‘Fiat Currency’

Out of all the mainstream hysteria about crypto that we have heard in 2017, one question of the utmost importance often goes unasked: why now, and what is happening to fiat currency? Bitcoin has existed since 2009. There have been many ups and downs between then and now. But nothing like what 2017 brought. The […]

Authored by Joseph Young via CoinTelegraph.com, According to Stefan Molyneux, a highly regarded Canadian podcast host, it is more important to recognize the free fall of fiat currencies, more so than to acknowledge the exponential growth rate of Bitcoin. Molyneux says: ‘It’s not so much that Bitcoin is going through the roof – it’s that […]

One of the most durable claims of cryptocurrency skeptics is that “governments will ban bitcoin once it threatens their fiat currency or their control.” Ben Bernanke recently gave voice to this claim as if it was received wisdom.
