What happens to Bitcoin when countries switch to their own gold-backed cryptos?
Every country will have their own gold-backed crypto soon (in order to maintain their sovereignty and purchasing power), so where does that leave the current cryptos? I am not familiar with the reasons people invest in cryptos, but it looks like it's often a hedge against the financial system. I don't think people will see a need to hedge against the system if we have a system that is trustworthy and is better due to crypto technology. So my prediction is that interest in Bitcoin will slowly dwindle once this change to the financial system is made. I'm investing in silver due to the increasing demand over the next years for industrial purposes. A lot of mines have been put on hold around the world this year, so it's a great opportunity to get in now. Once the price is no longer suppressed by banks (think draining the swamp), silver's going to skyrocket.
Question regarding the viability of bitcoin in the long term. From my understanding, the security of bitcoin comes from miners who verify the blockchain. What happens when there is so much halving that the reward for mining bitcoin is extremely low and the cost of verifying the blockchain for the miners exceeds the reward of their bitcoin?
I recently started trading on Purse.io because I got some earning on mturk via a transcription work I did. But because I don't live in the US, I could only get earnings credited to my gift card balance on Amazon. Now after my first transaction on Purse, I moved my bitcoin to Paxful to get another card and go through the process again of earning on Purse again. But after reading the hefty risks associated with trading on Purse, including potentially getting your Amazon account blocked and potentially getting scammed out of your cash on Paxful, I decided it wasn't worth it so let me just convert my btc to fiat. Amount $100 From Purse to Paxful $2.20 From Paxful to Bitcoin.com wallet $5.30 From wallet to Skrill via bitpay: Bitcoin.com fee $3.8 Bitpay fee: $2.30 Skrill fee: 1% of incoming balance. So in total, I paid $13+ to transfer less than $70. ( I took a mandatory 37% discount hit on Purse.io per my earner level). So that makes it 18.5% transaction fees!!! Another thing I realized is that though I knew Bitcoin is volatile, I now experienced it firsthand where you could literally see the value of your money going up and down with every refresh of the webpage. With this, the only purpose Bitcoin will have for now is speculation and people like me who has no other choice. Though i believe my transaction wouldn't have been possible without Bitcoin (crypto), i don't believe in Bitcoin as a currency any longer for the level of fees and volatility associated with it. Alas, that $100 had been sitting in my gift card balance since 2017 so I guess it's better than nothing.
