no, far from it

(bitcoin is by design optimized for fix transaction cost not
proportional to the amount sent so it's always worth sending
large amounts at a time, it is also pretty expensive which is
not yet visible because so far the mining operations are
sustained by the continous printing of new coins instead of the
transaction costs so it is not a long term solution..
it has other serious issues when it comes to funding projects
like musl but this is not the right place to discuss bitcoin)
