I think Bitcoin is in trouble. Of course everyone says that who doesn’t believe in it. One of Bitcoin’s hopes was that it could replace gold as a store of value when the stock market was down, overall economic downturn, or problems with the dollar. None of that is proving true. As the stock market falls so has bitcoin. If you watch Bitcoin its merely an income producer for the biggest holders. Holders that will always be the biggest holders because of the way its designed. A limited amount of coins will be made from this point on. They trade it up to $10K and then sell it down to $6Kish. Then they buy it back and repeat the process.
Here are a few reasons I don’t see any point in owning bitcoin.
One, it does nothing that I can’t do elsewhere. I use my phone to pay for stuff. I keep a spare credit card and $20 in my phone case and its all I need. Bitcoin just isn’t a good digital payment.
I think Apple stock is a better place to put my money if I want to hold it. Its super liquid and I can withdraw my money from my trading account same day. I’ve had good gains, smaller fluctuations, and I feel more comfortable.
As I mentioned above bitcoin doesn’t appear to be similar to gold in that it doesn’t hold during downturns . It was the one reason I even contemplated owning BTC
I have plenty of asset diversification. I probably have more than most domain investors in that I own a few businesses, have a broad range of investment types, and have joint investments with my wife as well. A bad economy certainly hurts me but my bonds, land, and real estate hold a little better than the stock market.
Finally, the main reason I don’t like bitcoin is anonymity. The lack of tracking and anonymity of transactions lends itself toward corruption. When there is no way to track the bad it will spoil the good. The first time I sent bitcoin and worried for the next 15 minutes of whether I typed in account wrong reminded me that I should never have to worry that much about sending money. I should be able to make a mistake and not lose everything. “So don’t make a mistake” I won’t. I’ll just wire it.
