The question put differently, are you investing in Bitcoin for performance only? or because it's Bitcoin?
Because there are financial products that deliver much more performance than BTC.

Hi @Marcraffard

Great question you have asked.

Bitcoin has no intrinsic value and is effectively a ponzi scheme, hence articles like this which exist solely to entice new money into Bitcoin and keep the merry-go-round going.

Unfortunately it is becoming too big to fail and will probably require a bailout of sorts. There are too many VCs, jobs and “investors” dependent on the bubble perpetually inflating.

Hi @andysinclair

Thanks for sharing your feedback and view. Interesting analysis of cryptos you shared as well, thanks.

Similar to Fiat currency, Bitcoin (or most of the cryptocurrencies) is also not backed by any gold or silver hence does not have any intrinsic value.

Interesting, when you say "becoming too big to fail", do you compare Bitcoin to the Tulip bubble? Is Bitcoin the Tulipmania that refuses to die or fail?

Yes, that is exactly what I think it is. I think we will look back on this crypto mania period and wonder what on earth we were thinking about (and I haven't even touched on the enormous amount of energy and resources dedicated to crypto mining!).

BITCOIN A PONZI?

"A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investing scam promising high rates of return with little risk to investors. A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investing scam which generates returns for earlier investors with money taken from later investors. This is similar to a pyramid scheme in that both are based on using new investors' funds to pay the earlier backers

Both Ponzi schemes and pyramid schemes eventually bottom out when the flood of new investors dries up and there isn't enough money to go around. At that point, the schemes unravel."

Ref.  INVESTOPEDIA

Money is something backed by confidence. It is a medium of exchange and can be represented by gold, silver, paper money value, digital tokens, coupons, etc... whatever a group or society agrees to use.

It goes wrong when it is corruptly used or abused in its defined use and people lose confidence in it as it loses value or the trust in it is broken.

Dollar is paper money (fiat) that was backed by gold once and its value remained relatively stable. Once the gold link was banned the Dollar being the world reserve currency was the link for all countries to value. But, central banker (FED) policies since 1913 have, over time, devalued the purchasing value of the Dollar by about 80%. Dollar rate against other currencies is a battle of each country seeking to make its currency more valuable. The true way to make a currency valuable  involves the proper handling of the economic factors creating goods & services that are needed and exchangeable with others and nations. However some of the factors get manipulated or get based on improper evaluations and a false economy can be operated partially.

Paper money has been abused in its use by many nations and resulted in disasters only because of artificial manipulation of that currency instead of using the actual production and selling of goods and services that naturally and stably maintains an economy.

Now, is Bitcoin a medium of exchange?

YES. More and more companies are using it. Bankers are planning various types of digital products and eventually to control all cryptos as they hate it if it is NOT under their control and manipulation (for good or bad as in a vested interest form).

The share price of cryptos can go up or down in accordance to its supply and demand of the shares. Just like any other shares, commodities, etc...

The U.S. Justice Department will sell off $56 million worth of cryptocurrency it seized as part of a massive Ponzi scheme case against a man who promoted the offshore crypto lending program BitConnect, authorities said Tuesday.

The Justice Department said the liquidation of the cryptocurrency follows “the largest single recovery of a cryptocurrency fraud by the United States to date.”

Proceeds will be used to reimburse victims of the BitConnect fraud. Full article: CNBC

  PONZI SCHEME 2

The  articleD by Kevin Stankiewicz makes an interesting point and the definition he points out is ALSO true, in my view.

   "Ponzi scheme is a type of fraud whereby crooks steal money from investors and mask the theft by funneling returns to clients from funds contributed by newer investors."

   But taking it as it is then we can apply it to various other areas, seemingly.

FOR EXAMPLE:

   Q.E. encourages and creates greater and greater debt build up, and entraps all financially into  over debtedness, as encouraged by  the Monetary Theory used by the FED. In the end it collapses and various clever but complex solutions are advised by the same people who used flawed theories as being gospel truth.  A financial nuclear bomb gone off, markets crashes big time, a recession or depression ensues. All suffer. The flaws in the system are ignored or not recognised, during the frency of making a billions in profit. So, we have a roller coaster system.

   Majority of companies and millions of people who were not involved in it suffer AND THE COUNTRY'S TAXPAYER HAS TO PAY FOR it ALL THOSE SUBSIDES THAT THE GOVERNMENTS ARE ADVISED TO DO (PLAUSIBLE REASONS USED ). It becomes covert stealing by funneling indebted businesses and banks who's debts get shifted to the central banking system or by tax write offs so effectively charging the government, by "professional" advise, to take on toxic debts to "save" the economy and the system from "collapsing", and the politicians from losing popularity or the Office.

   Now, as reported in the media, a Debt Jubilee is being considered as a "solution". It has been used is past history too. But it did NOT WORK IN THE PAST AS WE HAVE ENDED UP WITH A SIMILAR PROBLEM NOW.

    Those who have studied the financial history and John Law and the "Mississippi Scheme and bubble, and the "South Sea Bubble" that was in the similar time using his idea gives rise to out current system.

   The Banking System was supposed to be a fractional system where a portion of income from depositors is supposed to be used for lending. Today this has been made extremely complex by lending x amount and this end product is again it is used as a derivative. Risk taking has gone in a frency. It just needs a major collapse,  to create a falling domino effect.

   So, the question comes back to:   WHAT IS A PONZI SCHEME?

   AND WHO RECOGNISES THE PRIMARY CAUSE, THE WHY OF THE WHOLE SITUATION IN THE PRACTICE OF FINANCE AND ECONOMICS. FOR GOOD RULES AND GUIDELINES OF PAST GENERATIONS HAVE BEEN OVER LOOKED.

   CAN ANYONE FIGURE THOSE OUT?

   “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think”

   “Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people.”
― Socrates

    • Gold on the rise, as Brent crude and natural gas show signs of impending weakness Ongoing trends look likely to continue, with gold grinding higher as Brent crude and natural gas show signs of potential impending weakness. Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 09 February 2023  Gold grinds higher after collapse into trendline support Gold ended last week with a bang as price collapsed into a fresh four-week low. However, despite growing calls for a reversal across a number of asset classes, this week has seen equity markets and the dollar turn back in the direction of their prevailing trend. Given the close correlation between the dollar and gold, this signals the potential for another move higher for precious metals if money does not flow into the dollar. For gold, the current grind higher looks likely to continue, with a break back below the recent low of $1861 required to create a fresh bearish outlook. Source: ProRealTime Brent crude rebound takes price back up towards descending trendline Brent crude has spent much of the week regaining lost ground following a bearish turn that saw $10 sliced off the price in the space of a fortnight. The wider trend does remain bearish, with the descending trendline and Fibonacci resistance levels bringing the potential for another bearish turn before long. With price currently at the 61.8% retracement ($85.20), there is a good chance we see the bears come into play before long. Watch for a move through 80 on the stochastic to signal a bearish turn from a momentum perspective. To the upside, we would need to see a push up through the $89.01 resistance level to bring confidence of a more protracted bullish rebound. Source: ProRealTime Natural gas turns lower from Fibonacci resistance Natural gas has turned lower once again after a rebound in the early part of the week. This is a market that has been a consistent performer for the bears, with the relatively balmy European winter ensuring that storage levels remain well topped up throughout the drawdown period of the year. While we did see a push into the 76.4% Fibonacci level on Tuesday, price has been reversing lower in line with the wider bearish trend. With a very consistent bearish trend still in play, we would need to see a push up through the $2.789 swing-high to bring about a more positive outlook. Until then, further downside looks likely.

    • ASX 200 afternoon report: 9th of February 2023 Find out all the latest information on the ASX 200 market. Updated as of 9th February, 3.00 pm AEDT.   Source: Bloomberg   Indices ASX Coal Dividend S&P/ASX 200 Interest rate  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Thursday 09 February 2023  The ASX 200 trades 43 points (-0.57%) lower at 7487 at 3.00 pm Sydney time. The ASX 200 has slumped today, taking its lead from a fall on Wall Street, as Fed Speakers hit the wires to beat the hawkish drums and remind markets that higher rates will be required for longer to bring down inflation. IT sector The tech sector experienced losses today, led by Google. Google fell 7.44% after its new AI intelligence chatbot Bard underwhelmed Sezzle fell 8.53% ZIP fell 5.91% Megaport fell 5.65% as it elected not to pay a dividend Novonix fell 4.72% to $1.72. AGL fell 11% after reporting a loss of $ 1.1 billion for the first half of the year. It also slashed guidance and its interim dividend to 8c per share. Elsewhere, Real Estate heavyweight Mirvac slumped 5% to $2.28 as wet weather, interest rate hikes, and labour shortages limited its first-half earnings. Financial sector The pressure of this week’s RBA rate hike and intensification in the fight for new deposits has hada negative effect on all banks apart from ANZ. ANZ has added 0.23% to $23.85 after its upbeat trading update NAB fell 0.8% to $31.80 Westpac fell 0.36% to $23.82 CBA fell 0.4% to $109.89. Mining sector The 40% fall in the price of coal out of Newcastle since the start of the year continues to weigh on the coal miners. Whitehaven coal fell 5.62% to $8.06 New Hope fell 4.9% to $5.81 Yancoal fell 4.62% to $5.87 Coronado Coal fell 4.65% Fortescue Metals added 0.89% to $22.68 BHP added 0.02% to $48.13 Rio Tinto fell 0.4% to $123.65. Technical analysis We view the ASX 200 as being stretched to the upside and overbought after five straight weeks of gains. For the Elliott Wave followers, there is a five-wave advance from the October 6411 low to this week’s 7567.7 high. All of which warn that a pullback is looming. A break of support at 7460/50 (coming from recent lows) would indicate that a medium-term high is in place and that a corrective pullback is underway. We continue to favour trimming longs ahead of the bull market 7632 high and looking to either buy a sustained break of the 7632 high or a pullback into the 7200/7000 support area.
