Bitcoin's low number of transactions may make it less suitable for daily transaction. It does not matter. “Bitcoin as store of value” Is what matters.
Like gold coins, Bitcoin is simply too valuable to be used in daily transactions. There is no reason that we will ever need to use Bitcoin to buy a cup of coffee. That transaction size is handled fine by Visa or in the future, central bank digital currencies (“FedCoin”) may provide the main payment rails for the financial system.
Gold is not a perfect store of value:
One of the hallmarks of the “efficient market hypothesis” (EMH) is that current information and future information that is known today will get priced into an asset.
If everyone knows that Apple will beat earnings this quarter, those expected earnings will get priced into Apple’s stock even before earnings are actually reported. Likewise, if everyone begins to believe that there is a 50% chance that PlanB’s model will still be working well in 2028 the fair value or expected value of Bitcoin should be $1,500,000 today.
In Bitcoin, you have public addresses and private keys:
Bitcoin solves all of Gold problems.
A store of value is a way of transmitting wealth across space and across time. it is useful when you want to preserve the surplus value for future spending.
Gold 🪙 has historically been the defacto preserver of value. From the 70e however our money are no longer linked to gold so Central Banks are stealing our savings through money printing and inflation.
Is a paper famous for coming up with a valuation got Bitcoin. It borrows the concept of “stock-to-flow” from precious metals analysts. “Stock-to-flow” (henceforth “S2F”) as a way of measuring the relative scarcity of a commodity. With the analogy the price of bitcoin is predicted to hit:
If you do not hold your own private keys, the Bitcoin is not really yours. If someone else holds your private keys (like PayPal, Robinhood, or any cryptocurrency exchange), you do not control your own Bitcoin. The Bitcoin does not truly belong to you. It can be lost, hacked, seized, or otherwise confiscated.
If you need to log in to an account to view your Bitcoin, it probably means that someone else is holding your private keys for you.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
