Jeffrey Tucker – Bitcoin's Brilliant Combination

Jeffrey Tucker – Bitcoin’s Brilliant Combination:

Jeffrey Tucker (@JeffreyATucker) writes of meeting Bernard von NotHaus why Mr. NotHaus is relevant to digital currency.  Excerpts:

“Economist F.A. Hayek wrote that it was entirely possible that a high-quality private money could compete with a government money.”

“But who would step out and make the attempt? What entrepreneur would dare come forward and offer up an alternative as a product in the consumer market?  Bernard von NotHaus was the man”

“The notion that government was trying to protect a marvelous system against domestic terrorism is mind-boggling, since the truth is rather obvious: The government was trying to protect a terrible system from being overthrown by competition.”

“Bitcoin is a brilliant combination of the Liberty Dollar’s soundness and Napster’s distribution methods, with a few extra features thrown in to protect it against shutdowns.”

“The revolution will not occur with guns and battles, but through enterprise, entrepreneurship, and a billion tiny acts of peaceful consumer choice.”

Matthew Lynn – Gold Isn't Only Alternative To Paper Money

Matthew Lynn – Gold Isn’t Only Alternative To Paper Money:

In an article on Marketwartch, writer Matthew Lynn (@MattLynnWriter) describes how gold’s role as a store of value alternative to paper money will be seeing competition from digital currencies.  Excerpts:

“As the American [dollar] grows in strength — as seems likely given its relative performance compared with the rest of the world — then gold will be less valuable as an alternative.”

“Gold is nothing if not a long-term investment [however] the most important threat is the rise of alternative digital currencies such as bitcoin.”

“As a rival to paper money, gold has had the market to itself. Now it will have competition, and that always drives down the price of any product.”

“Financial sophisticates might dismiss digital currencies as a craze. But plenty of other industries have been taken apart by the Internet — there is no reason why the money market should be any different.”

“In many ways, digital currencies may be a better alternative to paper money than gold.”

Phil Archer – Bitcoin Versus Fiat Versus Gold

Phil Archer – Bitcoin Versus Fiat Versus Gold:

In Phil Archer’s latest article on TheGenesisBlock.com (@TheGenesisBlock) he compares Bitcoin against fiat money and gold.  Excerpts:

“There are nine distinct characteristics of money: scarce, durable, portable, divisible, easy to recognize, easy to store, fungibile, hard to counterfeit, and widespread use. At first glance, bitcoin has a significant advantage over fiat currencies and gold in many of these.”
