How to raise a couple trillion out of thin air or the financial pyramid of the millennium

The legendary digital "gold" - bitcoin - from a toy of crypto-banks and anarchists, back in 2010, suitable only for buying pizza (at the then rate of a couple of pizzas - 10.000 BTC), by 2013 had become a standard means of payment for a variety of goods disapproved by the state on all kinds of darknets. sites. By 2019 - into an instrument of speculation and accumulation.


By now, it has become a full-fledged and respected investment vehicle in the world of Wall Street and expensive suits, and its turnover exceeds the revenues of Amazon and Apple. In a word, bitcoin has become a tool in which even states are not ashamed to invest.

This article is not aimed at a technical analysis of its protocols and a description of the cryptocurrency economy in general. Equally, the goal is not to study its merits and demerits - there is a huge amount of such materials on the network. It offers a controversial point of view on the sharp and unexplained colossal jump in its value over the past year.

As we can see from the charts, the starting point is the end of autumn - the beginning of winter of 2020, when bitcoin began to grow sharply and inexplicably in price. The downturn in January 2021 is quite understandable (more on that below), then bitcoin (like ether and a couple of other cryptocurrencies) breaks through all imaginable ceilings, capitalizing on stratospheric amounts of trillions of dollars.

This is a very interesting fact, which is equally interestingly superimposed on the coronavirus epidemic and panic that has swept the world. All traditional means of investing money for this year have considerably sagged (I think everyone remembers that even oil for a short time acquired a negative value, and companies were almost ready to pay for its export), but useless zeros and ones of hashes on disks jumped like this as even Apple did not grow in the golden days of Steve Jobs.

Additionally, interest is fueled by the fact that bitcoin is a 100% intangible asset. It is not backed by anything at all and in any way - this is its difference from any traditional currency, which is provided at least by the economic growth of the issuing state. This can be clearly seen in the example of Russia and the United States: depending on the growth of the economy, the currency of a country becomes harder and more expensive - and this is logical.

Bitcoin, on the other hand, does not have an issuer as such (we will keep silent for now that more than half of the mining capacities are concentrated in China, this is a topic for a separate article) - and no one is responsible for it.

Basically, Bitcoin is backed by only one factor - the fact that it is being bought. And they buy it because it grows - and it grows because they buy it.

We've already seen this somewhere, haven't we? ..

But to pull oneself out of the swamp in the style of Baron Munchausen like this, an initial impetus was needed - the market had to spin up the scheme so that it could generate the money supply on its own.

So how did Bitcoin get such a huge boost in the worst investment year since the Great Depression? How from a "dark horse" for illegal money transactions, it became a legalized means of payment, under which they want to put ATMs in New York?

For a possible answer to this question, we need to turn to US monetary policy.

If you do not delve into the topic, the dominant economic ideology of the West since the early 1980s is the so-called "Chicago school", the most prominent thinker of which is considered to be the notorious Milton Friedman. It is the ideology of the Chicago school that underlies the practical strategy of overcoming the economic crises of the US Federal Reserve System.

What is its essence?

In short: any economic crisis arises from a growing imbalance between goods and money. It develops either into deflation (a textbook example is the crisis of overproduction and a massive drop in prices during the Great Depression), or into inflation (and that can develop into hyperinflation, a typical example is Weimar Germany, but the inhabitants of Russia will also remember the more familiar and close 90s ). There is also a third option - a monstrous mutant of stagflation (also familiar to us firsthand), combining an economic recession and a depressive state of the economy (stagnation and rising unemployment) with rising prices - inflation, but in general it can also be described in terms of an imbalance in production and money supply in handling.

A huge number of methods of dealing with such situations have been invented - from the socialism of President Roosevelt's "New Deal" to the release of prices and Gaidar's "shock therapy". However, not all of them ended with at least partial success ...

The Chicago school (again omitting numerous details) briefly offers this option: we see a crisis caused by a lack of finance - we pour more money into the economy, and everything is getting better thanks to the "invisible hand of the market" - you just need to push it a little. How does it look in practice?

For example, if such a method was used during the beginning of the Great Depression (the Fed was organized shortly before that in 1911 - it was later recalled for a long time that she had failed her first aptitude test in dealing with crises), then as soon as the people ran banks to cash out their stocks, bonds and all kinds of securities (in banks, of course, there was not enough money - this caused panic growing like a snowball, and the market collapsed completely, like a house of cards), the Fed had to immediately pour megatons of liquidity into the banks ( there are different ways for this, more on that below).

Then the banks would have resisted - and the market followed them.

We will not touch on the question of the rationality of such a strategy here (it is presented in a very simplified manner, and many generations of economists have broken so many copies here that it will be enough to ensure chivalry for the entire Hundred Years War) - we will only touch on how this can be done.

If we just turn on the printing press, then we will follow the path of Germany, Zimbabwe and Russia in the early 90s, when the currency, instead of injecting new forces into the economy, simply adds ballast to it. It just depreciates faster than it gets printed.

The Chicago school did not think so primitively - instead of the vulgar printing of money, they did much more subtle.

The process was launched - the affected banks began to receive loans, which poured liquidity into them through the sale of government bonds.

It is worth saying that this method can work brilliantly only in a situation where the state itself is world-famous as reliable and secured, paying on debts with interest (albeit tiny) and stable during crises. With Russia, this, alas, will not work - it publicly declared a default in 1998 and refused to pay all the bills - accordingly, we no longer have faith here.

But in the United States, this focus has been successfully working for a hundred years.

As a result, the Fed approached 2008 fully armed: it saved almost all precious banks and hedge funds that tried to play with the objective laws of supply and demand (using a massive mortgage pyramid) and lost to them to smithereens.

After that, the US economy was poisoned by millions of various derivatives, not backed by anything but word of honor, faith and hope of top managers for billions of dollars. However, the second Great Depression was averted. How? By stamping several trillion dollar public debt bonds (on the chart this is the point of the Great Recession in 2008) and, accordingly, injecting liquidity into the economy.

Then everything is simple - the bonds were thrown into the international market (in fairness, the United States has indeed been gradually paying interest on these bonds for a century now, so they are considered super reliable and are being actively bought) and, in general, the plan worked. The United States ran into even greater debts to the whole world, but saved its economy.

And then 2020 came. It turned out to be even more crisis - and again for man-made reasons, and mostly of a political nature.

The meaning of life of any politician in any country, which determines his modus operandi, is to be elected again and again.

For the United States, this is especially important - any elections they have, due to the peculiarities of the system, turn into real battles. A particularly luxurious titanomachy happened before our eyes just a few months ago: the unpopular populist Trump lost to the popular populist Biden - and this happened largely because of COVID-19.

Faced with a pandemic of the next version of SARS, several strategies could be chosen. It was possible to save the economy, like Sweden and Belarus, by abandoning quarantine measures. The economy could have been sacrificed in favor of populism.

At first, Trump tried to push through the first path, but the United States is not Scandinavia (where the people are generally apolitical and calm, and extremely trust the government) and not Belarus (where you can't mess with the president). In the United States, it is impossible to stay in power by swimming against the tide and pushing a point of view that is not held by the majority. As a result, in many ways, it was Trump's attempts to sit on two chairs - to save the economy and his chair, cost him both the loss of his chair and the failure in the economy.

Biden, on the other hand, gained popularity due to the fact that he immediately promised not socialist, but communist payments to all those affected by the epidemic - and mainly to the most marginalized segments of the population.

And then the main question arose - where to get the money?

Stamping dollars is not an option (hello 1920s Germany!). Stamping bonds like 2008? It will not work - bonds can only be sold during a growth period, and the economy of the whole world collapsed in 2020, and did not show any progress.

But the United States urgently needed trillions of liquid dollars, and then bitcoin enters the scene - finally we got to the main hero of the occasion ...

In 2016-2019, Bitcoin was still looked at very suspiciously: they were paid for drugs and weapon, speculated, sanctioned Iran, some muddy people from China and North Korea withdrew money in bitcoin ... In a word, it was quite problematic to trade it legally.

But a holy place is never empty: in the wake of cryptocurrency problems, the Bitfinex exchange platform (which at first denied everything, but you can't hide an sewn in a sack - this history unearthed in an array of materials related to the activities of companies registered in exotic offshore zones, published in early November 2017 following an investigation organized by the Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper) quickly organized Tether Limited in 2015.

It was registered, of course, offshore.

The company stamped a bunch of its own USDT (US Dollar Tether) tokens, each of which, by a willful decision of Tether, was equated in value to the dollar. Naturally, the company claimed that the tokens were secured and liquid, but there was no confirmation of this.

Affiliated with it, Bitfinex immediately began trading cryptocurrency for the above-mentioned tethers, taking all the difficulties of withdrawing bitcoin upon itself (tether was not a cryptocurrency, but a token of an officially registered company - it could be bought 100% legally and without any problems).

This is associated with the first jump in the value of bitcoin in 2017-2018: the cryptocurrency first became mass, it began to be actively traded, demand went up, and the price also went up. For this business, more and more teters were minted - and other exchanges, seeing the monstrous benefits of the process, poured into the game.

As a result, by 2019, 80% of cryptocurrencies were backed, but not by the dollar, but by an incomprehensible little thing in the form of the Tether token (which, of course, is equal to the dollar and is provided by the word of honor of the Caribbean offshore!).

By 2020, the pyramid scheme has reached its highest point: the voices of common sense began to be heard louder and louder. Serious crypto investors began to withdraw from bitcoin (despite the continuous hype and growth of the exchange rate), because they understood that no Tether Limited would have enough reserves to cover at least 10% of the current cryptocurrency capitalization in teters.

It was clear that everything was based on parole and could collapse at any moment. Note that in the summer of 2020, the United States covered Gram - the tokens of the famous Pavel Durov, because of which he got into debt for a couple of billion dollars and was even forced to make peace with Russia. So the situation with cryptocurrencies and tokens of private companies was very, very tense in autumn 2020 ...

As a result (this is where our little conspiracy thesis begins) the two loneliness found each other.

On the one hand, there was bitcoin with a capitalization of half a trillion dollars - monstrously overheated, unsecured, but not yet collapsed and in dire need of moral support from serious people who would guarantee it liquidity. And the Biden government, badly in need of an injection of a trillion or two (in any form!) Into a half-dead economy, in order to finally announce the long-awaited economic growth to the whole world.

And then close the year with a profit, in the best traditions of Friedman, issuing bonds for this business (and paying the promised money to his African American electorate, becoming famous as the saviors of America) ...

The culmination of the Bitcoin adventure was a US investigation that uncovered a monstrous financial pyramid around tethers.

“For 22 months, the New York State Attorney General's Office has been investigating the inadequacy of providing Tether with fiat currency and using the issue of coins to cover the financial losses incurred at Bitfinex. While Tether and Bitfinex are subsidiaries of iFinex, the root of the problem lies with the third-party company Crypto Capital. In 2018, the regulator expressed doubts about the security of Tether with US dollars, and the prosecutor's check was provoked by a loan to Bitfinex in the amount of $ 850 million. It was suggested that the necessary coins were simply reprinted. The relationship between Tether and Bitfinex was never advertised, however, Bitfinex was the first to list the token, and the subsequent crisis with Crypto Capital revealed a direct connection between the two crypto companies. With the growth in turnover, the Bitfinex crypto exchange needed a large and reliable financial operator, but in 2017 Wells Fargo bank refused to cooperate with it. Then the management turned to Crypto Capital, based in Panama. Due to the complexity of working with recognized financial institutions, Binance, Kraken and EXMO worked with Crypto Capital at the time. In 2018, Crypto Capital was accused of fraud and money laundering from drug cartels, and its accounts were arrested in Poland, the United States and Portugal. <...> Since Crypto Capital was the main payment aggregator for Bitfinex, $ 850 million of the crypto exchange were reserved on its accounts. The seizure of accounts caused an acute liquidity shortage, and the fate of Bitfinex was in jeopardy. To avoid the risk of bankruptcy, Bitfinex took the missing funds from Tether, but did so in secrecy, prompting a new wave of accusations. "

- M. Petkov. “Is Tether a dummy? History and results of the investigation ”.

As a result, the New York prosecutor's office, thanks to its conscientiousness (and the fact that they started it back in 2018, when no one thought that bitcoin would be useful), almost broke the financial scheme of the century for respected people.

This is the reason for the strange dip in the value of bitcoin in January 2021, when the results of the investigation were made public, which, in censorship terms, can be formulated as follows: Tether is not provided with anything, and Tether Limited is a pyramid.

But respected people quickly came to their senses, and now the verdict has already been announced - the Caribbean Mavrodi receive a monstrous fine in the form of ... $ 18,5 million and are required to provide quarterly reports on the degree of provision of tokens with US dollars over the past two years.

A report to them was instantly made by a neighboring firm from the Cayman Islands - respected offshore auditors Moore Cayman (which no one had ever heard of before). It said - we have all the money, we can give it our word of honor, we saw it ourselves. The failed bitcoin rate gets accelerated enough to go beyond the atmosphere, and its capitalization begins to grow.

And then the cherry on the cake - Elon Musk and Tesla begin to invest in cryptocurrencies with terrible force! And not only Musk - all the top companies, hedge funds and banks suddenly wake up and start pouring liquidity into bitcoin by tankers. Musk and company are not muddy Tether, since they take a couple of billions, it means that it is good business. Investors are catching up, and, finally, the coveted summit is taken.

Now, the total value of the mined bitcoins can be used to redeem "Apple" - and there will still be a piece of "Google" left.

Everyone wins: bitcoin gets the longed-for liquidity with the guarantee of respected people, respected people recursively receive a guarantee of economic growth through investments in a product that is growing by leaps and bounds. The economy is growing, bonds are being printed, the population is receiving payments, the throne is not shaken - everyone is happy.

The only problem is that this growth is still fictitious, and still lags behind the growth of commodity production. And we are beginning to see the fruits of the so-called latent inflation - an increase in prices for microelectronics by 2-3 times (including even the cheapest Chinese penny chips based on antediluvian technical processes), a shortage of high-tech components (and no, it is due to the fact that “miners bought all the cards ! ”- only partially) and even a wild rise in US cheese futures!

Given the unprecedented volume of money supply over the past year, we should expect wild commodity inflation that is not reflected in official statistics - but this, however, is a topic for a separate article.

    I read the article with great interest. Thank you very much for the interesting materials.
    But there is a nuance:

    Colleague, I'm sorry, but neither the Treasury reports nor the Fed data support your claim. On the contrary, the reports of these departments show a record emission of cash dollars to flood problems, especially in recent months.
    And the catastrophic shortage of money in the system (more than 4 trillion already at the beginning of 2021). And judging by the Treasury reports, the Fed, first of all, it is the machine that is launched.
    The United States took the simplest and most dead-end path.

              Stop hanging noodles. There are only 2 categories of state success - the average income of a citizen and his life expectancy. Average income at the African level. Life expectancy, current, and not "estimated age of survival" is also in the same place. And Pakistan and the DPRK also have nuclear weapons, anticipating the standard response.

                  Qatar is a rich and successful country, there is no point in citing figures. In China, the minimum salary is $ 386 or 29 rubles. Moreover, the minimum wage rises annually. The minimum wage in the Russian Federation is 000 12 rubles.

Once again, the raison d'être of the state is the social security of all citizens. 2 criteria for success - citizen's income and life expectancy. Not millions of tons of oil, coal or any other raw materials extracted. Not the amount of budget expenditures. Not the cost of yachts and football clubs.

        What do you want from the Russian ruble if ruble so-called "Markets" pegged to the US dollar even under Gorbachev ?! (And also currencies of all and other countries.) The Central Bank of Russia is essentially a branch of the IMF and the World Bank, which are instruments of the US Federal Reserve.
        Those. if the USSR / RF were dollarized as a result of the so-called. "market" reforms "under Gorbachev-Yeltsin ?!

        First, on January 22, 1991, President of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev signed a decree on the withdrawal from circulation and exchange of 50- and 100-ruble bills of the 1961 sample.
        The reform allegedly pursued the goal of getting rid of the excess money supply in cash circulation, and at least partially solving the problem of the deficit in the USSR commodity market ...
        And where did the shortage on the USSR commodity market come from? In connection with the departure from socialist construction to the prototype of capitalist relations - to self-financing.
        The USSR under Stalin had its own economy. Planned housekeeping. But under Khrushchev, the famous "Kosygin reforms", capitalist concepts were introduced - capital intensity. Which actually led to a disastrous result.
        Andropov supported the idea of ​​cost-accounting, and Gorbachev completed it with the initial accumulation of capital in the interests of the commodity mafia formed in the country. Inflation in the country grew due to an artificial shortage of goods and unused money in the hands of citizens who had nothing to spend on.
        Then on December 20, 1991, the State Bank of the USSR was abolished. All assets, liabilities and property of the State Bank of the USSR on the territory of the RSFSR were transferred to the Central Bank of the Russian Federation. A few months later, the Central Bank of the RSFSR (Bank of Russia) was renamed the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (Bank of Russia).
        The very first version of the law "On the Central Bank of the RSFSR (Bank of Russia)" was adopted on December 2, 1990, after the summer of 1990 B.N. Yeltsin won the elections by a huge margin and became the first president of Russia, and after six months of his presidency, he signed Federal Law No. 02.12.1990-394 of 1. The law was modified and supplemented, but on the whole its essence was preserved.
        The betrayal of the national sovereignty of the Russian Federation in the field of finance was laid down and reinforced in its very Constitution of the Russian Federation of December 12 1993, which was compiled under the EBN under the patronage of Washington.
        Officially sponsored by this the colonial Constitution of the Russian Federation of 1993 were: Sergei Shakhrai, Anatoly Sobchak, Alekseev Sergei Sergeevich and the Constitutional Conference of the Russian Federation.

        The Constitution of the Russian Federation of 1993 only consolidated the COLONIAL position of the Russian Federation in this matter.
        As a result, we have in the country there is COLONIAL legislation, which, it seems, is impossible under the comprador power to be canceled in any way by peaceful means.

          There is no bread, but Tesla - yes. The opposite is also true - whoever has money only for bread does not buy Tesla. What is the point of trading bread for bitcoins if there are almost no cryptocurrency holders in the queue for bread?

          The function of bitcoins is different. This is, first of all, an advanced method of transferring money (anywhere, across any borders), preserving it (no one can take it away) and confidentiality (no one knows whose crypto wallet). And that is why this is used by criminals of all stripes and malicious corrupt officials. Now big people are technically advanced, they accept all bribes in cue ball. Any governor or an official sitting on financial flows has a crypto wallet that you never dreamed of.

    Good day, dear nnm!

    Unfortunately, I could not continue the description of the process, because has exhausted the article volume limit)

    The processes you mentioned, of course, take place and have an explanation within the framework of the described material: speculation in bitcoin and bonds allowed formally pulling the economy out of the hole and showing its "growth". At the same time, there is no more money in the system - as you understand, all these frauds are pouring from empty to empty.

    This is where the third part of the plan comes in - the printing press is launched to tame the shortage of goods.

    If they did this in Summer / Fall 2020, they would have dropped the dollar hard. And so everything is fine - now the economy is skewed in the other direction and money can be poured into it. Taking into account the wild rise in prices, this will not really affect anything - on the contrary, it will balance.

    Essentially, bitcoin provided the US with capitalization for the later thrown in money supply.

        As a small insert, we can assume that the financial hegemony of the United States was created artificially by the same people who today are trying to make the world believe in bitcoin. Unfortunately, at the right time, neither food nor water can be bought even for gold bars. It happened before. Only the gradual accustoming of people to "luxury" allows such manipulations. A state capable of creating final products (goods) without the participation of intermediaries, dollars and bitcoins, is worthless.

      Well, and, probably, it should be added that the rate on the crypt is associated not only with problems in fiat, but also with the emerging virtual world. Its "values" also need to be digitized. And there is an unplowed field. And we also need to somewhere to distill the surplus of monetary mass from crumbling financial instruments based on the value of real assets, which in the context of the contraction of the world economy cease to work. For all this, cryptocurrencies, the price of which is not tied to anything, is a very convenient tool. Therefore, I think, in the next five years, the crypt will only grow, as will the scale of its use.

                      Now I would like to recall a record ten years ago, when the system was far from perfect. For example, similar news from 2012 about Sberbank:
                      "The court sentenced Alexey Zlobin to three years in prison for spending 2 million rubles, which were mistakenly transferred to his card. The bank error cost the Sberbank client three years in prison."

                        In Russia, there was one who was transferred to the account of 158 million, and he used this money for six months and drained almost everything - he is still sitting and still sticking out the bank.

    The crypto barge has taken place. Its capitalization is only growing. This is a kind of vacuum cleaner that sucks out excess money from the market for subsequent disposal by burning one or another crypto. This is on the one hand. In general, crypto is the currency of the future, the currency of agglomerations into which the world is already divided. State transnational corporations have become a hindrance, so they will be replaced by agglomerations with supranational laws and their own crypto currency.

      So far, this is the fulfillment of the millennial dreams of counterfeiters - the ability to print their "money" with impunity regardless of the state. And this always led to the collapse of those states that allowed it on their territory. All this is more like the actions of globalists aimed at completely crushing the very foundations of the state.

    Nuuu, the cue ball is also interesting in that it is possible to make transnational payments without the attention of the fiscal authorities. In a situation when the nuts in the banking system around the world are cheerfully tightening, this is an extremely useful thing.

    Ruslan Karmanov says that the popularity of the cue ball is largely due to the illegal export of capital from China. And considering what mining capacities are deployed there, this is very similar to the truth.

    And the fact that Navalny was financed with the same cue ball. This is certainly a trifle, but indicative. That is, if you need to crank up some kind of financial dregs, then the cue ball is a very useful tool. And what will never be lacking is financial dregs. Therefore, the cue ball will definitely not suffer from a lack of popularity.

        But investing in the cue ball for a long time is also a game of roulette.
        Personally, it seems to me that the price of the cue ball depends on how much money is being pumped through it at the moment. If there is a lot, the price goes up. If the activity falls, the price also falls.
        Simply because the big players won't keep their funds in the cue ball - they're not exactly dumb. We bought a cue ball, pumped it "over the river", behind the river the cue ball was quickly cashed out until the price of the cue ball collapsed. The deed is done, we drink champagne for the health of the tax office.

    Well, everything is according to the classics of the pyramids - those who entered on time receive a margin at the expense of those who entered the wrong time. The advantages of the cue ball over any classical pyramid are that the cue ball is generated not just from the air, but from some intangible useful activity - the provision of computing power by miners (as far as I understand). That, in comparison with the classical pyramid, allows you to involve much more people and organizations in the movement than actually participate in it, allow them to extract some intangible or limited material profit from this activity and through this moment contribute to the expansion of the ranks of participants necessary for the functioning of the pyramid.
    All this movement is extremely beneficial for a number of manufacturers - manufacturers of video cards and chips for them, related industries.
    In a sense, all this activity has a positive effect on the development of progress, both through the provision of bases for calculating something, and through the economic stimulation of the development of microelectronics and the expansion of the generation of energy efficiency.

    T.N. "laws of self-regulation of the market" is an extremely voluminous concept.
    They called Putin an unsubstantiated murderer - the ruble sank. Musk's global PR leads to a fierce demand for Tesla securities, and as a result, the capitalization of an automobile company, which produces 0,5% of the car market, is the highest among automakers. Equal to Sberu, etc.
    The cost of solar panels Musk has jumped several times (economic feasibility is lower) - fluctuations in the price of securities, solved in the short term.
    In Turkey, the founder and operator of the cryptocurrency fled the country, blocking access to wallets - the fall of the lira is increasing. Stock market bubbles continue to grow as production and consumption fall.
    There are 2 market rules:
    - the price rises while the demand is high (supply / demand);
    - forced correlation of rates is inevitable. Here "parachute money" issued to the US population is unlikely to be enough (a significant part of it went to stock exchanges).
    Bubbles burst when they reach a certain size. This is physics, this is economics.

    there are only two nuances
    1) Peter Thiel and Elon Musk have been playing bitcoin since about 14th year, just not so clearly and not in such amounts as recently, which is very similar to their affiliation with the project.
    2) during the life of Steve Jobs, the cost of Apple certainly grew, but within the limits of the equivalence of the capitalization of the motorola, for example, it never exceeded the cost of the flagships of the technological and telecommunications market like Verizon, AT&T and Google. and only after the death of Jobs did the shares go into an endless speculative flight and now it is more expedient investment to heat the stove with dollars than buying Apple shares.
    After all, even in terms of the number of real products on the computer market, the production indicators of Apple are, on average, three times more modest than those of the flagships of Lenovo, Dell or NR. and although Apple is the leader in the mobile device market, the absence of fundamental innovative products shows the real state of affairs for the Apple brand. culmination with pumping up the value of shares before a massive sale of their gullible buratins with a subsequent return to real value with a drop of 10 times, at least, although this process can be delayed even for a decade - the trend has already been outlined). so it is not Bitcoin alone that is rich in the financial bubble of the US economy. although, yes, many top financiers openly call the crypt a financial pyramid.

    There is a suspicion that all cryptocoins unattached to the Central Bank were created simply to protect the dollar mass. Now the world banking union is forced to paint zeros in a fire order to rescue the markets of "developed countries" and continue consumption, "as if not in itself." At the same time, a canopy of a couple of tens of trillions was created, which threaten to disperse hyperinflation in dollars and other proxies. To stop this it is necessary at some point to "burn" a significant part of this canopy, and ideally the whole. Tricky unicoms came up with cryptomass with the task of accumulating "extra" money in it. And when the capitalization of "dogoins" reaches at least $ 10 trillion, everything can be turned into a pumpkin with one decision - to declare USDt illegal and ban it. Everything. Everybody's Free.

That is, it is not created for nothing, but resources, real physical and material, are wasted. And now, thanks to the injections of the mask, hedge funds, it has a justification in the form of a green piece of paper, and until it collapses with the cue ball, nothing will happen.

    EU allows dried mealworms to be eaten

    Mealworm snack

    The larvae of the large flour beetle became the first insect allowed for food in the EU. The European Commission sees insect products as a chance to move towards a more sustainable food system.
    Dried mealworms, the larval form of the large mealworm, are legal in the European Union. The EU member states approved the relevant proposal of the European Commission on Tuesday, May 4. Insects are an alternative source of protein that can support the EU's transition to a more sustainable food system, the European Commission said.

    May cause allergies

    The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recognized these worms as edible in mid-January - as a whole larva as a snack or as a powder as an ingredient in a number of foods. However, the German Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) warned that the consumption of mealworms "can cause allergic reactions in sensitive people", so the packaging should be indicated accordingly.

    The French company Agronutris has applied for permission to eat the larvae. The EU decision allows it to be the only supplier of products containing these insects for 5 years. Then the market will be open to other players.

The oil bubble, like all resource bubbles, is inflated to the stop, you cannot inflate it at times, you cannot hide a dozen trillions. Shares have long been quoted not based on earnings per share, but on the mythical cost of the campaign. And it is necessary to dispose of this mountain of money.
    And suddenly, cryptocurrencies climbed up, plus there was also a shortage for electronics, prices increased by 30-40 percent, not counting video cards, which increased significantly.
    For two or three years, the life of the golden billion has improved. And then it will be necessary to plunder some kind of state from a dozen, and to plunder thoroughly. So that the current system could exist for another twenty or thirty years.

      The state does not need alternative $ instruments. And for this reason, when calculating for export deliveries, Russia more often refuses the dollar by switching to national currencies, and also reduces the share of the dollar in foreign investments and gold reserves. "Several people have already disappeared in Moscow, some have become disabled." - In isolated cases, hundreds of thousands of people are mining crypto in Russia.

            The Euro also depends on the Dollar, and so far the EU is more stable than the US and therefore the Euro is growing.

    "It is necessary to constantly increase emission volumes. This is emission! That is, printing money. It does not matter how it is formalized. In retrospect, you can always think of it. The bottom line is simple: if you do not throw money into the economy, it is a disaster",

    “Biden in this sense differs greatly from Trump, since Trump tried to support the real sector of the American economy with emission money, and Biden supports the financial one. Therefore, Trump did everything more efficiently in terms of using this emission money. But the end result is the same: inflation of financial bubbles, ”

    Earlier, US President Joe Biden signed a new stimulus package for the US economy approved by the US Congress. The program amounted to $ 1,9 trillion and includes direct one-time payments of $ 1,4 thousand for the majority of US citizens, as well as tax incentives for millions of families in the country. "(C)
    Mikhail Khazin.
    -------
    So, we do not know what Biden talked about with Putin. But there was a moment in Putin's own speech on May 9 that could be interpreted as a response to one of the proposals. Moreover, after this conversation, both Biden and his Secretary of State Blinken spoke about the need to normalize relations without stopping pressure on Russia on issues important to the United States. Biden even praised Putin's speech at the environmental summit. And I do not exclude that Biden hinted to Putin that in the conditions of the difficulties that have developed for Russia, the United States needs to be friends. And, apparently, to make his words more convincing, he began to organize an active run over Russia and Putin personally by his jackals from Eastern Europe. And in the same style as England a few years ago, that is, in the complete absence of objective grounds.
    And in this sense, the moment of Putin's speech is extremely interesting, in which he spoke about the loneliness of Russia at the first, most difficult and main stage of the Great Patriotic War. For several reasons at once.
    The first is already mentioned, since it can be interpreted as a response to offers of friendship. And the meaning of this answer is clear: demonstrate what our benefit is from this friendship, and then it will speak. In the meantime, your proposals resemble blackmail.
    Second. It is possible that the friendship proposal was in the "stop being friends with China" logic. Then, it would seem, the words about loneliness could be interpreted as addressed to China. But China has already answered, so the scope for interpretation is sharply reduced. This is most likely the answer to Biden.
    Third. Putin actually invited Biden to play the game "every man for himself" (only Russia and China).

    A very interesting and competent discussion, I started to understand at least a little. There is nothing to invest, but it’s a bit of a shame that someone is pumping by.
    I will try to summarize for myself.
    The bitcoin system is not profitable for the "owners of money" for permanent use, because it works past their pockets.
    However, they also benefit from this system temporarily.
    Also, crypt systems are beneficial as temporary, as they rightly write here, for future bankruptcy and write-off of tens of trillions of greenbacks.
    Then just ban it, and cash too.
    Well, you know what for.

    To date, they have already mined 18.5 million.

              We need power for the network to work. Someone has to process transactions, and no one will do this for free.
              And the big question is about the cost of transactions.
              Already, they are about $ 50.
              If you transfer 5000 + $ - is it tolerable, but if you transfer $ 200-300?
              By the way (from my own observations), as a means of transferring money, one of the most convenient is Ripple. Cheap, fast.

    Mining schmining. If there is an opportunity to make money by pumping money out of thin air. why not? Especially now, when the ether is growing by leaps and bounds. All this crap will last another two or three years, at least, and maybe more. The investment pays off in six months. If everything collapses, vidyuhi can be sold for half the price and not be left behind.

    Laugh? Feel sorry for the author? I don’t know how to react to all this. But it's funny, yes) Author ... Well, why are you so "literate"? However, this is a rewrite of some Polish article, right?

    In general, the matter is as follows. It has long been established that the capitalist economy can exist only and exclusively when the share of "black", unaccounted for and tax-free money in it is at least 25%. A capitalist economy thrives when the share of that kind of money in it is at least 40%. This is how the United States became a vacuum cleaner of benefits for the whole world, sucking on itself about half of the world's resources, paying for them with a loosely controlled money supply.
    However, the United States itself cut a bough under itself, starting to persecute its political opponents and economic competitors with the help of accusations and monstrous fines for "money laundering". Capitalist economies were left without venture capital and "black" remuneration paid to the locomotives of the economy - people and firms that organize production spitting on all laws and regulations, but at the same time as efficiently as possible. This is what makes capitalism exist at all ...
    So that's it. Bitcoin is the very "black" money. The existence of capitalism without them is absolutely impossible. All the chatter in the article about why bitcoin has grown (and will continue to grow) is non-objective chatter in the style of the HSE - it seems to a person that he has acquired knowledge, but in fact he was fooled and raped. Be careful with this kind of "knowledge" ...

      One amendment.
      This so-called, allegedly "capitalism" cannot, as they say, "not expand," in other words, it cannot eat someone (Gaddafi, Kussein, CIS, Africa, South America), and when there is especially no one to eat, rats eat each other and sacrifice something. Bitcoin will be inflated, expropriated, then they will inflate the "most honest" - "three-coin". In this sense, there is no difference with the dollar or any money when scammers play with the system.
      That is, it is correct to say that this system cannot be done not only without black money, but in general can not without all kinds of fraud and crime.
      In critical cases, this criminal capitalism is strained, and we hear the names Stalin, de Gaulle, Kennedy, Gaddafi.
      This capitalism is run by bandits.
      Amazing cryptocurrency? They will invent devices for determining the addresses of agents, puncture the address, liquidate. Introduce laws against crypt under the pretext of terrorism. They will expropriate, launch new projects of "honest" money.

          Yes, you understand) No matter how you create electronic candy wrappers, they will not be CRYPTO. Nobody, and this is completely natural, will believe that states will not monitor their own electronic currencies. Therefore, these pacifiers are not needed by anyone and will never be needed. All this will be absolutely no different from the current situation, and the idiotic projects of "state cryptocurrencies" are just another way to get out of the budget. For a while, the states will try to force users to use "new tools", but there is no particular sense in this, it will not work.

        They will not expropriate it. There is no need. He is already extremely comfortable and badly needed. For an attempt to invent "devices" inventors will be found and killed. Criminal is not a definition for capitalism. He, in general, cannot be criminal, because under that social system it is the capitalists who write the laws.
        It's easier to ambush, and, at the same time, more difficult. The question is how to effectively make a project? The first option is to give it to the will of the elements. Let anyone do what they want, and we'll just wait for what comes out. And the second - let's act according to the project and plan. We will select leaders, recruit VET, test the performers and direct their work ... Well, here's capitalism and, accordingly, socialism.
        In principle, capitalism cannot solve the problem of managing the economy correctly. Spontaneously complex tasks can only be attempted by a complete ... that ... the site will not miss. If the USSR had a failure, any management specialist will tell you that the problems are not in the project itself, but in poor-quality management of it. Simply put, the bosses were chosen shitty. So they flunked the project. But spontaneous body movements from this still cannot become the correct way of action!
        How does capitalism exist? And on fuel from human greed. For solving a local problem effectively, individuals manage to get a lot of money. So they are trying. Only one person cannot solve the problem completely correctly, especially not in a capitalist environment. Local victories simply prolong the agony.
        But for such victories, fundamentally uncontrolled money is needed! So that the next "solver" could grab a lot, and he didn't get anything for it! That's what bitcoin is for. You can whip out money from anywhere, and bitcoin will clear it. This is not theft, this is cleaning, and the cleaning is super effective. That's what you need ...

    My humble opinion is that the article is good, thank you, topical. It seems to me that the legs grow from famous persons. We need an anchor face value for the inflated and devalued stock exchange. Gold is not suitable - no matter how much you control its price, the yellow metal stubbornly works against the dollar, so they came up with a completely speculative instrument. I don't know what exactly will happen to cryptocurrency, but the fact is that it is a tried-and-true instrument of the future, supported at the highest level ...

    And can you buy the same bread in the nearest store for bitcoins?))

    There is no bread, but Tesla - yes. The opposite is also true - whoever has money only for bread does not buy Tesla. What is the point of trading bread for bitcoins if there are almost no cryptocurrency holders in the queue for bread?

    The function of bitcoins is different. This is, first of all, an advanced method of transferring money (anywhere, across any borders), preserving it (no one can take it away) and confidentiality (no one knows whose crypto wallet). And that is why this is used by criminals of all stripes and malicious corrupt officials. Now big people are technically advanced, they accept all bribes in cue ball. Any governor or an official sitting on financial flows has a crypto wallet that you never dreamed of.

    Yes, and if you are already so impatient with bread for the crypt, then I can help you with this difficulty! Buy?)))

    A bit wrong ... As a way of transferring money with cue ball, so-so. Slow transaction confirmation, limited block size (accordingly, a limited number of transactions in one block), as a result, high fees, and with a tendency to constantly increase. And as a means of anonymizing a transfer, bitcoin is not at all, all transactions are perfectly tracked and, if desired, de-anonymized.
    Bitcoin chip in its global acceptance as a store of accumulation and speculation. Well, you can also cut plebs with it quite well.

    The most interesting thing is that now everyone wants to make money out of thin air. You can do them, but for the time being. Until the time when the last "dreamers" take the whole burden of the law of conservation of energy upon themselves. But this is all philosophical reasoning, it has always been and will be so, nothing can be done about it.
