Karl is great. Love hearing from him always! I have an hypothesis. A hypothesis only, in the sense of a stab in the dark, based in pure speculation. (Pun alert.). Why are all certain of these financiers praising Bitcoin to the moon as “digital gold” etc etc, and in particular Bitcoin and not the more practical digital currencies, with Janet yellin among them, someone as you allude, who should be ideologically opposed to Bitcoin at every level? Because Bitcoin in its philosophical conception is a vote against confidence in the US financial system in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Could it be that Satishi Yakomota or whomever, or the coalition of people called Satishi Yakomota, or at least a high proportion thereof are X? Counter currents readers can fill in the variable X easily enough. If true, that would be something to think about when considering the long term value of Bitcoin. Im not sure what the precise impact would be, but it’s something to consider. The possibility of nepotism could explain the rise of Bitcoin.
