How Cathie Wood Bought Bitcoin and Ruled the ETF Rankings

My thought on Bitcoin in the Beltway after Sunday

Continuation of previous topic.
So today was a shorter day. I missed some presentation times since I was preparing for my own panel.
I attended a part of the "Digital Currencies vs. the Empire". Early on Angela Keaton was sharing her stories about how government was illegally surveying her company.
I couldn't stay for the whole talk as I wanted to catch the Maidsafe presentation. Unfortunately, that was a waste as they were a no-show. Oh well.
Afterwards I attended "Fear Not the Silk Road" by Kristov Atlas. He talked about Silk Road decreasing the amount of violent crimes, as well as empowering anyone to make their own business using highly-anonymous technoligies, such as Open Bazaar. All in all, soon relatively cheap technologies will be able to empower the people in oppressive regimes.
Next up, Chris Odom of Open Transactions talked about his project. He and his team moved to Switzerland to be able to develop truly free software. The platform is gaining more and more features as they integrate more and more elements from Namecoin and Bitmessage. The talk was really brief and to the point.
The next talk I attended was on "Bitcoin in Space" by Jeff Garzik, where he talked about putting small cubesat satellites onto low earth orbit and using them to put full Bitcoin nodes in space. This would allow anyone around the world be able to synchronize their clients even in an event of local Internet being shut down. It really looks like an interesting project, even if the practical applications might be limited.
The main presentation of the day was "How Blockchain Technology Can Mend the Broken Nonprofit Sector" by M.K. Lords, Andreas, Davi Barker and Jason King, where they talked about nonprofits and Bitcoin. Overall, the consensus is that it is easier for nonprofits to accept Bitcoin donations than credit card donations, but despite that there are few Bitcoin charities. A number of charities are also skewing their mission statement to be in line with some grant requirements. Andreas jokingly suggested that if Jason redefined his mission statement from feeding the homeless of Pensacola, to "dropping food onto homeless from planes in Pensacolastan", he would get a lot of government funding ;). It was also mentioned that Bitcoin might be an only option for some charities to even exist - for example if you have a charity for women in oppressed countries where it is impossible for them to even have bank accounts, they have no other way of receiving donations. All in all, Bitcoin is a great solution for the charities.
The day concluded with a talk by me and David Lowy on "The Singularity of Money" replacing Cody Wilson that couldn't make it today. We talked about how in the future the currency won't matter, only the value. Instead of seeing a single world currency, we will probably be seeing a number of easily exchangeable currencies being used. Crypto 2.0 systems will be integral in making this happen.
Overall, the day was less eventful than yesterday, probably because a lot of people have already left to attend a conference in China. It was still interesting.

David Hunter, chief macro strategist at Contrarian Macro Advisors, has for some time predicted a final “melt up” stage of the market cycle before markets experience a historic crash to rival 1929.

As bitcoin matures, the largest cryptocurrency trades more like gold, a store of value, as evidenced by the two assets’ close correlation with each other this year. This correlation is likely to hold, said Mike McGlone, commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, and the same macroeconomic forces pushing gold higher are likely to drive bitcoin as well. So if bitcoin is starting to trade ... Bitcoin, she reasoned, was the purest play possible.

Bitcoin is interesting, and something (or many things) like it might succeed ultimately, but I’m a Bitcoin skeptic for several reasons. Money is a medium of exchange and can also be a standard of value for extending credit. When a commodity is a standard of value, notes promising the commodity themselves become money, i.e. people will accept ...
