It’s Time for Private Cryptocurrency Boards / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Steve_H_Hanke

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, currencies around the world took a deep dive. To name but a few casualties: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Iran, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, South Africa, Syria, Turkey, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe. Not only have the currencies in these countries plunged, but the burden of their foreign debts has soared. Exchange-rate instability is a curse.

Indeed, currency instability, banking crises, soaring inflation, sovereign-debt defaults, and economic booms and busts all have a common source: exchange-rate instability. The ills induced by exchange-rate instability bring with them calls for policy changes. Karl Schiller, the German Finance Minister from 1966 until 1972, understood this simple fact. Schiller’s mantra was clear and uncompromising: “Stability is not everything, but without stability, everything is nothing.” Well, Schiller’s mantra is my mantra.

A Digital “Fedcoin” May Be Coming… And It Would Be Terrifying / Currencies / BlockChain

By: MoneyMetals

Cryptocurrencies are based on blockchain technology that allows for de-centralized peer-to-peer transactions to take place outside the government-controlled banking system.

Backers of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin tout their privacy advantages and resistance to inflation due to their strictly limited quantities.

But what if this free-market innovation were co-opted to achieve opposite ends – centralized tracking of every transaction with no possibility of escaping digital devaluations?

That’s what some central bankers are ultimately aiming for by replacing paper cash with their own digitized, monopolized currencies.

All You Need To Know About Cryptocurrency / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Sumeet_Manhas

A little history
The financial world is ever-changing and is always on a constant rotation, doing away with the absolute and welcoming the new methods of trade. Traditionally, if you were to go back in time, you will find out that there was a generation when people exchanged goods for goods. If you were a farmer, you would exchange your produce for something else like tools with a blacksmith. Or hunting tools for meat or leather, so on and so forth. This form of trade, however, had certain drawbacks where people felt their exchanges were not equally quantified. And for that reason, the currency was invented.

Avoid Emotional Investing in Cryptocurrency / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Submissions

Cryptocurrency is famously volatile. Unlike many other markets, Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum are likely to spike and dip in value very frequently. Those swings have led to many investors making considerable amounts of money from wise purchases; however, it has also left other traders feeling a sense of panic and even deep regret. Seasoned experts in crypto trading advise that it is worth waiting for the peaks but for many people who are just getting started with digital currency, avoiding emotional investment can be very difficult.

Facebook Libra Is Nothing More than a Nice Idea / Currencies / BlockChain

By: John_Mauldin

What kind of money will we use in the future?

The answer might seem obvious: dollars, euros, yen, and other government-issued fiat currencies.

Most of us have never known anything else. Yet these currencies aren’t natural phenomena.

People created them. People can also abandon them for something else, just as they abandoned older currencies.

There are good reasons to think we could once again see some fiat currencies disappear. If so, what “something else” will be money in the future?

Why Facebook May Pose a Greater Financial Danger Than Wall Street / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Ellen_Brown

Payments can happen cheaply and easily without banks or credit card companies, as has already been demonstrated—not in the United States but in China. Unlike in the U.S., where numerous firms feast on fees from handling and processing payments, in China most money flows through mobile phones nearly for free. In 2018 these cashless payments totaled a whopping $41.5 trillion; and 90% were through Alipay and WeChat Pay, a pair of digital ecosystems that blend social media, commerce and banking. According to a 2018 article in Bloomberg titled “Why China’s Payment Apps Give U.S. Bankers Nightmares”:

The nightmare for the U.S. financial industry is that a technology company—whether from China or a homegrown juggernaut such as Amazon.com Inc. or Facebook Inc.—replicates the success of Alipay and WeChat in America. The stakes are enormous, potentially carving away billions of dollars in annual revenue from major banks and other firms.

What Does Facebook’s LIBRA New Crytocurrency Really Offer? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Rodney_Johnson

The dark days of 2009 now seem like forever ago.

We didn’t know which banks would survive. The Fed made all banks take bailout money so that citizens wouldn’t know which ones were in trouble and then drain them of deposits. The Fed made bank stocks ineligible for shorting so that investors wouldn’t drive their market caps to zero.

We worried that fiat currencies, those printed by governments and backed by nothing, would go to zero.

Facebook Win-Win with Libra… and The Third Market Wave / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Harry_Dent

If you don’t know by now that Facebook released its libra whitepaper on Tuesday, you’re living under a rock. What you may not know is that bitcoin shot up on the news. That’s because libra gives credibility to the cryptocurrency market, much like AOL did when it first brought email and the internet to the masses.

But that doesn’t mean it’s going to be all sunshine and flowers from here on out. Just like AOL, Facebook faces a storm of lash backs and push backs from across the board. Regulators. Governments. Central banks. Cryptocurrency players. Citizens concerned with Facebook’s growing involvement in every aspect of our lives.

Facebook's Libra Crypto currency vs Bitcoin: Five Key Differences / Companies / BlockChain

By: Dan_Amerman

Facebook has just released the first description of its planned new cryptocurrency, the Libra, that has been the subject of much discussion and speculation. One of the points that Facebook is stressing, however, is that despite using the Libra for transactions on Facebook, the Libra will not belong to Facebook but to the Libra Association.

The Libra Association has many other participants, with some of the bigger names including Mastercard, Visa, PayPal, Ebay and Uber. They have released a white paper which describes their intentions for the rollout of Libra in the first half of 2020.

Many people have been comparing the new cryptocurrency with Bitcoin, and thinking that the Libra will have a lot in common with Bitcoin. As explored in this analysis, the Libra will be quite different from Bitcoin in at least five major ways, and will indeed be close to the direct opposite of Bitcoin in some of the areas that matter most for many cryptocurrency investors.

Deep State & Financial Powers Worry about Alternative Currencies / Stock-Markets / BlockChain

By: Axel_Merk

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Later in today’s program we’ll hear from Axel Merk of Merk Investments. Axel breaks down the trade war with China and gives us some keen insights on the likely strategy being employed by President Donald Trump there, and also tells us why he sees inflationary pressures returning in the economy and the affects it will have on gold prices. Don’t miss another wonderful interview with the highly respected Axel Merk, coming up after this week’s market update.

As markets continue to gyrate on global trade and tariff threats, precious metals are struggling to capture investor interest.

Lately, the big push in alternative assets has been in Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency has doubled in price over the past two months, though it remains well below its old high.

Gold was the sole metal to show strength amidst the recent selloff in stocks. However, its momentum petered out mid week and turned lower on Thursday. As of this Friday recording, gold prices are down 0.8% for the week to trade at $1,277 an ounce.

Such as the money worthiness of gold compared to Bitcoin. Or the ongoing gold repatriation trend as Romania recently joined the fray. What kind of learnings can the precious metals investors draw here?

Bitcoins And Bolivars: Two Hot Potatoes / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Steve_H_Hanke

It was just a little more than a decade ago when “Satoshi Nakamoto” ushered in what has become the era of private cryptocurrencies. Nakamoto’s vision was clearly laid out in a whitepaper: “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Cash System.”

Nakamoto’s bitcoin money machine—or as Larry White refers to it: a private “algorithmic central bank”—was going to wipe out the inflation risk and the accompanying loss of purchasing power that plague fiat monies issued by government-controlled central banks. Alas, bitcoin’s source code that predetermines its supply is set on a fixed-quantity path that is unresponsive to changes in demand. In consequence, bitcoin inhabits a demand-supply space in which supply is almost perfectly inelastic. So, to reach a demand-supply equilibrium, all the adjustment falls on the back of bitcoin’s price (read: purchasing power). As a result, bitcoin’s price is inherently volatile and unstable. Indeed, small changes in demand in the face of an inelastic supply create a price volatility storm. Furthermore, unless more demand can be attracted to bitcoin, there is no reason why its price should trend upwards, as many have been led to believe. If speculation wanes, bitcoin’s price could trend downwards. Indeed, bitcoin’s design guarantees volatility, which inhibits its widespread use. In short, it is very risky to hold bitcoins or accept them for deferred payments.

It is no secret that the crypto market has taken a serious hit this year in terms of the decline of crypto prices across the board - although fundamentally the crypto market is stronger than ever before, measured by the number of crypto projects that have made great progress in terms of product development, etc. - regardless of the percentage of failures (real or perceived).
