    Austrian economics and Bitcoin

    The story of the Austrian School of economics begins in the 15th century, when the followers of St Thomas Aquinas, who was writing and teaching at the University of Salamanca in Spain, sought to explain the full range of human actions and social organisation. Over the course of several generations, they discovered and explained the laws of supply and demand, the cause of inflation, the operation of foreign exchange rates, and the subjective nature of economic value. Austrian supporters were advocates of property rights and the freedom to contract and trade. They celebrated the contribution of business to society while doggedly opposing taxes, price controls, and regulations that inhibited enterprise.

    How can cryptocurrency improve cross-border payments?

    Bitcoin can be viewed as an uncensorable form of money that can be sent by anyone to anywhere in the world. It can be sent much cheaper and more quickly than traditional methods, thereby improving cross-border payments and bypassing third parties. Bitcoin isn’t the only cryptocurrency capable of this feat either. The current predicament In an increasingly globally-connected world, sending money from one person to another, from one bank to another, and from one country to another has proved difficult. Large fees can be applied and the process can take days to clear. There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, the movement of money can be contentious.

There is, of course, another side to the coin. With the launch of more and more cryptocurrencies, how can users value each token? Should we use traditional financial metrics, such as the ones we use to evaluate stocks, based on cash flows, revenues, or equity? Or should the analytics models be based on different attributes, such as the value of the network, utility metrics, and transaction speed?

BTC is trading above its 50-day, 100-day, and 200-day EMAs after a massive spike in price earlier in May which took Bitcoin through the roof on almost all exchanges.
