What is it: This shows bitcoin's ROI vs other potential inflation hedge assets.

Why it matters: As with the historical bitcoin price table, we see bitcoin's extreme outperformance vs other assets here as well. Bitcoin's relatively small size, plus fundamental properties, yield extreme outperformance when even relatively small funds-flows find their way to BTC.

Bitcoin is Key to an Abundant, Clean Energy Future

Filed under: topic icon fundamentals  medium icon reports

This joint piece from Square Crypto and ARK Invest discusses the stabilizing effects that bitcoin mining can have on an energy grid, and how this incentivizes more rapid deployment of solar energy capacity, and other renewables.

EXCERPT

In this memo, we aim to explain how the Bitcoin network functions as a unique energy buyer that could enable society to deploy substantially more solar and wind generation capacity.

...

We believe there are two large implications if bitcoin mining becomes normalized as an energy buyer of last resort. First, the amount of solar and wind energy on the grid could increase dramatically... The second major potential impact could be a sizable transformation and greening of the bitcoin mining industry.

...

With real-world data, we (ARK Invest) demonstrate that bitcoin mining could encourage investment in solar systems (solar grids + batteries), enabling renewables to generate a higher percentage of grid power with potentially no change in the cost of electricity.
