Michel covers the many benchmarks and metrics he and his colleagues have researched and developed at Cambridge, including the Bitcoin Electricity Consumption Index, as well as the true user base of the Bitcoin ecosystem. Michel is very detailed and analytically-driven, and extremely bright in parsing through the noise. We continue the discussion beyond the hard metrics, and review the true utility of Bitcoin versus other systems. We also review the various categories of possible, future digital fiat systems, at the central bank digital currency (CBDC) level, stablecoin level, and corporate coin level (Libra).
