Bitcoin with capital ‘B’ and bitcoin with lowercase ‘b’

What’s the deal spelling Bitcoin with a capital “B” versus bitcoin with a lowercase “b”. First of all, it’s not that important but on occasion the distinction helps clarity. When we use bitcoin with a lowercase “b” we are referring to the currency, that thing that is money. When we use Bitcoin with an uppercase “B” we’re talking about the Bitcoin network and overall ecosystem. Not a big deal but it is useful to at least be aware of the distinction.
