Satoshi’s Focus on a “Transactional Currency”

Written in response to the following question:

In the bitcoin white paper, it sounds like Satoshi is talking about a transactional currency. And yet, it seems like the better application is bitcoin as a store of value. So why didn’t he argue it more that way. It sounds more like he wanted to see a currency that could be used more day to day. So basically, if what I am saying is true, should be a concern that he didn’t really understand what he built?
