The Future of Bitcoin with Nic Carter What Bitcoin Did

    • Investing

“Satoshi had to do so much to win our trust. Everything open source. Everything with fair warning; full disclosure. Create the most auditable monetary system ever, and then leave the project. What other digital asset or cryptocurrency has done even 1/10th of the things Satoshi did to convince us that this was a legitimate and fair thing. I mean I haven’t seen anything even remotely approximating that.”— Nic Carter

What to some may have seemed wild conjecture last year, has now become real. A major public company and a nation state are now operating under a Bitcoin Standard. But, as the digital asset matures, so do the discussions and consideration of Bitcoin in terms of its role within society. 
With growing regulatory scrutiny in the US, what are the specific regulatory risks for Bitcoin? How should we acknowledge US political support and opposition? What is Bitcoin’s role as competition to the state’s monopoly on money? How does it facilitate alternatives to sovereign currencies, and how will currency failures in a world with Bitcoin manifest themselves? 
All these questions feed into the fundamental debate now manifesting itself within the Bitcoin community: will hyperbitcoinisation occur? Does it need to occur? Can Bitcoin successfully thrive as a societal good in tandem with Fiat currencies and central banks?
In this interview, I talk to Nic Carter, Partner at Castle Island Ventures and co-founder and Chairman of Coin Metrics. We discuss Bitcoin’s maturing role within the evolving US and global economy, and it’s role in relationship to stable coins, gold, and the US dollar.
