Charting the Progress

Bitcoiners know that there will always be fewer than 21,000,000 BTC. But do you take this claim for granted or do you truly understand how the limit is enforced? Take a stroll with me through the code in this deep dive.
Jurrien Timmer
A few days ago I made the case that 40k could be the new 30k for Bitcoin, based on the rising intrinsic value from my S-curve model. I just came across an indicator that further suggests this: Dormancy flow. It has reached the kind of oversold levels seen at past bottoms.🧵
Will Clemente
A tweet for long-term Bitcoin investors:

When you zoom out, Bitcoin user growth is up and to the right.
John Cantrell
You probably saw the news this week that two people have solo mined a Bitcoin block and earned 6.25 BTC worth over $250,000. You’re probably wondering

What is solo mining?
How much does it cost?
What are the odds?
Should you be mining?

Let me break it down for you 👇

Every single cycle🤦‍♂️

The US military can't mine Bitcoin because none of the ASICs are made in the US.

Meme-ories don't leave like people do
Dennis Porter
The guy sitting next to me on the plane just told me he has a PhD in Economics. I asked him what he thought about #Bitcoin and he said “Its not interesting and will probably fail.”

Early AF.
Dennis Porter
A guy at the bar just said he’s been a banker for 30 years. I asked him his views on #Bitcoin . He said “It’s for criminals and can’t possibly succeed because governments will stop it.”

Damn, we’re so early.
