The Wall Street firm's widely followed morning markets note highlights the spot price for the cryptocurrency. There it sits, right below a rundown of commodities and above the 10-year Treasury yield -- hardly fringe assets. ... ...

Cryptocurrencies are being billed as a new and improved form of money that has been offered to us courtesy of technological evolution. There is a big problem with this conclusion.

In the 2013 film titled “Her,” lonely Theodore, played by Joaquin Phoenix, falls in love with Samantha, an operating system. Despite Samantha’s lack of phy

Is That a Feature or a Bug?
We have covered many reasons why bitcoin is unsound and not money. It’s a ledger of unbacked liabilities. It is designed to have finite quantity but therefore indeterminate and hence volatile value. This makes it unusable for borrowing or lending and hence savings, but a great a vehicle for conversion of one person’s wealth into another’s income. It is not a commodity—discussion of the usefulness of the network notwithstanding—nor is it backed by a commodity or any asset. It is a perfect, crypto

Which, if any are Ponzi schemes?

  Governments Begin Testing Cryptocurrencies As Cash Use Plummets
Riksbank, Sweden’s central bank, is taking a serious look at Bitcoin. As cash use plummets and the amount of currency in circulation dwindles, central banks are looking to cryptocurrencies as government-backed money.

Is Bitcoin a Commodity, Gold Silver Report 24 Sep 2017
Carl Menger, father of the Austrian School of Economics, showed the world that money is not the product of the state.

He described how money emerges as the commodity which is most marketable (“absatzfähigkeit” in German). He discusses factors that limit marketability including to whom you can sell a particular good, where you can sell it
