Quote from: scarface on November 07, 2021, 08:16 AMToday, I'm going to talk about Bitcoin. More precisely, I translated an article published in courrier international, and originally published in the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung or FAZ. I guess that shadow.97 will be glad to read this even if it's a rather negative view of bitcoin.This article is titled: The bitcoin, a dangerous illusion.Today's most popular cryptocurrency will never have the qualities of an â€œold-fashionedâ€ currency, warn two ECB directors in a column for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Its increasingly wide distribution could even cause â€œconsiderable social damageâ€.You don't have to be a financial genius "to understand that the price of bitcoin will sooner or later be zero." Speculators who bet on its scarcity are wrong. â€œIt is only useful subjective demand that makes a good scarce and therefore valuable". â€œThe bitcoin fever has all the hallmarks of a bubble based on the biggest fool theory,â€ which says â€œvalue increases as long as the 'biggest fool' assumes he can later sell for a higher price â€.Bitcoin is not as "popular" as its community thinks it is. It is â€œshaped by financial interests and powerful investorsâ€. The â€œmassesâ€, ie 75% of the addresses on the blockchain, â€œonly hold 0.2% of the marketâ€. It's a much more elitist than egalitarian system.Finally, crypto-assets are dangerous for the environment - mining â€œwastes energy on a large scaleâ€ - and for society - money laundering, financing of terrorismâ€¦ All this militates for â€œa reaction from the public authoritiesâ€, conclude the two economists, for whom a bitcoin that lasts is something â€œas impossible as dividing by zeroâ€.Link for the article: https://www.courrierinternational.com/article/finance-le-bitcoin-une-illusion-dangereuse
