Untied to any single government or country, Bitcoin is often labeled as a store of value asset and a hedge against other areas of finance. Nassim Taleb, a former risk analyst and author, nghĩ khác, Tuy nhiên.
In an interview with CNBC on Friday, after noting Bitcoin’s (BTC) similarity to a Ponzi scheme, Taleb said: “There’s no connection between inflation and the coin. None.”
Anh ấy nói thêm:
“I mean you can have hyperinflation and Bitcoin going to zero. There’s no link between them.”
This is not the first time Taleb has expressed skepticism toward Bitcoin. Đầu năm nay, he mentioned selling off his BTC holdings, claiming issues with its volatility. His stance, Tuy nhiên, was based on Bitcoin as a currency, not as a store of value — a role in which the asset has transitioned into over the years.
Taleb, Tuy nhiên, does seem to fully appreciate the technology behind BTC. “It’s a beautifully set up cryptographic system,” he told CNBC. “It’s well-made, but there’s absolutely no reason it should be linked to anything economic,”Anh ấy nói thêm.
“If you want to hedge against inflation, buy a piece of land. Grow, I don’t know, olives on it. Bạn biết, you’ll have olive oil, if the price collapses you’ll have something, but Bitcoin there’s no connection.”
He described the importance of owning cash-generating vehicles, and referred to Bitcoin as a gimmick. Taleb also made other comments on Bitcoin in the interview, including talking about currencies versus speculative assets.
Năm ngoái, Taleb referred to most Bitcoin advocates as idiots, citing their lack of knowledge on economic subjects.
