Show 50: Base Money - Fiat, Gold, & Bitcoin

By Crypto Voices

Show support appreciated: 35iDYDYqRdN2x6KGcpdV2W1Hy3AjGje9oL Matthew & Fernando spend the entire show discussing one, important topic: *Base Money.* Bitcoin is unquestionably unlike anything else in the (financial) world. However, if you are going to try and compare Bitcoin's supply with other supply curves in the financial world, don't. The *only* money supply you can compare it to is fiat's "Monetary Base," or "Base Money." Firstly, something needs to be used as a medium of exchange to technically be called "money." Gold used to be. Fiat is now. Bitcoin very well could be. But don't get carried away. We need to compare bitcoin (and gold) to fiat's "base money" supply, and *only* to the base money supply. M1/M2/M3 and all others simply aren't comparable. Why? Because those supplies include "claims" on base money. Listen on to learn more.
