People new to Bitcoin commonly think that Bitcoin is for criminals. They think it is for hackers, kidnappers, and drug-dealers, not for normal people like you and me. This idea arose because Bitcoin was indeed used as currency on an early online drug marketplace, called the Silk Road. And it is true that many computer hackers now demand Bitcoin as a ransom payment.

You know there’s something systematically wrong. The world you knew 20 years ago is not what you have today.

Bitcoin is the answer to this runaway global policy and broke incentive structure.

We are living in hyperbitcoinization, a process which is basically repricing the world in Bitcoin. This is because Bitcoin is actually much better than gold as a store of value.

The next Bitcoin halving is almost here. We explore whether the halving is priced in, if other coins are a model for Bitcoin, and fears of a mining death spiral.
Competing on the sound money front requires an above-all commitment to decentralization and properties that are truly hard to change and attack. Unfortunately coins cannot compete on this front by virtue of the fact that they are built typically by centralized teams with a profit motive, and not a happy accident of a slowly growing ecosystem that was built by cypherpunks.
