You are claiming that if the U.S. dollar collapses then so would Bitcoin. Your claim is unfounded.


What ae you going to exchange it for? Colored rocks or shells?

Crypto could be the failsafe for a global financial meltdown.

National currencies becomes useless because they're backed by nothing and everyone flocks to bitcoin because there's a finite decentralized supply


Bitcoin is pegged to the dollar and if the dollar collapses Bitcoin is pegged to nothing.


Bitcoin is pegged to the energy it took to mine the coins.


Then why is the price shown in fiat currency?

You gonna mine some toilet paper and frozen pizza?

That shows how many U.S. dollars Bitcoin is worth. I can show you how many dollars the euro is worth in dollars also.

A finite amount of crypto means the value of the coins is based on demand and nothing more. One coin was originally worth about $10. Not its around $61,000. When they are all mined the price will be higher. But you will still be able to transact fractions of a coin in pretty much whatever dollar amount you choose. There will be a point when the transaction fees make smaller value exchanges less attractive, but that isn't much different than spending $10 to get a $5 cashiers check. Its not worth it.


Except you dont spend $10 to get a $5 cashiers check. You pay a percentage of the amount youre requesting, and that fee is usually capped.

Yall are fkn nuts.

If you cant see that cryptos like bitcoin and ethereum do the exact opposite of their supposed benefits, you deserve whats coming.


Wrong again. The fee for a cashiers check is either a flat rate or a percentage, whichever is higher. The price is usually $10-$15 dollars. If the percentage is too low the flat rate kicks in. If you had to, you could get a cashiers check that would cost you more than it was worth face value. For people who absolutely have to have a cashiers check this is a reality.

You shouldn't speak in such absolute, especially considering how often you are wrong.

What exactly are there supposed benefits and what exactly are they doing that is the exact opposite? Its easy to throw meaningless generalities around. Please be precise and exact in your descriptions so we can all benefit from your obviously in-depth understanding of all things crypto.

Years ago people were making a living playing MMO's and selling in-game articles for real world currency. The game world economy merged with the real world economy and many people made a good bit of money.

Now the metaverse is emerging and people are making money there too with crypto currency. Crypto, like any other currency, has exchange rates for other currencies. That is not unique nor is it a sign of weakness. It is simple common sense.

Some people struggle with the idea of buying something that doesn't physically exist. If that is how you feel, don't buy it. But also don't cry when you get left behind. There are a whole lot of millionaires out there who wouldn't be were it not for crypto. The fiat currency you use is just as unreal as crypto coin. US dollars are not backed by anything. Their value depends entirely on the belief that they will continue to be in demand in the future. That will eventually change.

Oh see, now you're starting to get it...

Bitcoin isn't worth a damn thing if there isn't a fiat currency to put a value on it.

Unless you're going to mine some toilet paper with 20 graphics cards.

No.

The percentage goes up to the flat rate.

The same way it does with money orders and western union wire transfers.

And wouldn't you know it? My bank doesn't charge a fee at all. Go figure.

Lol. We're not being "left behind."

We're just not stupid enough to waste money on things that don't exist.

I invest in tangible assets, things that you can touch. Real estate isn’t called “real” for no reason. Classic/muscle cars and ww2 warbirds fetch premium in toy money.

Once you select your product and go to buy you can then select your means of payment. It will then be priced in bitcoin.

The question was can I buy toilet paper with bitcoin and the answer is yes. Don't move the goal posts.
