Just over ten years since the creation of Bitcoin, we have one of the most controversial presidents of modern times blasting the existence of Bitcoin publicly. Why would the president of the United States take time to cast opinion on something “based on thin air?”
One can only assume that cryptocurrency has been gaining traction behind the scenes and if the general public has just been brought into the loop from a political standpoint, you can be certain that the big players have already made substantial stakes and plans in the future of cryptocurrency. The confusion is being brought to the future retail investors and there is no better way to that than to politicize an effort.
Understand that the value of the US dollar is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States. It is no longer backed by physical gold. It is based on a form of psychological trust. This trust propels the economy and gets the honest person up in the morning to go out and make government backed money to support their living.
Honestly, it shows that if we really understood where the value of a dollar comes from, it should see magnificent swings in its value based on the majority party of any given election cycle, more so when a major change of party or leadership takes place.
Both the dollar and digital assets are based on trust in something. Albeit, one will not be hard pressed to find opposition of either asset class. Imagine the possibility of transferring trust from a politicized government backed currency to a system of checks and balances that resides on a global public ledger tracking all transactions without the ability to tamper. Take this notion even further and visualize a system of digital assets that improve and validate the flow of currency, real estate, contracts, goods and services globally in a regulatory framework that enhances transparency and accountability.
Let us see what October brings with various digital asset opportunities.
