Bitcoin news this week was not confined to crashing prices. An even more ominous trend for bitcoin has emerged, as reported in this article.

Bitcoin usage dropped almost 80% in the year ending last September. While bitcoin has always served as a speculative gamble and utility token for criminals, many advocates hoped that bitcoin could break out and become a true currency offering liquidity and price stability. Instead, the opposite has happened.

Along with a usage collapse comes a price collapse from $6,500 to $3,500 per coin in a matter of weeks, a nearly 50% price crash on top of the 67% crash that took place earlier this year. One commentator claims, “There would have to be a stability requirement if [bitcoin] is to become another form of money.”

That’s a nice sentiment, but it’s detached from reality. Bitcoin is failing in every important category of suitability as money — price stability, convenience, transaction cost, speed, sustainability, scalability and volume.

What’s happening with bitcoin is not a bump in the road but the end of a fantasy. That’s been my view for a long time, and now the data support that view.

The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

HERE’S ANOTHER ELITE WITH ANOTHER PLAN TO TAX AWAY YOUR WEALTH

The elites never rest when it comes to devising new ways to take your money through taxes, inflation or outright confiscation. The latest Trojan horse the elites are riding to take your money is climate change. The climate does change over long periods of time for reasons that are not well understood except that they

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
