FUCK THIS STUPID MEME CURREN$Y CALLED THE UNITED STATES DOLLAR.

ITS ACTUALLY HAPPENING,
STOCK MARKET CRASHING, INSANE AMOUNTS OF DEBT ARE ABOUT TO IMPLODE

"CRYPTO HAS NO USECASE"
GOD BLESS SATOSHI AND THE CREATION OF THIS NON INFLATING CRYPTO CALLED BTC.

THIS IS THE FINANCIAL REVOLUTION THE WORLD NEEDS

please aren't going to go to crypto
they'll go to gold like they always do

no-one who wants to escape an asset that will drop 40% is going to go to one that collapsed 70%

thats a very negative way of looking at it, considering its going up 1000's of % over the last decade, theres a reason why its gone up

crypto is the fiat destroyer. Crypto is money, it represents exchange of value, all on a decentralized blockchain..

Crypto Re-invented the wheel in a superior way, and humans will continue to adopt the most modern technology.

Because anyone with a brain can see that the underlying problems that caused the 2008 mini-crash were never addressed. They just pushed interest rates down and called everything fine.

People like myself would say "hey, glad you're stocks are doing well, but this is clearly the result of the Fed printing money and a decade of 0% fed funds reate" and they just laughed at us and at crypto.

When you tell them that crypto is actually the safe investment all you get is that fluoride stare.

>>
>>11362089
Secret Anon here who predicted this (dead srs it's actually me, I spend way too much time on this shithole).

I'm doubling up my physical silver holdings this week. If you can't get silver get gold or BTC.

Just get the fuck out of stocks and shitcoins you faggots while you still have some money left. The market is going to implode

And yes I still do think there's a high chance jpm attempts to back the dollar with silver. Again China and Russia have been hoarding gold so it would be a good way to hurt them

Also.silver has real industrial use cases
>>
>>11362148
I'm unironically believing you and started to stockpile a shitload of silvers coins (1oz Münze Österreich Austria coins) since your prediction. I'm a poorfag so i can't buy tons of it but i've a good feeling it's the right thing to do.

>>
>>11362148
the industrial usefulness of silver is infinitesimal compared with the holdings necessary to back a currency. Do you realize the kind of warehouses of this stuff (which is at practically a record low price) it would take to back up a currency. No, not practical whatsoever and absolutely ridiculous.

If you want a metal with high industrial demand invest in something like indium or tin.

>crypto is money
Let's examine that claim.

There are 4 functions of money that it has to fulfill in order to be technically money. These are;
>Reliable store of value
>Medium of exchange
>Measure of value (things can be priced in it)
>Standard of deferred payment (people will lend it/accept being owed it)

Crypto fulfils one of those max: Medium of exchange. It does not reliably store value as the price fluctuates too much, and it is completely susceptible to government takeover (banning exchanges from your ISP etc). They don't have to make it impossible to use, just difficult enough that 80% of people won't bother to try.

It can't be used as a measure of value as the core 'value' of crypto is wasted energy, plus pure speculation. It has no inherent value, like other fiat, but unlike other fiat it is not backed by any strong government or economy to support the money illusion.

Crypto cannot be lent or borrowed, as sending it to someone is anonymous nobody would ever be stupid enough to send crypto and expect to get it back.

Most crypto is not money. The idea that there will ever be a currency without a state or inherent physical value to back it up is pure fantasy.

Silver could be a good backing for the USD. If it requires warehouses full, then people can't make off with a lot of value unless they have a fucking army.
>>
>>11365519
Production of silver can be too easily manipulated, meaning silver is only slightly worse than copper for savings.
Silver is good for small and medium holdings, but it is no store of value, which is what money should be. Isaac Newton chose gold for the standard for this reason.

When the price of silver rises enough, because there is more of it in the ground, mining production will increase. Copper is more pronounced in this effect than silver.

The same thing happens with gold, however because there is far less gold in the ground, the price of gold can rise higher and it will still not be profitable for mining production to increase.

We want people trading currency to be productive, not mining it out of the ground in an attempt to make money, devaluing what savers have set aside.

crypto has no value because its value is omly measured in fiat. This is why coins like iota are better. the coin itself needs to represent a unit of value. bitcoins dont represnt anything. its just a number in a computer. the number must be a representation of some form of labor even if that labor is only computer labor.

Bitcoin has a value independent of fiat. The value expressed in fiat is a symbol that signals that value. The value must exist first and foremost before a fiat value can be assigned to it -- not the other way around.

Bitcoin may one day become money. It is currently a speculative asset. Money takes time to become a store of value, the final goal.

>So, wasted energy. You speak like a leftist, and no random numbers are not valuable just because they're unique.
I'm as far right as they come. Mining is how the entire thing functions. It takes energy spent across time to discover truth, which is what Proof of Work mining literally is.

No. Using Bitcoin with its perfect and public accounting history is the last thing criminals should use. It produces evidence that cannot be destroyed.
Bitcoin is limited, proving its security and value, and is constantly being improved. More users will come to it if it is able to easily achieve what institutions fail to offer.

How are you even convincing yourself at this point? You're literally invested- emotionally- in a meme.

>It takes energy spent across time to discover truth, which is what Proof of Work mining literally is.

So the 'truth' of hidden random numbers is the value? Dude that is a joke. Try seriously selling that to any businessman. Why on Earth do you still think this will take off?

A crypto will probably be used in the future but as fiat it will HAVE to be backed by a state before anyone can place any long term faith in it

>>11367552
The truth is the next block, which validates all new committed actions which previously happened, anchoring it forever into the ledger in a trust-less way. The difference between a valid hash and an invalid hash is the difference between Truth and Falsehood.

It does not have to be backed by the state. States will scramble to adopt it to remain relevant.

You need to do research on Bitcoin or remain silent.

>artificially limit how many copies of meme can be made
>lol it has value now

Sorry but I just don't see it. I've yet to see one Bitcoin believer explain why it's inherently more valuable than state-backed cryptofiat, and safe from shutdown. Any non-state backed fiat will never be adopted by the mainstream investor as a long term store of value because there is nobody to protect it.

>States will scramble to adopt it to remain relevant.

This is pure fantasy. A state has to control its own money supply. So if they can't control BTC and it gets out of their control, they'll shut it down. If they can control and tax it, it loses the only apparent value (secrecy) it had the first place. And there are other coins they would replace it with.

You need to understand you're not selling anything of value. Random numbers are not valuable just because they're speshul and sekrit. The very nature of BTC makes it a threat to the power structures of the world, so it's almost guaranteed to be opposed, controlled or destroyed. Even if it isn't, why should anyone bother taking the risk? There are things much more valuable that I could buy. Like silver, gold, land.

Learn the difference between value and speculation.

What is commodity money?
Speculation is simply high risk investing.

You confuse Man Made laws for Natural Law and think that Man Made law can override Natural Law.
It cannot, and that is why states will bend to Bitcoin in due time.

I don't care to change your mind anon, I am pointing out the areas that you yourself say you cannot see or grasp. You cannot change my mind with your ignorance.

Sell all your Bitcoin and get out now, clearly it is a scam and going straight to zero.

>j-just shut up!

You're in denial. You can't grasp the primitive concepts of inherent value, store of value, money illusion or states' monetary policy, and you're pretending your special understanding of secret internet points trumps these in any way.

>Speculation is simply high risk investing.
You would really, really benefit from learning economics. Speculation and investing are completely different.

Economics is one area of natural law. So is statecraft. Human organisations with guns simply do not allow money supply to be out of their control.
>>
>>11367691
>Speculation is simply high risk investing
What.

And he's right about the states, having your own currency is one of the more important part of being a sovereign state. If you think any government will hand that off to internet funny money you are deluded. Fuck what about your own government? Would you vote for a party that seeks to replace your currency with fucking Bitcoin?

Value is -- at the core of its being -- creative, unpredictable information that is typically scarce and useful.

Investing and speculation are the same thing, the only difference being risk, but it is the same exact motions.
What else could the difference between Investing and Speculation be?

Speculating is buying something thinking the price will go up and with the aim to sell it at a higher price. Shorting is also speculating.

Investing is buying something because you want it, because it's valuable to you somehow, e.g. shares in a good company because you'll get paid dividends, but equally investing could be in books to get better at things, or in a degree so you get paid more in the future.

Risk is completely different. Risk is simply how likely something is to get worse/hurt you financially. You can have low-risk speculation. I speculate in physical silver, this is low risk because it is unlikely silver will lose much more value and it will never become worthless.

Investing is buying something because you want it. Speculating is buying something because you want to sell it. And risk is how much whatever you buy would hurt you in a worst case scenario. Stability is how likely that worst case scenario is to happen.

So if I buy Bitcoin I'm now investing because I care about it?
And when I buy stocks and shares I don't care about, it is speculation?
Speculation is just simply higher risk investment.

No. The amount of risk involved determines whether or not it is speculation.

This is categorically wrong. You're just pulling new definitions of established ideas out of your ass and expecting people trained in economics to accept them.

>The main difference between speculating and investing is the amount of of risk undertaken in the trade.

All investment and speculation is made with an expectation of greater value in the future.
Both can go to zero, including seemingly less risky investments.

The lower risk "investment" doesn't become a speculation because it failed; dogs don't become cats because they died.

>quoting investopedia

The MSM would have you to go all in on the stock market today, anon. Risk is simply the potential downside. People both speculate and invest in stocks so I can see why it's confusing.

Say it with me;
>Speculation is buying something because you want to sell it
>Investment is buying something because you want it

This is the definition used by PHDs in Econ and Finance. It's a useful distinction.
