Is It Possible For Bitcoin To Give Way To Deflation?

If currencies existed in only fixed quantities, then as the economy grew and or physical money was lost, there might eventually be too few units in circulation to allow normal commerce, but even if only one Bitcoin remains, it would be sufficient to run a substantial economy on, based on the ability to use tiny fractions of it.

Most modern currencies have a minimum unit, such as the penny in the United States, or the yen in Japan. Bitcoins are infinitely divisible. The usability of Bitcoin is safe from the effects of deflation.
