a store of value mainly. Ok as currency for big ticket items. It is a better currency than Gold IMHO and will be a lot better after Lightning Network enables quick low value transactions
I think it’s still uncertain to say whether it is a currency. It depends on the adoption. Right now, it’s picking up again. Let’s see where it goes?
