Why Warren Buffet and Peter Schiff are Wrong on Bitcoin - CryptoCoinsNews

Why Warren Buffet and Peter Schiff are Wrong on Bitcoin - CryptoCoinsNews | money money money | Scoop.it

Although Warren Buffet and Peter Schiff are called out by name in the title of this article, this piece is really aimed at anyone who claims there is no fundamental value to a bitcoin. These two popular investors disagree on gold and many aspects of the economy, but the one thing they do agree on is the statement that bitcoins have no real value. The crux of their respective arguments comes down to the idea that using Bitcoin as a payment network does not necessarily increase the value of a bitcoin. Money goes into the Bitcoin network and then leaves it on the other side, so these bitcoins should be viewed as nothing more than checks or money orders.

The Origin of Money and Its Value

The Origin of Money and Its Value | money money money | Scoop.it
The importance of the Austrian school of economics is nowhere better demonstrated than in the area of monetary theory. It is in this realm that the simplifying assumptions of mainstream economic theory wreak the most havoc. In contrast, the commonsensical, "verbal logic" of the Austrians is entirely adequate to understand the nature of money and its valuation by human actors.

8 Reasons Why A New Global Financial Crisis Could Be On The Way - NASDAQ

8 Reasons Why A New Global Financial Crisis Could Be On The Way - NASDAQ | money money money | Scoop.it

We are now in a post-crisis period. Yet, looking back to between 1945 and 2008, we see that the frequency of financial crises and recessions is quite high: on average, there is one crisis every 58 months (using data from the US National Bureau of Economic Research). In other words, statistically speaking we should expect the beginning of the next crisis in April 2015, which would end by March 2016. So are we in a post- or a pre-crisis period?

There is nothing old about The Old Shoreditch Station café, a £1 coin’s throw away from Silicon Round-about, the home of East London’s Tech City. It’s about as cutting edge as a café can get. It’s not the menu — although the cappuccinos are religion-changingly good — it’s the price. They don’t charge for caffeine in silly old cash or credit cards. They take something new: bitcoins.

Bitcoin Chart Analysis – The End of Trend - CryptoCoinsNews | money money money | Scoop.it

Bitcoin Price is in the last leg of decline since the early-June high near $680. This downtrend, although relentless, is neither stronger nor more volatile than comparable declines in the first five months of 2014. In fact, the current wave down is characterized by little price swing and measured corrections. The big question is where it will end and the price level of the coming BTC/USD bottom will provide us with further clues as to the Bitcoin chart’s next move.

Recent movements in global markets following concerns about Portugal’s Banco Espirito Santo really had as much to do with market nerves after a long spell of repressed volatility as it did with the state of the bank’s balance sheet. Despite the current calm, everyone knows that volatility will return one day, and no one wants to be caught on the back foot when it does arrive. So the initial response is to hit the “sell” button and then ask questions.
