Why was bitcoin promoted as medium of exchange at the beginning?

After reading [the bullish case for bitcoin ](https://medium.com/@vijayboyapati/the-bullish-case-for-bitcoin-6ecc8bdecc1) and Nick Szabo’s [origins of money](https://nakamotoinstitute.org/shelling-out/), I understand that in order for something to becomes a good money it has to become a store of value, a medium of exchange and then unit of account in that order.

It makes a lot more sense now that I think about it as a good store of value needs to have large amount of money (market cap / price) and less volatility.

Why was bitcoin, in the early day, promoted as an online shopping token then?
