"While Bitcoin can control the number of users inside the network, it has no control over the number of users accessing the network through custodial banks. The growth of this banking layer is outside of the protocol’s control and could grow into a systemic risk for Bitcoin." - Hasu
Today we read yet another great piece by @hasufl and @suzhu available on uncommoncore.co on the core value offered by Bitcoin as a system and the high level trends in macroeconomics and technology that could lead to enormous future demand for just such an asset.
Another excellent piece from Su Zhu and Hasu at uncommoncore.co and a great introduction to the dynamics and risks at stake in the cashless society. Is the cashless society the frictionless future we want? Or is it frictionless mass surveillance and frictionless negative interest rates? Cash may serve a far more important role than merely a means of payment.
"When Satoshi Nakamoto invented bitcoin, he did not invent a new social contract. Satoshi did something else—he leveraged technology to solve many problems of past implementations and implemented the old contract in a new and better way." - @hasufly
