The cashless policy that developed countries are trying to establish is one reason that will push up the demand for bitcoins.

I dont think it will push up the demand for bitcoins...there is currently no reason to change...
Inflation is a term much maligned in today’s media, but correctly managed it is not necessarily a bad thing.  The European Central bank has as one of its objectives the management of inflation within the Eurozone area and this management is generally accepted as maintaining the inflation rate as close to 2% as is possible.  If inflation begins to rise above this magic figure then the ECB imposes credit restrictions via interest rate management and reels in economic activity back.

We need a cryto-currency that people won't tend to hoard.  It needs to hold it's value day to day, but generally decrease in value over the long term in a similar way as fiat currency.  The job of the FED can be accomplished with an open formula for all to see so that it is fair and people know what they are getting.  Money supply can be controlled in real time in response to several factors like "money velocity", "adoption rate", and whatever other economic factors that must be accounted for to keep prices relatively stable, yet slowly inflating.

I think the problem is that it's hard for cryptocurrencies to adjust for these factors in realtime.  The rate at which currency is created is set in the code that defines the cryptocurrency itself.  Wouldn't any formula have to rely on a central authority to determine the value of factors like "money velocity" and "adoption rate?"

Bitcoin's decentralization is awesome.  But it in one way its the most centralized currency ever: One person decided the exact amount currency that would exist, and the exact moment it would be created.  For the entire life of the currency.

The Bitcoin is a native response that gives the life , to the  degenerated financial system. He returns money  to their natural role as a medium of exchange. It takes the authority of politicians to artificially manipulate the economy.

Inflation is when the value of Bitcoin decreases when the total supply of Bitcoin increases

I think we will see more inflation of the Bitcoin in the nearest future if some new regulatory instrument won't come into power. The more and more people trying to enter the bitcoin industry as miners or traders. If their number will be equal we will see the stable prices but if not, well, I think the price will go down cuz and inflation rate will increase.

If Hayek's good money (neither price inflated nor deflated) becomes true with blockchain tech, what's response form crypto world?

Price-Inflation is the opposite. When prices of goods/services increase because the value of Bitcoin goes down.

While the share of BTC is relatively small in the global economy's inflation / deflation does not matter, except for speculation.

The market cap of bitcoin is relatively small. Just above 9 billion. We might suffer from a small amount of inflation/deflation, but it's barely noticable.

This information is very useful to me who are beginners, because I've learned at this forum,

I have to agree. This is pages and pages of debate for sure but very informative debate.

Yes life is always as it is, the supply of money was highly doubtful to decrease for it is implemented by the bank and accepted of human as a means of value.
Just like BTC it could inflate in the next few years or so, having said that we could earn a lot from inflation but not in deflation.

An area dedicated to discussing the differences of these two terms and the theories supporting them.

I'm looking forward to an in-depth discussion on the subject! I've noticed that confusion between the two seems to come up quite a bit on the forum, and thought it may be reasonable to dedicate a thread on the matter.

Pulled from a discussion in Wall Observer



Price-Deflation is what you are used to hearing about in Bitcoin. That term is used to describe the prices of goods/services as they decrease, because the value of Bitcoin goes up.

Price-Inflation is the opposite. When prices of goods/services increase because the value of Bitcoin goes down.

So, when dealing with Price-Inflation or Deflation, there is an inverse relationship of price and value, in regard to goods/services and Bitcoin.

Example: As the Bitcoin price goes from $10 to $20, the prices of goods/services goes down from 20BTC to 10BTC. As the Bitcoin price goes from $20 to $10, the prices of goods/services goes from 10BTC to 20BTC!

Why does the price of Bitcoin go up and down? The price of BTC goes up and down based on the exchange rate, or market price, which is set by buyers and sellers, or traders. They directly trade the Bitcoin currency with all sorts of other currency, and even some with gold; the most popular being the USD (US dollar). They set the price when executing orders to buy or sell. I will get into the actual reason of why the price fluctuates in the last section.



Now that we've gone over PRICE Inflation and Deflation (which honestly, to me, is a term made popular by Keynesian's to hide the real facts, as price inflation/deflation is simply the market exchange rate, reflective of the money supply into a currency from itself and other currencies), let's go over the REAL inflation/deflation of a currency (otherwise known by many as Monetary Inflation).

MoneySupply-Inflation is when the value of Bitcoin decreases when the total supply of Bitcoin increases. In our current state, this is at a generation rate of 25 BTC every 10 minutes.

MoneySupply-Deflation will essentially never occur. It is when the value of Bitcoin increases when the total supply of Bitcoin decreases. This may happen, say, when someone loses their private key and all the BTC associated with it are lost. This effectively "makes the rest of us richer". That being said, there is a SET DECREASE in the generation rate of BTC, so you have sort of a "deflationary effect" in the value, as long as more exchange occurs for BTC at a rate which is faster than that set generation rate.

When all 21 million coins are produced, the MoneySupply will be neutral, and the value will continue to increase (prices will decrease, consequently), as long as people continue to exchange in BTC.

This leads me to the last section.



What determines the PRICE of Bitcoin? The VALUE of Bitcoin at a particular moment.

What determines the VALUE of Bitcoin? The SUPPLY and DEMAND of Bitcoin in the economy.

What determines the SUPPLY of Bitcoin? Currently, the MoneySupply-Inflation rate of 25 BTC every 10 minutes, and traders willing to SELL Bitcoin to BUYERS in exchange for other supplies of money (currencies).

What determines the DEMAND of Bitcoin? Traders willing to BUY Bitcoin from SELLERS in exchange for other currencies.


Therefore: BUYERS, SELLERS, and MONEYSUPPLY-INFLATION (miners) determine the VALUE of Bitcoin, which determines the PRICE of BTC as BUYERS and SELLERS trade based on that VALUE (or supply and demand) of Bitcoin.


We don't exactly know the totality of the supply and demand. Sure, we could try and aggregate data from all the exchanges, but we will never be accurate as there are exchanges which can not be accounted for (OTC). The cool thing is that we DO know the MoneySupply rate, and we DO know the exchange rate. From this, we can determine a real value of Bitcoin when simply multiplying the two factors; a sort of inflation-adjusted view of the currency.

Effectively, the quantitative analysis of supply and demand is really what the currency exchange traders attempt to accurately determine which is conveyed through buying and selling of Bitcoin, setting a VALUE via the PRICED exchange rate of the currency. On a side note, most of the big Market Makers (FX Traders) use this price movement as a way to make a profitable living, as well. Especially when price fluctuations are a consequence of hype or fear (bubbles, cliffs), not factual supply/demand data, and are wildly out of the real price range.

Thus, if you analyze the proper macroeconomic data in an attempt to forecast future DEMAND for more Bitcoin (price increase), you will realize some very interesting things, and have a more accurate picture of where the price is going...

Happy trading! Wink

This post is definitely helping me to understand on what proper terminology i should use. Many posters are confused between the difference and usage of its term and sometimes it appears to be the same when in fact it is different. I am thankful that you posted this on the forum it is of big help to me and makes thins more clearer especially the inflation deflation stuff.

It can't be either deflationary or inflationary by definition. In both cases you are making a price prediction with which you could make a risk free profit if it held true. Whether you have to go long or short, you would in the end trade away the expectation.

Um...how do I logic?
