    Because you incessantly claim how crypto is only used for fraudulent activities while ignoring an 800 pound gorilla.

    Cognitive dissonance much?

    I get a kick out of how this bug gets touted as a feature.

    Go ahead and trot out the use case where this “feature” would have prevented a loss by a normal consumer. Truly. It’s a thought experiment I’ve apparently failed at.
    focus.

    In the us, fees and other banking costs associated with banking, as well as hurdles like the right id, are inhibitors to use of the banking system by the poor. The banks see you as a way to make money, if you are rich, they lend your money. If you are poor, they charge you high fees. I would think an efficient low cost digital currency would actually solve many of the banking accessibility issues faced by the poor.

    While the “underbanked” isn’t entirely a straw man, it’s as much an issue of education as it is access. Not sure a hard to use crypto currency is going to break people out of the payday lending or cash only cycle.

    Also, given that the issue is largely one of education, it seems alarming to me that there isn’t a trusted third party to both watch out for and assume some of the risk for these people. While it’s true banks and credit unions have fees and other charges, it’s also true that they assume liability and are obligated and incented to provide recourse to their customers. There’s no mechanism for that in BTC, which is what I’m really referring to with my poorly phrased question above. Transactions are one way, and without keys you’re hosed. That sucks, for all the reasons you shouldn’t hide your dollars under a mattress.
    focus.

Back in the 90s there was a backlash from industries that were defrauded by unscrupulous investment banks hawking 'easy and safe' currency hedging products. Nowadays it's a particularly large risk to developing countries along with investors and companies utilizing eurodollar-based debt. Every time the USD spikes in a sustained fashion the Fed has to intervene to prevent Asian/Latam crises redux scenarios.

    Talk about externalities. That's the system that you're defending, though you don't quite know enough to understand that.

    Yeah there'd still be risk under most scenarios. You can look it a few ways though. Any move towards lowering currency risk and improving liquidity with regional or global operators is a plus. Cryptocurrencies introduce the technical ability to go in that direction. The logistical ability is tbd. That guy in a recent vid made a good point in saying that bitcoin is a black hole for capital so long as it stays up & running. The longer it exists the greater the chance the logistical problems are addressed.

    Release the FOMO!
    https://www-forbes-com.cdn.ampprojec...rom%20%251%24s

    There was only one dominant talking point over the weekend and that was Bitcoin. The crypto king blasted the $10,000 level and made a new 2019 high which stands at $11,251. Although, it has retraced from that level and is currently trading at $10,757...

    ...To conclude, I do think the next rally is going to be a lot stronger than the previous. One can call it a bubble, but this time the Bitcoin price range could very well be between $60,000 to $100,000 .

    I was doing some maths recently and determined that there's around half a quadrillion of demand for assets in all their varied forms (bonds, currencies, stocks, real estate, etc.). The way to value bitcoin imo is top-down (how much of that yudge pie does btc warrant?) rather than bottom up (how much is one btc worth to those that need it for transfer of value?). The top-down approach puts the craziness into perspective and helps explain why the historically abnormal price surge isn't going anywhere. While the bottom-up approach is what we seem dedicated to validating (and arguably where a lot of the confusion and disbelief comes from). Price per coin just reflects the demand for the asset class.

    Pump it up, Jack!

    https://www.coindesk.com/square-is-e...mpression=true

    Payments company Square is rolling out bitcoin deposits for its mobile Cash App.

    The app, available on both Android and iOS, now supports deposits for at least some users, according to Twitter posts by bitcoiners and a check by a CoinDesk reporter of his own Square account Tuesday. Previously, users could purchase or sell bitcoin, as well as transfer the cryptocurrency to another wallet...
