BITCOIN FIXES THAT.


Only if you trade the crap fiat for bitcoin. Problem is it requires someone who will trade you bitcoins for crap fiat. Remember you can't just wave your hand and make more bitcoins by magical thinking.....

Never seen so much panic about most likely nothing too horrific



Hell, an average of ~102 Americans die every single day just in car accidents.

Exactly, and ~7 Americans die from falling down a stair every single day. 
About 2 a day drown in a swimming pool.
And lets not forget about all the fine Sackler products that kill ~118 people in the US each and every day. (1)

The wars kill too (especially having been there and returning home): 22 suicides of US army veterans in average per every day, roughly one per hour. (2)

If any of this is shocking to you, your personal risk assessment is terribly biased. For starters I highly recommend Dan Gardners "risk". (3)

(1) https://www.iii.org/node/32171
(2) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_military_veteran_suicide
(3) https://www.amazon.com/Risk-Science-Politics-Fear-Gardner/dp/0753515539/


I would also like to point out, that every single person that dies from (or with) a Corona infection is counted. But only people with serious health problems get tested and therefor counted, plus a few that come under suspicion from contacts they had.
Nobody knows how many people just had and eventually self-cured Corona in the last weeks, it's not like it's much different to regular flu - except being very mild. Ask yourself if you are going to inform the authorities when you feel like having the flu but are not in critical condition? I'd sit it out at home and don't tell anybody as I don't want to be quarantined. All these are then non-lethal infections that are not counted toward the recoveries and therefor giving a way to high lethality ratio. That leads me to conclude that while Corona is more contagious than seasonal flu atm, it is not as dangerous.

Wrt to the economy and markets it's a different thing. Extreme fear is appropriate there (hell, panic is even fine). That's the typical bespoken weak and ill patient catching a little cold that can kill him. Corona being the little cold for economy.

Now extrapolate to the entire world being infected. Cause that's the most likely scenario. Show us the numbers.

They ain't wearing bio-hazard suits for the past carnaval festivities...

I'm literally flabergasted when people think this is just a flu.

Just wait until the virus disrupts their own comfort zone realizing there is no vaccine available.

Current population of the US is 320 million. If 50% of the people get this in some way and the death count is 2% of all cases, then we're looking at about 3.2 million dead people. Let's see what it looks like in a year or so.

That's roughly the population size of Los Angeles. Or Houston + San Francisco. Or just the rude portion of New York City.

So, in practical terms, if this virus turns out to be fairly bad and continue at its current pace or worse...what do you think the practical implications will be?

More elderly people die earlier...so perhaps this gives a slight boost to the future economy as the costs of society caring for them goes down.

If China truly is severely affected at the factory level, we all may be stuck with our current computers/appliances/etc. and need to make sure we take care of our stuff since it may be difficult to get things for a while.

Our company is looking to other countries for our supplies...India or Vietnam. Any ideas on the best source for steel and fiberglass?

Paper fiat may face its death.

I am typing this from the interior of my mausoleum. I commissioned a stone keyboard too. If you start living like a dead person right now the chances are extremely high that you'll survive.

You know, from a marketing perspective, we should distribute the message that touching filthy fiat money is unwise now that we have the coronavirus going around. Buy Bitcoin. It wasn't touched by a sick person!

Can you imagine a gov't telling all it's citizens to stop using cash because of potential virus transfer, and instead use only crypto? Of course it would be a CBDC they'd direct everyone to use but still.

Social Security will be saved which is a good thing. Also given that Boomers were the only Demographic to go for Trump, their deaths will help the current political climate significantly. As I mentioned before: If the Corona czar mandates early voting next week in battleground states, you know it's going to be bad.

Very bullish for local businesses that can specailize in fixing appliances. Also good for the environment as less stuff will go to landfills.

Oddly enough, I might be a barometer for this: If people start looking to fix miners more instead of buying new ones I should be able to pick that up in requests. Hm.....

Bad. Say goodbye to anonymity. Ok, so this virus isn't 100% good news.

Spiro continued to advance the transparency of the blockchain as an advantage to regulators: “You’re going to see that transaction lifecycle. [...] As an investigator, you have a wallet address.”

An audience member who had believed that Bitcoin’s charm lay in its anonymity asked: “So that’s a myth?” Spiro affirmed, “That is a myth.”

Observing unusually sharp spikes in the price over short time scales. Smells like sloppy whales accumulating more than selloffs.

*FED CUTS BENCHMARK RATE 50 BPS, SAYS VIRUS POSES EVOLVING RISKS

wow!

Feels sad man. Isn't btc supposed to follow gold? Gold is +3% while btc is -1%.

This decision is the final nail on the FED's coffin. QE and low/negative interest rates forever.

Hm. Market is down 243 points. How odd after a half point "surprise" rate cut. Almost as if someone got an early dime on it over the weekend and did their buying yesterday.

But how could that happen?
