Bitcoin (BTC) is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Many are using the dump – which from a timing perspective aligns with a broader market sell-off on coronavirus fears – as a way to diminish the “bitcoin as a safe haven” narrative. 

In this episode, @nlw revisits that narrative and argues it is uncomfortably bunched up with the uncorrelated asset narrative, or, as Chamath Palihapitiya calls it, “schmuck insurance.”

This episode also covers:

  • Central bank digital currency (CBDC) news: Canada says it doesn’t see the need right now but that could change if private cryptos get more traction, while China’s work on a digital yuan is paused due to coronavirus shutdowns. 
  • The six-year anniversary of Mt. Gox’s lost 750,000 BTC coming to light.
