Re: BTC in the PP

I dont really understand what this means. As in peer to peer BTC transactions could be outlawed. All CEX pairings to be made with a CBDC, all legal DEX's will have to route their trades through a CBDC with CBDCs being the most liquid pairings for liquidity pools. All compliant wallets would route t...

I think it could be as easily as saying that all approved BTC transactions have to be paired with a CBDC or through a CBDC so then it effectively removes some of those features of BTC that are problematic while keeping its monetary policy.

A official, regulated, audited state approved/sourced alternative will sooner or later be provided and regulations applied to prohibit the use of unregulated, unaudited alternatives on the basis of being used for illicit activities.

Re: BTC in the PP

it could be that bitcoin and CBDCs cannot co-exist and that it is inevitable for bitcoin to cross the thresholds where it will be shut down. It would be interesting to explore what you think about this. I think the US government can do things that slow Bitcoin adoption or affect the price. But I do...

Re: BTC in the PP

Bitcoin will crash and burn. It's just a matter of when. It's nothing like gold. Gold/Bitcoin have some differences and similarities: Durability : bitcoin and gold both strong here. Portability : bitcoin is digital thus much more portable than gold. Divisibility : A single bitcoin can be subdivided...

Re: BTC in the PP

I think the US government recognizes the benefits of embracing bitcoin outweigh the risks (if any) to them.

A good testing ground however for pre CBDC, let others take the risk of ironing out security flaws before adoption/rollout of their own version.

Okay can we get back to personal crypto portfolios? I like Bitcoins in my portfolio. Ill throw a couple alternate ideas out as well. 1. Buy BTC, collar it.

Re: BTC in the PP

LTTs and Gold seem wildly speculative to some folks. But they have track records. I largely agree with this, ofc. But keep in mind their track records could actually prove to be very dangerous. If long bonds begin to correlate with stocks (which I believe is happening more and more), and gold stops...

I do not believe that any crypto-currency will replace gold as a store of value.

The problem with the concept is that the PP is not designed around wildly speculative assets, but that's what BTC is for now. The PP assets are designed to be volatile because we are choosing the asset that gives you the best capital efficiency for the type of risk exposure. Each PP asset carries a...

Re: Gold outflows, bitcoin inflows

This is one of the coolest aspects of Bitcoin IMHO and it is called the difficulty adjustment. If more people are trying to mine bitcoin, the algorithm makes it harder, which helps keep Bitcoin's emission of new coins on schedule. So if a ton of new miners join to mine, algorithm makes mining "harde...
