https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-23/unprecedented-shocking-proposal-boes-mark-carney-urges-replacing-dollar-libra


"Then along came former Goldman banker and current (outgoing) BOE governor, Mark Carney, who in his lunchtime address laid out a shocking, radical proposal - perhaps the most stunning thing to ever be unveiled at Jackson Hole - urging to replace the US Dollar with a "Libra-like" reserve currency in a dramatic revamp of the global monetary, financial and economic order."


I think Carney really just wants to make Bitcoin the Global Reserve, he just brought up "Libra-like" as a Trojan Horse.  His Corn bags are full of course.  Cool

The list of reasons to hold bitcoin keeps growing:

Imagine five years ago if in one solitary week the president of the United States of America -


Referred to himself as 'the chosen one'

'Hereby' ordered all American companies to leave China just like that.

Attempted to buy another country and called the PM of its custodian 'nasty' and cancelled his visit when they said they weren't too keen.


Truly, we are living in v strange times.

But Obama ordered a hamburger with Dijon mustard

https://youtu.be/cAvq12Sa3VE

So that makes it even

And in Pulp fiction... Samuel L Jackson gets crazy, we Belgium guys eating French fries with mayonaise Cheesy

Maybe he is hoping for a million a year job with a company like that advising.  The idea isnt new, its already in existance and I dont believe it was ever intended for one country to be the global reserve.  It has always been intended to be split with various nations as a percentage reserve.    I dont know what is in effect the case now but obviously Dollar is dominant in world trade for many reasons current and historic.

THe system thats already in operation and was last commonly mentioned around 2008 is the SDR system operated by the IMF.   Again its FIAT basically with some gold and heavy political bias in there.    SDR would take over from USD most likely.   I think Carney is hoping to take over the IMF job that is changing if I remember the news right.


I would relate this to Alan Greenspan talking about gold standard, completely seperate to how he operated policy when in office really.

Things are becoming more and more chaotic.
My preference would be for flat equities and for bitcoin to appreciate against this background.
It does not look this way at the moment.
Dow is actually below its Jan 22, 2018 value, some bull market we have. Oh, well.

I am still of the opinion that bitcoin needs at least a flat market to grow.
If stocks would get seriously smashed, btc would decline as well, at least initially.

Carney's libra-like ideas are meaningless without multiple major countries backing it and I don't see anyone even acknowledging it (so far).

If a european moved to PR, what would the tax situation look like?

I'd be more worried about hurricane shelters than tax shelters in Puerto Rico. On the plus side, you probably won't run out of paper towels anytime soon.


No, Trump took all the paper towels back with him on AF1.  Just a photo-op.

Libra-like ideas already exist: they are called SDR and are backed by IMF.
As SDR aren’t backed by any countries, actually they are opposed by many countries (because, you know, controlling world reserve money means power), they are pretty much unused.
This is the point: Libra doesn’t need the backing of countries to succeed.
Libra could succeed where IMF failed.

In the meantime it's looking like a good time to drop gold you hold and not bitcoins.

I don't mind gold going up as it increases the value we can eventually take via wealth transfer from gold toward bitcoin (from the old to the new). However, everybody was predicting a retrace of 1300-1350. Instead, gold ripped up (for now)

Yeah, but sad to see Hal make such a logic error. If the currency equalled the value of worldwide wealth, that would make all wealth the currency, leaving real wealth -- houses, cars, industrial equipment, agricultural stocks ... everything -- completely worthless.

I think that  you have a decently good point there, jbreher.

You gotta just count the value of various kinds of currencies that could be possibly be absorbed into bitcoin, and some of them are going to retain some value, even gold will not become worthless, and likely some paper currencies are still going to exist too.

So the top number should be reconsidered in light of those kinds of factors regarding which values are likely to flow into bitcoin, and surely there is still a decently amount of more room for bitcoin to grow, and $20 trillion does not seem  to be out of range, especially given that gold is about $7 trillion just by itself, and bitcoin is likely better than gold, even though a chunk of gold might make you feel good to hold in your hands, there is something pure about the liquidity of bitcoin being able to move it, store it, divide it and verify it with a lot better ease and more cheaply than gold without those third parties getting in the way, either.

The list of reasons to hold bitcoin keeps growing:

There's no reason to support ANY imaginary, valueless, digital shitcoin, govt tracking system, you 3 IQ idiot.  It's playing out exactly as I said all along:

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-23/unprecedented-shocking-proposal-boes-mark-carney-urges-replacing-dollar-libra

ANY support for these valueless shitcoins just gives credence to the govt's Chinese social credit score, cashless society slavery system they're trying to impose.  You're sitting here like a fucking drooling retard cheering for your own enslavement when you could just boycott all of this garbage, tell the govt and the evil cult of Judaism terrorists that they can go fuck themselves, you won't touch any of their digital scams, and insist on using only physical metals instead.

Get this dumb idea out of your head pretending the govt is going to adopt Bitcoin as the 'world reserve currency'.  Govt's operate currency under the MO of seigniorage fee.  Meaning it costs 12 cents to make a $100 bill and they try to 'sell' the worthless bill to you for $99.88 profit.  They will do THE EXACT SAME THING in any digital shitcoin paradigm - create their own shitcoin out of thin air and try to force it onto you instead of going anywhere near Bitcoin because Bitcoin doesn't allow them to extract seignorage fee.  

This is also why it's FAR FAR more likely if people reject all govt fiat that they would go to physical metals as money over Bitcoin since the govt controls the land's resources and can mint up some silver and gold coins then slap a face value on them 50x higher than their cost of production to try and extract seigniorage fee that way.

Countries without tax on crypto

Malta
Portugal
Belarus
Panama
Puerto Rico
Singapore (individuals don't pay tax on profits from the crypto trading)
Slovenia (if you have less than 100 tradable days per year)
Germany (if you hold at least 1 year)
Liberland (very pro-bitcoin micro state)
Austria (if you hold at least 1 year)
Denmark is still taxless. It won't STAY that way, getting out while I can.

As a private person, non professional, prfits from monetary metals and BTC are taxfree in Belgium also. Even no need to declare as income.


How are they going to know that you are holding crypto if you do not publicly disclose your addresses? It's only possible if someone is willingly paying their tax and one should do so.

KYC. At some point most people have to get on a gateway to convert fiat to crypto and, at least in the developed countries, those are increasingly requiring stringent identification. Additionally there are some smart people that are already creating tools to track wallet movement and they can use a variety of techniques to tie those to people and groups. Basically, it wouldn't be smart to count on avoiding the taxman.

The taxman is not interested in our crypto holdings, because they are not taxable. That is why we do not need to declare anything. The legal concept is that we buy gold or crypto with already income taxed fiat.

But once you sell it for fiat, they are interested to tax your profit. At least in my country.

Same thing with me 1 year beforehand time has passed When the money is low and there are many problems around(Example: political problem, family problem, official problem etc.) the only thought is how to get profitable.

 Don't worry @Biodom expectation one day we are glad more than 2018 price.

The reason for that, argue Valerie Khan, VP of the Digital Equity Association, and Geoffrey Goodell, senior research associate at University College London's Centre for Blockchain Technologies, is that Facebook is interested not in finance but identity.
