Bitcoin Black Swan - Will Crypto Currencies Get Banned?

Currencies / cryptocurrency Jul 22, 2021 - 02:53 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Currencies

Whilst we can all get carried away projecting into the future based on past trends, comfortable in the reliability of calculations. However, there are always black swans lurking out of sight that could result in that panic event that few see coming. And where Bitcoin and the crypto's are concerned is if the Governments decide to BAN trading and investing in crypto's.

I know the crypto bugs will come out with statements such as it is impossible to ban decentralised crypto currencies.

However, bitcoin / crypto's threaten the fiat currency banking system that effectively the worlds central banks have a monopoly over.


So this could go one of two ways or spectrum of each.

1. The governments embrace Bitcoin and effectively nationalise it by making it an reserve asset.

2. The governments seek to outlaw crypto's and also seek to supplant the block chain technology with their own for instance the US Fed Coin, which is centralised banking. So that bitcoin and crypto's remain largely relegated to the sidelines and never achieve the dominance that crypto bugs assume as inevitable.

Cannot happen? Well India is doing that today, seeking to outlaw bitcoin!

Turkey banned crypto payments.

Thailand has ordered crypto exchanges to delist meme coins such as Doge coin.

At this point in time what is most likely to happen is a mixture of the two.

1. Bitcoin becomes a reserve asset if not for the banks then for corporations.

2. The Fed and other central banks implement their own block chain centralised crypto currencies's backed by the tax payers of the state. These coins will be palatable to the bulk of citizens of each nation.

For instance most moms and pops are going to be scared shitless when told that if you send you coin to the wrong address it is gone forever or you forget your password all your coins are lost for good!

Whereas a centralised banking system based coin offers the safety of a transaction chain so that errors can be undone which given that most people are not engaged in illegal activities will be happy with, so they get access to the benefits of crypto currencies without the risks of price volatility and perhaps as they become more educated in they will begin to use exchanges such as Coinbase that acts as a middle man that stores their crypto in various currencies in a sort of safe place as compared to personal wallets which if lost one loses all their Bitcoins on the block chain.

Whish is why I view the likes of coinbase stock as a good long-term investment as the masses have yet to awake fully to what the block chain has to offer with a lot of innovation to follow in this field over the coming years that Coinbase will profit from.

So understand this the governments will seek to make bitcoin less desirable then their fiat currencies and coming block chain versions of fiat currencies such as the US dollar. The government has a multitude of options to play with such as various taxes when people try to transact with crypto currencies i.e. buying cars or property.

The only way to capitalise on bitcoin / crypto's is to keep transactions outside of the financial system, as soon as it enters the financial system by means of a transaction that involves fiat currency then it becomes trackable and taxable. Which is why I spend the little bitcoin I mine on services paid for in bitcoins.

For me the only way a traditional bitcoin investment could work is if it can be held it within a tax free wrapper such as a SIPP or ISA. Unfortunately the government has been locking down that loophole for instance the UK has banned the holding of bitcoin / crypto funds within ISA's and SIPPs. Hence options such as Coinbase stock is so valuable in terms of gaining tax free exposure to crypto currencies.

As a reminder in the UK one can invest tax free upto £20k per year into a Shares ISA PER adult. And a total of just over £1 million in a SIPP, though effectively one would want to stop investing in a SIPP once the SIPP value gets to about half the limit, so currently about 550k. Which combined should be more than enough for most investors, especially couples. And of course any increase in the value of the home you live in is tax free.
