"What’s noteworthy about this point is that, upon this particular halving, Bitcoin “inflating” at a roughly 1.8 percent rate annually will nominally — and by then, quite possibly in real terms — be “inflating” at a rate lower than both the Federal Reserve target of 2 percent per year and current, CPI-based estimates of real U.S. inflation of 1.9 pe…

"A first reaction could be that it is a great investment opportunity. A better reaction (from an EMH and non arbitrage point of view) would be that it is too good to be true." - PlanB If the efficient market hypothesis requires that known events be priced in, then how could the S2F be a model for Bitcoin's price? When such an obvious and unchanging…

A most profound aspect of Bitcoin is that we know, with certainty, what the monetary policy will be no matter how far we look into the future.
