I suspect it's the opposite: it's not missing at all so much as it's
been considered and rejected.

BitCoin is more of a currency speculation scheme than it is a serious
currency.  Further, governments haven't quite figured out how to
regulate it yet -- what it should be taxed as, how it can be taxed, and
so on.

That large companies like Microsoft are beginning to accept BitCoin is
promising, but Microsoft has a large team of lawyers to navigate these
sorts of things.  GnuPG doesn't.
