Why Bitcoin is the Path to Economic Stability

Bitcoin is Profoundly Stable.

  1. It has prevented bitcoins from ever being mis-spent or re-spent.
  2. It has issued a precisely predictable supply.
  3. It has allowed owners to spend coins without restriction.
  4. It has allowed anyone in the world to use Bitcoin.
  5. It has allowed anyone in the world with a basic computer to verify all of these facts for themselves without having to trust anybody else.

Bitcoin’s Adoption is a Mass Migration Towards its Stability

What’s Volatile is National Currencies

  1. None offer any promises of predictability of supply — and many, including the dollar have seen massive supply increases in recent times.
  2. None are entirely resistant from being seized by crooks or authorities.
  3. None offer their holders unrestricted permission to use them — regulations exist that require owners to identify themselves and declare their uses for values above certain thresholds.
  4. None offer access to every citizen of the world — many specifically embargo people from other nations from using them.
  5. And none can have their supply verified or audited independently — it’s doubtful if even the authorities in charge actually know the supply that exists.
