    01.06.2018: 4 myths about bitcoin, in which I believe even professors of Economics

    Well-known British economist and honorary Professor at the University of Warwick Robert Skidelsky last week published an article urging people not to try to reinvent the wheel coin with bitcoin. However, cryptoanalysis not enthusiastic about reading material and say that Skidelsky stuck in the 20th century and believes in myths about bitcoin.

    TOP 4 myths about bitcoin:

  • Bitcoin is created out of nothing. Accordingly, he cannot claim the role of money. First, the value of bitcoin consists of several factors: energy costs, equipment, software, resources to run and support the network. Secondly, if bitcoin is not legal tender, as a medium of exchange and the digital asset is functioning perfectly, that is, de facto is money.
  • The lack of resources. It is known that the amount of mined bitcoins is limited. Today in circulation for over 17 million coins. Skidelsky believes that in the end bitcoin will face the same problem as gold is the lack of sufficient resources. First, Skidelsky thinks ahead, after all, experts estimate that the last bitcoin will be mined in the year 2140. Second, unlike gold, bitcoin is just the name of a digital unit, in fact each coin is divisible into satoshis. So 21 billion bitcoins is more than 2 quadrillion Satoshi, who will always be in Vogue, and the network will be upgraded to provide even smaller amounts.
  • Deflation. Due to the hard limit of bitcoin is actually deflationary currency, and Skidelsky forgot to mention it. However, previously well-known economist Robert Murphy explained that bitcoin is not so clear. In his opinion, people will continue to invest in the scarce but liquid and quickly traded goods. Even with the fall of all the main indicators: mining, number of services and companies that use cryptocurrencies continue to grow. If one currency is subject to deflation (deficit) and other inflation (as Fiat money is printed every day) – what will you choose?
  • Inflation. The reverse side of the coin, Skidelsky points out that the cryptocurrency is not protected from inflation. However, the scientist does not specify which inflation is a price or monetary suggestions. It is the habit of Central banks to print more money may lead to inflation. The issuance of bitcoin is not only monitored, but also completely transparent. Even gold may not be so all the time – you never know how much it will produce. Millions of people using bitcoin, you know that supply is limited, and choose scriptactive voluntarily as a store of savings or means of payment.
  • Cryptocurrency is a revolutionary idea, which is good because people can choose what to invest in. History shows that all the time, there was a power (government, Church, banks) that maintain a monopoly on currency. Now people have a choice between banks and decentralized monetary networkthat is not controlled by anyone.

  • Historical analysis. The company’s specialists Fundstrat Global Advisors analyzed the history of the development of bitcoin. Interesting, but for all the first borne digital currency, the profit answer only 10 days a year. Tom Lee says that the main thing is not to miss these 10 days since the rally from $8,000 to $25,000 will be very fast.
