Gestern in einem Livestream erwähnte der Blocktrainer einen unfreiwillig lustigen Tweet von Bitcoin-Hasser Peter Schiff. Der twitterte am 10. März verärgert, das jetzt sogar sein Sohn, Spencer Schiff, voll in Bitcoin eingestigen ist: "100% of his portfolio is now in Bitcoin. He sold the last of his #silver stocks to raise the cash." LOL, ich finde das äusserst komisch. Anstatt seinen eigenen Standpunkt mal zu überdenken, bezeichnet er seinen eigenen Sohn als "brainwashed". Was für ein Betonkopf.

Die FT nimmt sich BitCoin vor:

 

Just how useless is bitcoin?

Bitcoin brushed below $40,000 on Monday. Bears think the cryptocurrency is losing its vim. Conversely, one bull we spoke with, Joel Kruger of LMAX Group, noted bitcoin rallied back to $42,000 even as stocks kept falling. Unhedged has no clue either way.

If bitcoin is indeed heading toward an extended, or permanent, period of sluggish prices, the popular idea that it is a store of value, akin to digital gold, could lose credibility. Nagging questions about what the cryptocurrency is good for will grow louder.

The FT’s resident monetary historian Brendan Greeley amplified these questions in an excellent column over the weekend. He noted that BTCS, a Nasdaq-listed crypto firm, is offering investors a “bividend” — a terrible portmanteau for “bitcoin dividend.” Greeley thinks there is an important point here about bitcoin versus other cryptocurrencies:

Behind the bividend is a bet that, if correct, could have much larger consequences. [BTCS CEO Charles] Allen is offering to pay investors in bitcoin in part because BTCS has 90 bitcoins sitting on its balance sheet that have value, but no productive purpose. Bitcoin, according to Allen, is an unproductive asset, “just literally sitting there”. It might appreciate. But it doesn’t generate revenue, which has historically been the purpose of a publicly listed company . . . 

[BTCS’s $8.8m in] ethereum has a job. [Its $3.2m in] bitcoin does not. BTCS has begun staking — placing ethereum and some other cryptocurrencies in a kind of digital escrow, vying for a chance to verify a ledger of transactions. The more coins you have staked, the higher the likelihood you’ll get to verify the ledger. The reward is a fee of more coins.

BTCS makes money on ethereum staking, but can’t find anything better to do with bitcoin than return it to investors.

In principle, this distinction isn’t so binary. If BTCS was so inclined, it could transform its $3.2m in bitcoin into “wrapped” bitcoin — a kind of synthetic stand-in asset — on the ethereum blockchain, stake it there, earn a yield and convert the proceeds back to regular bitcoin.

In practice, this would likely incur steep fees and, worse, miff regulators. But even if earning yield on bitcoin is tricky now, it may get easier as technologists such as Square CEO Jack Dorsey pour resources into bitcoin-native decentralised finance. Bitcoin, in other words, need not be useless.

But even at its best, bitcoin is likely to fall short of ethereum or its newer rivals. Bitcoin is not really built to be useful. It is built to be trustless, decentralised, censorship-resistant and so on. Bitcoin’s years-long block-size war showed its community places decentralisation over usefulness. Attempting to compete with other cryptocurrencies on usability is likely a losing battle.

That is part of the reason why the currency-of-the-future story of bitcoin’s value has given way to the digital-gold story. The latter just needs the price to go up to appear true. It is far less ambitious.

The newer cryptocurrencies have the benefit of learning from bitcoin’s travails, and as such have chosen different design trade-offs. Many, like solana, have opted for usefulness over pure decentralisation. Bitcoiners complain such coins are DINOs: decentralised in name only. If that is the price of mass adoption, it strikes us as mighty cheap. (Ethan Wu)

Hassen tut der Peter Bitcoin nicht. Ohne Bitcoin wäre sein Twitter und Youtube Kanal wesentlich lebloser.
