      A virtual currency is a tremendous "lure", it can crumble in an instant ... So working with it is NECESSARY, but VERY CAREFUL ...

        And it will be too late. I am not a financier and not a political scientist, but in my amateurish understanding there is only one stable currency, gold and equivalent precious metals.

          I agree. Moreover, now all this fuss with Bitcoin is reminiscent of the construction of a financial pyramid, but we all know that these pyramids will collapse sooner or later.

          By the way, neither financiers nor politicians understand the essence of the danger when using cryptocurrency. This can only be understood by psychoanalysts on the scale of social science .. There is no manipulation by an individual individual. and the manipulation of consciousness of significant human masses. This is the case when no one understands anything, but they trust those who advertise from above. Cryptocurrency can only make sense if the information data is completely preserved in a communication system of any level. Otherwise, all this is not yours or yours, but until someone has a desire to get into your pocket.

      I think that in our time, most countries issuing banknotes are a pyramid for their citizens.
      Of course, I am not a specialist in the field of economics and am ready to listen to smart people, but it seems to me that if the currency is a kind of “intellectual property” and “calculations”, but it is not provided: precious and rare-earth metals, securities, mineral resources, etc. the material component is not just a fiction, but a fiction squared.

      In the Middle Ages and earlier, money, in my humble opinion, was more valuable, because the coin was minted from pure gold, silver, even copper (albeit with impurities, okay), because it was real metal: buried in the garden, the great-grandchildren dug up, and he only became more valuable, like a good cognac. Previously, one “money” was equated to one cattle (sheep, cow, etc. livestock), and even in this case, “money” was provided!

      Money became a bubble after they came up with their paper equivalent. They say they were Chinese: http://i-fakt.ru/kto-izobrel-bumazhnye-dengi/, however, I allow myself to disagree with this, because had to manually fill out information on the amount. Those. it’s closer to the checkbook, each check of which is also provided! But the main impetus for paper money was given in Europe, according to the official version (C) "because of a lack of metal." Further, John Law, who proposed financial reform to many European countries, but was heard only in France, and from there went “fig fashion” to slap money on paper, gradually displacing money from precious metals from circulation: https://public.wikireading.ru/ 18860. This was superimposed on the crisis of gold mining from America and "went to write an office."

      To date, the North American dollar, which claims to be the world currency, is not backed up by anything other than the external debt of the United States (sarcasm, if that). Therefore, that dollars, that bitcoins - is the same bubble as the French "pieces of paper" of the Middle Ages (although, they just represent considerable antique value).

      The nervousness of many states is understandable: state-owned banks monopolized money and successfully through a mass of secured (and not very secured) pieces of paper affect the standard of living and the minds of citizens. Well, tell me, who can give a real estimate and correlate the number of pieces of paper on the market and their real value? Are there such objective criteria? (emphasis on the word "objective"). Well, it turns out that, if necessary, “there is no money, but you hold on! Health to you, happiness and other things,” and if necessary, we will find reserves (and turn on the machine). I’m not only talking about us, comrades, “cheers-patriots,” but about the system as a whole, on a global scale. So, what we have: a competitor appears on the money field, such as a “dark horse”, for whom you can buy something, sell something, but the number of these “horses” that peacefully walk through the territory of the state is uncontrollable. Hence the fuss: a real and uncontrollable competitor. No more!

      The whole essence of the banking system:
      (C) "John Law gave the following calculation: for example, a bank has 15 livres in a gold coin, and the bank printed 000 livres of notes, as it were, with gold. If no one knows about this, people will not rush to change their paper to gold. Because they trust the bank and the new coin. And the bank can give the "extra" 75 livres to entrepreneurs in the form of loans. They will run to expand their business and provide these same empty money with their products and services. The country's wealth will grow. But it will grow it’s not in gold, which is just conditional value (like paper money) and in itself no one needs, but in real consumer value - in goods that people really need. Brilliant!

      So, it seems to me that today, the financial system as a whole is a big bubble.

      Stop making payments in dollars (euros, yuan, Mongolian tugriks, Romanian lei) - and they will depreciate. (Isn’t it?) Stop mining the cue ball, creating a stir, and who will need them?

        While everything happens according to the formula D-T-D or T-D-T, everything is according to Karl Marx. But when the Formula of Relationships changes to D-D-D (credit relations), there is no room for creation. You can’t eat money. MMM definitely, only global scam
