  • Willy Woo (@woonomic)

    Bitcoin has seen only 3 bear markets in its history. We are in the third one now. One signal we can use to determine the end of the bear is for the price to cross above its 200 day moving average. ( this is a big discussion in itself)

    People like to point out that Bitcoin’s irreversible transactions enable fraud, but never bother to mention that merchants lose $190 BILLION to chargebacks every year. Risk doesn’t ever disappear, we just push the liability on to someone else.

Deflationary Nature of Bitcoin

  • CryptoZerp (@CryptoZerp)

    Eventually, you will need to accept the fact that #bitcoin was hard coded to pump. 1) Every 4 years the supply cuts in half. 2) Every single day more and more people want to buy it.

  • Bitcoin’s Deflationary Weirdness

    The purpose of our brief discussion was just to provide some general background information for Arnie’s listeners about Bitcoin, including what bitcoins are and why anyone would buy them or accept them in exchange for goods and services. We touched on several topics related to the Bitcoin phenomenon, but there is one very peculiar and puzzling feature of Bitcoin that we didn’t get to discuss and that seems especially important to me: the Bitcoin system has what appears to be a built-in deflationary architecture.

A Short Introduction to the World of Cryptocurrencies - Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis Review, First Quarter 2018

In this article, we give a short introduction to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. The focus of the introduction is on Bitcoin, but many elements are shared by other blockchain implementations and alternative cryptoassets. The article covers the original idea and motivation, the mode of operation and possible applications of cryptocurrencies, and blockchain technology. We conclude that Bitcoin has a wide range of interesting applications and that cryptoassets are well suited to become an important asset class. (JEL G23, E50, E59)
