uncool. In a consumer-driven society, money is usually only a short time on the account. Finally, the zero interest rate policy no longer leads to a creeping devaluation of Money, the saving is rewarded. Who has not consumed his hard-earned money directly, looking for profitable investment opportunities. To dismiss them out of Hand cycles, consequently, the formation of Boom-and-Bust. Because in the medium-term, a backlog of investments that will meet any demand for more. The plakativste example, for the formation of such investment, the real estate bubble in the United States, which triggered the 2008 global financial crisis was a bubble.

Alternative Bitcoin

Here Bitcoin comes into play. As a Sound Money, that is, from the market due to its features of selected money, the digital Gold an Alternative to the consumer society. Because Bitcoin save promotes. As a deflationary currency BTC rewards those who shift consumption or investment decisions in the future and a sustainable lifestyle to maintain. The economic science speaks of the so-called time preferences. Fiat money encourages people with high time preferences, hard money promotes economic agents with low time preferences.

This Narrative, however, is in stark contrast to the economic Mainstream, the suspects in a fall in the supply of money, the risk of a deflationary spiral. Empirically provable that, however, is not.

store of Value; Bitcoin

Bitcoin as hard money alternative to inflationary Fiat money has all the properties, the value of memory need. Above all, it is the scarcity of the offer, which makes Bitcoin a potentially interesting value memory.

This is likely to go back to Hodler, the Coins in the run-up is accumulated, and even in the bear market, not sold, to you have:

the expected Win, it would be foolish simply, his BTC for something as Mundane as a "Cup of coffee" to spend. Bitcoin is not PayPal. Because, as Dan Hero on Twitter, is the most important Use Case of the crypto-currency no 1 its store of value function.

the bottom line is that rising rates reflect the long-term this is a market economic need for money, can devalue no Central instance. The understood Hodler.
