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 vs. Metals

Filed under: topic icon fundamentals  medium icon articles

In one of the earliest pieces explicitly laying out the case for bitcoin as a potential replacement for gold, cypherdoc describes his personal path to realizing the power of bitcoin's properties and what that implies for bitcoin vs gold, as well as bitcoin vs fiat.

EXCERPT

I see Bitcoin as The People’s Money. It preserves privacy, not secrecy. Bitcoin represents the marriage of technology and gold. In fact, I will go so far as to say it is Digital Gold and could easily be used as an international reserve currency much like the metal itself was used until 1971 before Nixon took the world off the Gold Standard.

Why was Bitcoin invented? It was invented as a poison dart targeted directly at the heart of the problem; fiat currency debasement.
