Buy Bitcoin not Gold- Mike Novogratz

Michael Novogratz is a veteran Wall Street fund manager and cryptocurrency maven who readily acknowledges when he earns a “black eye,” while Dave Portnoy is the brash founder of a media empire who only recently began touting stocks and has disparaged Warren Buffett.
Their backgrounds and personalities may be vastly different, but both are now offering the same investment recommendation: Bitcoin is a better long-term bet than gold.
In an appearance on Bloomberg Television, Novogratz — founder of Galaxy Digital Holdings Ltd. — said that although he sees gold climbing above its record highs, Bitcoin is still the more worthy investment because it’s “harder to buy” than the traditional haven. He said about 25% of his net worth is tied up in the cryptocurrency.
“It’s only got a $20 billion market cap, while gold is over $10 trillion,” Novogratz said of Bitcoin. “So it’s got a long way to go to catch gold in terms of just adoption.” Still, he doesn’t recommend beginners put in more than 1-2% of their money into the digital currency.
Novogratz said Bitcoin had “crossed the Rubicon” on the question of whether it’s a good store of value. Now, more institutions and banks are considering how to get into the cryptocurrency, compared with a few years earlier when they viewed it more skeptically, he said.
Barstool Sports founder Portnoy, meanwhile, was sold on the cryptocurrency after being pitched by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. In a video posted on Portnoy’s Twitter feed, the twin brothers — who founded crypto exchange Gemini Trust — say Bitcoin has the potential to replace gold as a store of value. Their reasoning? They claim that Elon Musk has plans to mine gold from asteroids.

In a tweet after his interview with the Winklevoss twins, Portnoy suggested he has bought $1 million worth of Bitcoin.
Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, has been on a roller coaster in 2020. After sliding below $4,000, it’s zoomed up and is around $11,800. It’s seen further acceptance in the mainstream investment community, experienced a “halving” where the rate of Bitcoin created dropped by 50% as of May, and seen correlations with gold rise to records.
In the case of bullion, prices have been on a tear this year as central banks worldwide took steps to shore up ailing economies in the wake of the coronavirus crisis and investors sought a haven from the turmoil. The precious metal is up 28% this year to about $1,945, with Credit Suisse Group raising its bullion forecast for next year to $2,500 due to a “perfect storm” of factors.

[Serious] ELI 5 - Fundamental difference between Bitcoin and Dogecoin

It has become more than clear that the two leading crypto projects are struggling to keep the promise of low fees that was once a fundamental expectation of cryptocurrency as a whole.
The recent price spikes in BTC and ETH have driven fees up by a lot and there isn't a clear solution in sight. Putting ETH on the side and looking at BTC I just can't find a single advantage that it has over Dogecoin. Yes, many of you will mention the fixed supply but you should know that there are some of us that don't find that feature very interesting. One major issue with it is that the rich will only get richer and those that get on the train last will be able to get bits and pieces of a status symbol for the wealthy. In simple terms, Bitcoin incentivizes early adoption and those that can truly "adopt" it right now are those that have the most money. Winklevoss twins have stated that they own 1% of the supply, just to name a few.
Community-wise, Dogecoin is outperforming BTC by a lot because there is no such thing as a Doge maxi while a BTC maxi will bash anything and everything that isn't BItcoin.
When it comes to transactions, Doge is fast, very reliable, and super cheap. I know it is not the fastest one out there but it certainly has the largest community which gives me even more faith in this "project".
Bottom line, I need a rational explanation of why I would purchase Bitcoin over Dogecoin in technical terms?
What advantage does it have except the fixed supply?
Are there any fundamentals that I am missing or is the "internet gold" narrative good enough for everyone invested in BTC.

Cryptocurrency Books You Must Read

Cryptocurrency Books You Must Read
When you go out into Internet space to look for some information on the crypto world, you may end up being confused and baffled. Suddenly, everyone’s an expert and each has something to say about it. Without a basic knowledge of the technology, your lack of knowledge may backfire on you one day if you get into the clingy paws of ICO internet scammers, so before you invest, it is important to learn some of the basics and fundamentals.
by StealthEX
Here is a heap of cryptocurrency books we recommend you to read to nurture your crypto side of the brain:

Digital Gold by Nathaniel Popper

In his shortlisted for the 2015 Financial Times and McKinsey business book of the year, Popper tells us the story of bitcoin since its early days. He tells the story through the eyes of famous and bright crypto influencers including South American and Asian millionaires, the Winklevoss twins and the legendary Satoshi Nakamoto. The author compares the digital currency to gold, claiming cryptocurrency to be the new global standard of storing the value.
Some readers say that Digital Gold book is a ready material for a thriller – unexpected plot twists, powerful influential organizations, drugs, blackmail make up the fascinating story to read and a really good starting point to understand what Bitcoin and Blockchain Technology is. The only downside that it only takes you up to 2015 but don’t worry, those were jam-packed years of growing.

The Internet of Money by Andreas Antonopoulos

Even though Andreas Antonopoulos is one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and blockchain experts, he has a unique talent to simply explain complicated materials herewith maintaining the significance of the topic. For readers who want to explore more theory, The Internet of Money book is actually a collection of talks given by technology-enthusiast Andreas Antonopoulos, where he surpasses all the technical “geeky” details. In each section he delivers complex discussions in average words, exploring the economic, political, social and philosophical sides of the technology that has forever affected our world.
By the way, the book was released in 3-volume series so you won’t miss out on any trivia.

The Little Bitcoin Book: Why Bitcoin Matters for Your Freedom, Finances, and Future by Alejandro Machado, Jimmy Song, Alena Vranova, Timi Ajiboye, Luis Buenaventura, Lily Liu, Alexander Lloyd, Alex Gladstein

Why does the price keep changing? Is Bitcoin worth investing my money into? How does it even have value? Why do people keep saying that it is the future of currency? The answers to all these questions you are going to find out in this book written by 8 experienced crypto experts. They finished it in just four days and they did well in accumulating their knowledge in a book format along with covering a lot of different questions and concerns around the digital currency. The book also explains how Bitcoin affects people’s freedom and opportunities. Also, there is a Q & A section with some of the most frequently asked questions about Bitcoin.

Cryptoassets: The Innovative Investor’s Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond by Chris Burniske & Jack Tatar

The book provides a useful framework on some popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple, etc. and also explains why and how to invest and what would be the best thing to invest into. The authors make a major focus on investment strategies that really work, and teach you on fundamental notions like volume, liquidity and volatility of crypto coins. The authors use infographics, equations, historical data and statistics to teach you about crypto assets and markets.
This crypto book is as suitable for the beginners as for the advanced investors. It’s written in a straight forward style and will probably serve as a good reference for the future.

Mastering Bitcoin: Programming the Open Blockchain by Andreas M. Antonopoulos

Another Andreas Antonopoulos book but at this time an intermediate level. If you want a technical explanation, with code samples – get this book, Mastering Bitcoin is for people who already have a programming or computer science background. Well-delivered, useful and enlightening – the book takes you through the intricate world of bitcoin, providing the knowledge you need to participate in the internet of money. Whether you’re a software developer, startup investor, or simply curious about the technology, this edition is definitely worth your attention!

The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking by Saifedean Ammous

This is a book written by a world-class economist Saifedean Ammous, where he explains how money works, why some money works better than the others and how monetary systems evolved throughout history – from ancient times to our days.
Some people call it an eye-opening book, which would make you overthink the concept of money in general. Anyway, the book certainly is thought-provoking and it might induce you to dive deeper into the crypto world. The author doesn’t try to predict the future of money but to widen our horizon, to understand the problem of our economic system, and see the possibility of having a decentralized alternative to central banking.

The Book Of Satoshi: The Collected Writings of Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto by Phil Champagne

Have you ever wondered who stands behind the whole crypto industry? Who made it all possible? The fun thing is that nobody knows. All we know is the name – Satoshi Nakamoto. In his book, Champagne dives deeper into his mysterious personality and investigates who Nakamoto might be, whether it is one person or a group, and how it was possible for Nakamoto to create the game-changing Bitcoin while remaining completely anonymous. The book includes actual emails and internet posts by Nakamoto, presented in chronological order. Fine resource for anyone interested in Bitcoin, it gives insight into Satoshi’s thinking, and readers can look at Bitcoin from a whole new perspective!

The Winklevoss twins: Bitcoin can reach 500 000 dollars per coin

The Winklevoss twins: Bitcoin can reach 500 000 dollars per coin
https://preview.redd.it/2zeaxv4zbkm51.jpg?width=908&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c750df84d2ef545ad3f5b402c5a42a3f5cce4a81
Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are 2 of the most important figures in the cryptocurrency world. These twins are very famous for their early involvement in the sector, but also because they are co-founders and main executive officers of the Gemini exchange, one of the U.S. leading cryptocurrency exchanges. Their opinions have always been highly respected by the cryptocurrency community and therefore, their latest statement about the future of money, US dollar, gold, oil and Bitcoin, received a lot of attention.
Rising indebtedness of the world and problems of US dollar
The analysis of Winklevoss Capital, which was published by Tyler Cameron looked at the current financial world and pointed out some of the biggest problems. One of them is the rising indebtedness of the whole world, especially United States.
According to them, the debt-to-GDP ratio of United States has risen from 106% to 135% only due to Covid-19. To put it into perspective, debt-to-GDP ratio has been around 83% during Global Financial Crises 2008–2009. After that the ratio rose to about 106% during the second decade of this century. However only this year it has risen to 135%, or by 29%, which is more than in previous 10 years combined.
US is not the only state having this problem. When looking at China it is visible, that debt-to-GDP ratio has risen in this Asia superpower as well. Pre-COVID ratio of around 300% has risen in less than 3 months to 318% (in only Q1 2020). The same can be concluded about most of the world leading countries and economies.
Sadly, helping with the debt are the central banks. These financial institutions that are trying to avoid the collapse of whole financial world, are currently printing insane amounts of money as a way of dealing with slowing economies. However, this process cannot continue infinitely and it will surely leave a mark on all the economies and their preparedness for next crises.
Only looking at the balance sheet of Federal Reserve, central bank of US and one of the most important financial institutions in the world should be worrying. Due to COVID-19 related problems the bank has increased its balance sheet by 3 trillion dollars, of which 1,1 trillion was printed. To see it from another perspective, the Fed printed two thirds as much money in the last 6 months as it did over the prior 11 years.
The Bitcoin argument
Seeing dollar as the biggest problem or blaming everything on Fed is of course not the best decision. It will not solve anything. However, Bitcoin can solve some of the problems outlined above. The most important as well as the most obvious is the problem of centralization. All of the money supply, and the financial world as such is based on centralization and third parties. Bitcoin is a decentralized currency based solely in digital world, which makes it desirable for upcoming generations.
Moreover, it is solving the problem of money printing and therefore inflation. Since Bitcoin has given supply, it is not only scarce, but also fixed at 21 million bitcoins. This makes it completely opposite of the money supply as is known now.
Bitcoin also already proved its worth. Increasing from an idea, a whitepaper, to a 200 billion dollars market capitalization in less than a decade, Bitcoin has taken the financial markets by storm and is by far the most profitable asset in modern history. However, when compared to market capitalization of gold, one of the closest assets by its scarcity and investment characteristics, Bitcoin still has room to grow. With more than 9 trillion dollars, the market capitalization of gold is bigger 45-times, meaning that if Bitcoin ever reaches the market capitalization of gold, it could be selling for over 500 000 dollars a coin.
Be a part of this growing world
The prediction above is not even the most optimistic the Winklevoss twins have released. According to them Bitcoin can grow as high as 600 000 dollars a coin if central banks hedged their positions by buying the biggest cryptocurrency. Therefore, the upside investment potential is incredible, which will in the long term only attract more and more investors, who would want to participate in the sector.
And one of the best places to start with cryptocurrencies is Fun Gram. This project offers broad scale of products and services that are crypto related and offer great investment potential. This decentralized social finance platform is one of its kind since it creates “Social Finance” by combining Fun, Friendship, Fund and Restart mechanism in a key factor called 3F+R.
Moreover, its core ideas are still connected to cryptocurrency sector due to the belief that the privacy should be one of the main goals of crypto world. That is why Fun Gram offers peer-to-peer encryption of communication services, which serve to encrypt messages exchanged by users, leading to safe and private communication within all sides included.
