Bankless is a good site for that stuff, they'd Mark Cuban on their podcast a few weeks back. I had to listen to it 3 times to understand it all but he has some cracking ideas about where Blockchain/DeFi is going. It's episode 54 of "Bankless" if anyone fancies it

How can cryptocurrencies work and be the future and sustainable when orthadoxic economic beliefs tell us that for fiat currencies to work they need to be taxed, otherwise Weimer Republic-style hyperinflation takes hold? 

Outside of the UK, aren't cryptocurrencies mostly lightly taxed?

How can bitcoin, and the like, hold any long-term value, then? Surely any gains you make can only be based on short-term speculation.
Cryptocurrencies are massively taxed, via CGT. If I got to buy a Tesla with a Bitcoin (as they currently advertise), I'd have to pay Capital Gains Tax on the movement of Bitcoin since I bought it. That's one of the main reasons I don't see it as a currency any time soon.

Crypto is an asset, like Gold, and it has a limited number. The more people that want that limited number, the higher the price will go. Gold only has a value because people want it, and that's survived hundreds of years as a store of value. Everything else in our lives has gone digital, why not our asses/gold.

But gold has tangible and immutable value.

I had a friend at work who invested in various cryptocurrencies but he had to do enormous, regular and exhaustive research. And even then the gains were relatively slim.

I'm not sure the industrial usage of gold would warrant it being however many thousand a kilo it is these days. It's used a bit in engines, and aerospace, after that it's mainly jewellery again where it's only valuable because people say it's valued.

Yeah very hard to see where the millions will be made in crypto. I invest through a company called KR1. They're basically investors in a bunch of different crypto initiatives, so you're buying a stake in loats of crypto initiatives and crypto coins. LEave someone more clever than me to figure it out.

The main point of crypto and DeFi is making everything public and moving away from corporations. In some ways, the success of crypto may be making lots of things cheaper/free, so it may be a revolution that nobody in particular makes billions.

Thanks. I find it an interesting subject, without understanding a great deal about it. But it seems to me that if we can move away from central banks, like the privately owned Federal Reserve, all the better.

I know that, under the influence of Max Keiser, Galloway's failed bid for the London Mayorlty included a move towards a cryptocurrency-funded City Hall.

Whether that would have really worked or not, I don't know.

Right I never bought Crypto before until just now. I bought €20 worth of XRP based purely on you mugs talking it up. When can I hand in my notice in work and live a life of luxury?

I’d say you would be safe enough to just go in and take a sh*t on the bosses desk today now that you have bought👍🏻

Keep an eye on Stellar! I got in at .08 and it's up to .53! Steadily climbing up. This time last year it was worth .04 a coin
