Bitcoin Magazine sometimes publishes magnificent thought-pieces on Bitcoin.  And, IMO, they have the winner of the year of most interesting pieces that I just finished reading.  I will re-read at my convenience again later today, and likely in some of the days to come.

Author Luke Mikic writes a comprehensive (and long) article with his thoughts about the US$, interest rates, and how the the FED may have another agenda, strengthening the US$ by working in tandem with Bitcoin to achieve hyperdollarization followed by hyperbitcoinization (this grossly oversimplifies his article).  Here is the link, below are some of my comments on what interested me the most in his piece,

https://bitcoinmagazine.com/markets/united-states-will-back-dollar-with-bitcoin

  • It looks like the Federal Reserve (FED) is not perfectly aligned with the other central banks, nor even with the BIS (somewhat like Tom Luongo's ideas about Wall Street NOT having the same interests as the WEF, Washington DC's policies, etc.)
  • Mikic thinks that the US$ and BTC are a great & complementary pair in maintaining the Amereica's strength, and other countries that dollarize and/or "bitcoinize" (my term there)
  • The FED is not onboard with all this Green Economy BS...  It's a waste of money and dictatorial
  • The FED is not onboard with "The Great Reset".
  • Mikic shows respected financial guru Ray Dalio's recent pivot from "cash is trash" to becoming a great believer in cash (US$ in CA$H)
  • The FED, by raising interest rates, is strengthening the US, despite making it harder for US exporters
  • Mikic writes that the US will eventually back, in one form or another, backing the US$ with BTC  [me: um, maybe, but...]
  • He resolves "Triffin's Dilemma" not by the USA using gold (China & Russia have LOTS of gold).  The FED will allow hyperdollarization (then perhaps bitcoinization)
  • The USA is already one of the world's friendliest bitcoin places, various politicians are working (at the state and lower levels) to be even moreso, this is GOOD.
  • Mikic notes that Gary Gensler has carefully not lumped BTC as the same as "crypto"........

Please note that I have only had one "pass" through the article, but Mikic covers a lot of ground and is chock-full of top-interest ideas.  I may have some of this wrong.  Nor I do not agree 100% with everything he presents, but I do believe he has written a piece that every thinking observer of BTC, the US$, the financial markets and even those interested in geopolitics would find of great interest.

I'm not sure that I can recommend this article highly enough for those wanting further food for thought.


EDIT: A bit more from Mikic, note he writes that BTC volatility will increase until it reaches very high prices:

"Despite what the consensus narrative is surrounding those who say, “Bitcoin’s volatility is decreasing because the institutions have arrived,” I strongly believe this is not a take rooted in reality. In a previous article written in late 2021 analyzing bitcoin’s adoption curve, I outlined why I believe the volatility of bitcoin will continue to increase from here as it travels through $500,000, $1 million and even $5 million per coin. I think bitcoin will still be too volatile to use as a true unit of account until it breaches eight figures in today’s dollars — or once it absorbs 30% of the world’s wealth."

(Image at link below shoes how China and Russia may have screwed the pooch by discouraging mining and BTC accumulation.  Hah)

I have found via long practice the properly trimmed and cared for bushes are the happiest most joyfull bushes around.

...

Does this one need a trim?



you have an identification error that is a pole that exhausted its self trying to tame a wild untamed and untrimmed bush. Its just resting and trying to recover to its full length to have another go at the untamed and untrimmed bush.

In fact it is in such a stupor it does not realize it needs to lie on the floor in order to strech back to full length. This often happens to younger poles rods trees that try to tame and trim bushes via brute force.

So, staying totally off topic now, i spent some hours testing my equipment and the DIY repaired telescope, cuz i finally had clear, moonless sky last night.
Focusing is a nightmare (very coarse) but on the other hand, slightly blurry results do have their own beauty to them. There's also some focus shifting, making images a little sharper at the top corners, while blurring out the lower regions little more. The focusing tube is definitely off-axis. Some more $ to be spent on this asap.
Here's a stack of 30 minutes of the great Orion Nebula (Messier 45 42 afair).

Enjoy  Grin

EDIT: This will be one of next winter's highlights, when the scope will be repaired, the sky will be dark and the air will be freezing cold.

Just wait a few months
pray for OOM's fingers
that they won't freeze off
