Why Will Bitcoin NEVER Become a World Currency

Hi! Today from the Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Today I will tell you why Bitcoin will never become the world means of payment. Stay with me till the of this video. We will have a contest and something to win. [Music] The title of this video may come surprising to my audience – to the people who know that I’m an early Bitcoin investor. Bitcoin supporter and true cryptocurrency believer. But nevertheless I don’t believe Bitcoin will become the dominating currency in the sense of being the global medium of exchange. So, I’ll explain to you why it’s my conviction and meanwhile you can observe the crypto sharks behind me. And if they are gonna attack me and maybe eat me for breakfast. But you should know about Gresham’s law. Gresham’s law is a financial law stating that a bad currency pushes a good currency out of the market. What does it mean? Imagine you have two currencies: A and B. And you hold in both of these currencies, let’s say, $100,000. In both of these currencies. A and B. The currency A is a bad currency, which means it falls in value with every day… maybe every year. But generally it depreciates. It’s getting less in value. And the currency B is a good currency meaning it appreciates in value. Meaning it gains in value every year, every day. On the long term, on the middle term. It gains in value. Now! Imagine you want now to buy a car for let’s say $50,000. Which of these currencies would you use to buy the car? Of course, the currency A! The bad currency. Why? Because you want to keep the better currency – the currency that gains in value and give away the currency that depreciates as quickly as possible. That’s why, by the way, the central banks are lowering the interest rates as much as possible. Because they want people to give away, to use the currency to speed up the throughput of the currency in the economy. It just supports the economy. So, it means for a private person, for a company, for an institution… It just makes sense. It makes economic sense to give away or to use the bad currency while purchasing services, goods and to keep the good currency in your savings account or just not to touch it because it appreciates. So, in the middle term, in the long term you’re just better off with that strategy. And when everybody does it and everybody thinks rationally, everybody thinks economically, then in the effect the good currency is pushed out from the usage in the economy by the bad currency. Applying this to, let’s say, crypto world or applying this to Bitcoin… It would mean Bitcoin is a really good currency because you have a limited supply. You can’t inflate the currency. You can’t inflate Bitcoin. There will be only 21,000,000 Bitcoins in existence any time in the future. Maximum. So, it means it will long term, middle term, long term it will always gain in value. It’s a good, a very good currency. But there will be currencies that aren’t that good. That are losing in value. One of the currencies is of course dollar or other fiat currencies but even if they go cashless, if they will be like electronic currency… The goal and the strategy of governments is to inflate the currency in order to have the economy go around; in order to stimulate the economy. So, these currencies will dominate in trade. These currencies willl be used in trade, in payments and Bitcoin will be used as store of value. So, if I say I don’t believe Bitcoin will become the world currency, the world medium of payment it doesn’t mean it will be worthless. It doesn’t mean it will lose it’s value. Not at all. It means that Bitcoin will be used as storage of value and other currencies either be it a cryptocurrency or maybe some fiat currency Or maybe government based digital money will be used in trade, in exchange, in payments. So, as a consequence the success of Bitcoin, meaning the rising value of Bitcoin will at the same time become the reason for Bitcoin not becoming the world currency. It will paradoxically become it’s kind of limitation. I see you liked this video. Give me a thumb up, subscribe below and don’t forget to hit the bell button in order not to miss my other videos.

I talk to also a lot about the thinking of the best entrepreneurs in the world. How the self-made billionaires in the world think and act. These are the people I’ve met, I’ve interviewed and I write a book about them. I also talk about how to do the impossible. These are my experiences from ultra-running and from other challenges that I’ve acomplished. Now coming to the competition that I promised in the beginning of the video.

  1. Do you think it is a good decision to exchange all bytes for blackbytes? From what I have read blackbytes are better version of bytes and are much cheaper. Luckily they are still less known than bytes, but in the future people would use something that is better and that's blackbyte. Do you think in the future blackbytes will be more expensive than bytes?

  2. Very interesting Gresham Law, but growth of economy depends on growth of liquidity. Maybe why Bitcoin cannot be world currency. Thanks Rafael. #SecretsSelfmadeBillionaires

  3. interesting perspective.. however I am just thinking if too high prices of BTC will not have an adverse effect on bitcoin pretty soon and will discourage "average Kowalski" or "Mr.Smith" from investing in it (because they will be afraid to but at so high prices?)

  4. well you actually talk even more crypto than Andres, which is good, but am surprised a bit with this referenced video.
    A) 0 inflation for Bitcoin = increase in value. AGREED
    B) at the same time it could be a killer for bitcoin. People want to store safely (assuming store of value) and bitcoin with centralisation of mining pools becomes less and less safe………….
    my feel is that bitcoin will collapse soon. Too many early investors are controlling this animal and mining pools doing the same on top of it.
    In result it will not be safe ENOUGH to store the value as gold is today.
    What are your thoughts on this ? You seem to be up to date on this topic a lot.

  5. I have transferred Byteball Bytes for the winners of the contest in this video.

    The winner is:
    -NotBlockchain(Twitter) – 150,000,000 Byteball bytes – B7ZPZD6MMHCTEQUAQOUN6PNTNPUEJ3K6

    Congratulations! I invite everybody to participate in contests in the recent videos. We will soon choose the next winners
