In this week’s Crypto Long & Short, @noelleinmadrid shows how those that say bitcoin is in a “bubble” don’t understand the financial meaning of the word. https://t.co/htAOPsZI3DOpen
Commentators who say bitcoin is in a “bubble” don't know what they're talking about. The cryptocurrency's intrinsic value is still unclear.
OPINION: "The spotlight on bitcoin bubbles is beneficial because the influx of investors helps make the currency more liquid – more widely accepted as payment and easier to be quickly exchanged," says Yanhao "Max" Wei @USCMarshall. #btc https://t.co/sjlhJ94VTWOpen
Far from being damaging to bitcoin, bubbles help bring in new users and ultimately accelerate the project's growth.
OPINION: John Mac Ghlionn argues that Bitcoin is not a financial bubble. It has real uses, like storing value for institutions. But it is an epistemic bubble, he says. Bitcoiners often reject inconvenient information and perspectives, however valid. https://t.co/Z9w3OvyMpvOpen
