📊 Market Overview

Bitcoin's (governmental, institutional, widespread) adoption---or that of any exponential new tech:

"Gradually, then suddenly." - Ernest Hemingway

Argentina’s leading Presidential candidate–an economist by trade Javier Milei–came out a few evenings ago as pro-bitcoin. (In a country that has repeatedly had to turn to the IMF for assistance in resetting its economy--for cause of over a half dozen cases of hyperinflation since the 1970s), this may come as a very promising development for the Argentinian people.

Just last March 2022–as a condition of their most recent loan from the IMF–the Argentine Senate, Congress and Central Bank were required to curtail Argentine citizens' access to crypto, thus effectively blocking off any safe-haven exit from the hyperinflating peso to those--most!--who could not afford to store their wealth in tangible goods like stocks and real-estate).

Javier Milei said of Bitcoin: “It prevents politicians from robbing you through inflation”. Here, here! (...To renegotiating a more favourable deal for the Argentine people in 24-30 months.)

While the Bitcoin mining industry remains under duress, if the network hash rate is any indicator (high as it is); the world may be waking up to the inalienable properties of the world’s largest open computer network. Secular, uncensorable. And that to me sounds like a pretty solid start to 2023.

Have a great week friends–hope you’re stackin’ sats!

- Yours in the #hodl
