Bitcoin is the eden of a Common Sovereignty

It finally clicked last night. Bitcoin is not the email of money, it is the internet of money.
As the internet was the Eden of a common knowledge. So Bitcoin is the Eden of a common sovereignty.
We are already "all-in", whether we like it or not.
Bitcoin is the new arms race. Bitcoin is the new alms race.

"Even at $10,000, I believe bitcoin to be the most undervalued asset in the world" - Simon Dixon, Bank To The Future

I was at Blockshow Asia in Singapore this week and saw a ton of interesting talks and presentations. My favorite was Simon Dixon, of Bank To The Future - who stated that even at $10,000, Bitcoin was still the most undervalued asset in the world.
His claim was supported by his strong belief that institutional money has still not yet entered the space. This isn't exactly a revelation since that it a widely held belief by many bitcoin bulls, but Simon had an interesting way of describing the situation Wall Street currently finds itself in.
Dixon described bitcoin as the first investment in modern history that the small time investor has access to before Wall Street, which is hamstrung by the lack of regulation in the space. However, once Wall Street is able to enter, they will in a big way. With CME Futures on the horizon eventually paving the way for an ETF, their entry seems all but inevitable and they're not going to be buying with pocket change.
Dixon said that whether individual fund managers are believers in bitcoin or not, they will have no choice to put their clients into BTC because it is one of the few investments that at present, is completely uncorrelated to the mainstream capital markets. Finding uncorrelated assets is a very basic element to traditional diversified portfolio management (which is also discussed in Chris Burniske's Cryptoassets), so it will be a no-brainer for them whether they like it or not.
He also discussed the properties that will establish Bitcoin as the powerhouse he believes it is destined to become - the fact that it is the world's first truly neutral currency, that doesn't care about any specific country or government and can't be shut down by them either.
On fiat currencies, he does not see them ever going away but sees a future where people can spend their local inflationary fiat currencies but hold their wealth in cryptocurrencies that have zero connection to whichever country someone lives in. The fact that people will have a choice will ultimately keep governments honest because if they abuse their power, everyone will be free to move their wealth and the government will be powerless to stop it.
Lastly, he predicted that in 2018 we'll see the entire cryptocurrency market reach a trillion dollar valuation. He said that there will be will be bubbles, casualties, scams and regulation along the way but ultimately, the move towards a trillion is already fast in motion.
I'll be traveling around Asia for the next couple months writing about all of the cool blockchain and cryptocurrency tech that's developing here.

Anything of value I learn, I'll do my best to pass it on to you guys since I've already learned a ton from the reddit community. Thanks!

I'm seeing alot of talk we're in a bubble...

$10K brought alot of people in. $10K Euro brought alot of people in. It became "legitimate". Bitcoin has always been a boutique high risk experiment. Some of that risk fell out after china banned it, hash attack, community split attack et al. So it stopped being a $50 exercise and started being a $5000 exercise, i.e putting 1%-10% of your folio into it became a "rational play". All this is happening alongside institutional buy in, we haven't had retail and institutional buy in at the same time before for any asset I can think of. Moreover it's at global scale, at internet speed, during a time of super high liquidity, high asset prices, high value centralisation within the economy (more technical point). Suffice to say there might be drops, but all this looks fine from a risk/reward investment perspective. The reality is we've never had an asset like this, most people just got the core value wrong by orders of magnitude. Simon Dixon has a good take on this stuff, these assets are massively massively undervalued. Still and right now. Keep HODL. If you can't, it's fine, the rally will continue, take a break, come back later.

Britain to Scrap VAT on Bitcoin Trades - FT article

By Jane Wild, Daniel Thomas and Vanessa Houlder
Britain’s tax authority is planning to ditch value added tax on Bitcoin trading, only days after the collapse of Mt Gox, one of the virtual currency’s leading exchanges, losing almost $500m of customer deposits.
The UK’s welcoming approach to Bitcoin contrasts with that of other countries, amid concerns about its use for tax evasion and money laundering as well as its notoriety for wide fluctuations in value. More video
In a meeting with a group of UK traders last week, HM Revenue & Customs said it would not charge the 20 per cent VAT tax on trades, which entrepreneurs had complained made their businesses globally uncompetitive. HMRC went a step further, saying it would not charge the tax on their margins either.
The ruling sidesteps the thorny question of whether to class Bitcoin as a currency, but effectively treats it as such, and bases its policy on the EU law that exempts payments and transfers of “negotiable instruments” from tax.
Governments worldwide have wrestled with the conundrum of how to deal with virtual currencies, as businesses hoping to profit from a small but growing economy have lobbied for regulation that would allow them to flourish.
Singapore has issued tax guidelines for Bitcoin, while an internal US watchdog has criticised the Internal Revenue Service for not doing so.
“If they had added VAT that would have destroyed us, there would have been no point in starting this business at all,” said Jonathan Harrison, who has a start-up working on bringing Bitcoin ATM machines to the UK. “It’s great that the UK authorities are seeing Bitcoin as an innovative technology that can help the economy.”
The degree to which economists have ignored Bitcoin is surpassed only by the extent to which Bitcoin enthusiasts have ignored economics. The divide between these groups is larger than that between analogue and digital.
The European Banking Authority has warned that consumers are not protected by any refund rights under EU law when using virtual currencies for commercial transactions. China has banned its banks from handling Bitcoin, while Russia and Vietnam have declared transactions illegal.
The decision comes as the Bitcoin Foundation, the non-profit advocacy group, told the Financial Times it would redomicile from the US to the UK this spring. Some Bitcoin users see the UK as a more favourable jurisdiction in the wake of Edward Snowden’s revelations about the US government spying on the internet as well as centre of a buoyant “fin-tech” industry.
The Bitcoin Foundation, set up to develop the software that runs the currency and to lobby governments and regulators, is searching for staff and office space in London, according to board executive director Jon Matonis.
Last year HMRC had classed Bitcoin as a voucher, charging VAT on the value of the coin itself. Businesses in the UK had protested against that treatment, saying it would drive customers to countries where no charge was levied. HMRC later withdrew that guidance after meetings over the course of last year.Other taxes, such as corporation tax, would still apply. The policy applies to all business that buy, sell or exchange Bitcoin.
As interest in Bitcoin increases, US officials are looking into how to regulate, rather than shut down, the virtual currency. The tax authority said: “HMRC has been working closely with the Bitcoin industry on the tax treatment of trading in Bitcoins and commission. We will be issuing guidance shortly.”
Simon Dixon at Bank to the Future, which helps start-ups to raise funding and has 10 working on Bitcoin projects, said: “The Bitcoin start-up community is booming. If we get favourable regulations that will build a lot of interest from start-ups around the world to come and base themselves in London.”
