Comparing bitcoin‘s Market Capitalization to Publicly Traded Companies

When I first encountered comparisons between the market capitalization of bitcoin and publicly traded companies, I felt frustrated and thought it was narrow-minded to try comparing the world’s first successful digitally native currency to a single industry or a single company. As I continued to engage with people on their bitcoin journey, I realized that this comparison can illustrate bitcoin’s strengths in a different way.

Conceptually Aligning Global Currencies and Companies

Instead of conceptualizing bitcoin reaching the level of global currencies, think of pulling global currencies down to the level of publicly traded companies. This avoids getting into the history of monetary theory when explaining bitcoin to investors.

Comparing USD and BTC as Companies

Picture USD and BTC as tickers on a stock market, each operating as a company. Both companies come with management policies, price performance history, legal obligations, and publicly traded shares.

Diverging Paths of USD and BTC

USD has a history of diluting its shares, while BTC operates with a predictable and declining rate of share issuance, benefiting from a steady issuance policy. USD, while holding market leverage, is losing its edge and showing poor price performance for investors. On the other hand, BTC is disruptive, has steady growth, and is showing no signs of slowing down in terms of price performance.

Market Conditions and bitcoin‘s Strengths

Market conditions are rapidly changing, with new players like BRICS entering the scene to compete with USD. BTC investors are holding tightly to their shares, and the company is growing and innovating at a consistent rate, maintaining an advantage regardless of the competition.

The Unique Nature of bitcoin

Ultimately, BTC is the only digitally native company among the three, positioned for success in an increasingly digital commerce landscape.

Every Individual as a BTC Employee

Every individual who adds value to the bitcoin network is considered a BTC employee, including investors, miners, developers, and vendors. Every user is an investor, employee, and business owner, creating a cohesive and consensus-driven network.

Collaborative Competitive Nature

The network functions through a collective agreement every ten minutes, with participants taking unique paths but collectively supporting the network. Even dissenting voices help educate and strengthen the network, highlighting its collective nature.

Conscious Investment in bitcoin

Choosing to invest in bitcoin is a conscious choice, with options to invest primarily with rationality or morality, setting aside ideological and moral arguments for a sober perspective on the network compared to its competition.

Conclusion and Advice

Viewing bitcoin through this lens simplifies the conversation and encourages wise investment decisions. It’s a call to action for those ready to recognize the shortcomings of the fiat system and invest wisely.
