Bitcoin is poised to benefit from global hyperinflation

Wednesday, July 8, 2020 - 19:59 by Joseph M. Wagner II

Bitcoin’s relatively low volatility may have a lot of traditional bulls turned off but all along we and many other analysts have said that a day would come when Bitcoin has shed its volatility. Just like a fraternity brother graduating from college would enter into the real world as a productive member of the economy, leaving its keg stands and one night stands in exchange for a career and family.

The fact that Bitcoin’s maturity to a stable and truly viable asset is furthering that evolution amidst chaos among all major markets domestic and abroad is truly fascinating. In fact, in the early onset of the pandemic in America that caused a crash in equities, precious metals as well as Bitcoin showed us how BTC was still tied to equities. But the timing of the correction as well as the correlation afterwards showed how Bitcoin had now started to trade in tandem with gold. This is more evidence that it is being perceived as a safe haven.

This is increasingly important due to the massive global relief effort through the action of central banks worldwide and the massive amounts of debt that countries are taking on will inevitably prove to devalue currencies across the globe leading to worldwide inflation. Gold is the king of protecting wealth during inflationary periods, but the up and coming heir to the thrown has to be Bitcoin.

Since we have never experienced a global period of hyperinflation other than after world war two and it is not a far stretch to say that we could easily reach WWII levels of economic and mortal devastation.

This would have a profound impact on the price of Bitcoin as well as traditional safe haven assets that will slowly be outdated. This is not to say Gold will not increase its value by leaps and bounds but simply in this new era the many advantages of Bitcoin vs gold such as, easier and cheaper to store, easier and cheaper to send or receive, easier to spend (especially in coming years, decades) will put it ahead of traditional safe haven assets. Especially in a pandemic were as physical currencies may be hosting covbid-19.

So although today’s 2.3% gain in BTC futures is welcome it is not as bullish as the fact that since the end of May we have seen BTC prices trading in a stable range from $9,000 - $10,000  currently smack dab in the middle of that range currently at $9,505.

The longer we see this stability amidst chaos across all other markets the more we can expect Bitcoin to take a bigger piece of global investing and wealth preservation.

Before I go into today’s article I would like to point out a mistake in yesterday’s article at the end of the equation I solved it said $650 was the price per Bitcoin after the first halving took place, while it was in fact the price after the second halving. I have also decided to come back to that equation on a later date as it is very tedious and I feel the markets deserve our attention right... Read more

  So as I promised yesterday today I will attempt to give an understanding of how this equation I hypothesized works. I will go through and solve it step by step in order for you to be able to use this formula in the distant future and just what it predicts for BTC’s price if it continues to hold true. As a clarification this formula isn’t precise to within a single decimal nonetheless it... Read more

The title of our article is a reference to the Bitcoin mining reward per block being cut in half from 12.5 to 6.25. This marked the third halving event since Bitcoin’s creation and it is designed to cut block rewards for miners 29 more times, with the next two estimated to occur around 2024 and 2028. Sunday the day prior to this event Bitcoin lost about 20% in value and although there is a direct... Read more
