Time: Bitcoin Values Could Triple Under Donald Trump
« on: December 07, 2016, 03:59:47 PM »
Alternative currencies may benefit from "economic chaos."

Bitcoin has been described as a “scam,” and not a real currency. “Bitcoin isn’t an investment, it’s a slot machine. Or, more accurately, a loaded roulette wheel,” Jeffrey Robinson, the author of Bitcon: The Naked Truth About Bitcoin, said in 2014.

The economist Paul Krugman has taken criticism of bitcoin to the next level, describing the unregulated digital currency as simply “evil.”

Even bitcoin defenders cannot claim that the cryptocurrency created in 2008 is stable. At the start of 2014, one unit of bitcoin was worth $770, down from an all-time high of around $1,000 in late fall 2013. By October 2014, bitcoin’s value had dropped below $300.

So take all of the above into consideration before making any decisions related to the latest speculation that bitcoin’s value is about to surge. As of early December 2016, according to CoinDesk, a unit of bitcoin is trading for around $760, up from $400 at the start of the year. And some are calling for the value of bitcoin to skyrocket further.

As CNBC reported, a new report from the Danish firm Saxo Bank states that the expected spending binge by the Trump administration will cause “U.S. growth and inflation to sky rocket, forcing the Federal Reserve to accelerate its hikes and the USD dollar to hit the moon.” As a result, Russia, China, and other emerging markets will be more likely to shift away from mainstream banking systems and seek out alternative forms of currency. “Bitcoin as the face of cryptocurrencies benefits from this chaos,” Saxo Bank researchers explain. “We could see Bitcoin easily triple over the next year going from the current $700 level to +$2,100.”
