The Drawback

To flourish, humanity wishes to return to unfastened marketplace cash (no longer issued by means of central banks or governments, however bobbing up from the marketplace) that can not be manipulated by means of central banks and/or governments, nor eliminated. This cash additionally must be virtual, to facilitate world price switch, but scarce (virtual tokens have at all times been “copyable”).

Gold used to paintings smartly, however being bodily, as business expanded past the native the city to world business, peer-to-peer change of gold changed into impractical. The way to that weak point was once to centralize it (the usage of financial institution ledgers as an alternative, or financial institution “notes”), and digitize it (digitization of notes/contracts), permitting banks to grow to be intermediaries of all non-P2P transfers of cash. Gold’s bodily nature resulted in the creation of gold-backed paper/virtual cash, however then in the long run to fiat cash — government-issued cash no longer subsidized by means of anything else in any respect, no longer even gold. Fiat cash prices not anything to supply, isn’t scarce, and permits governments to steer clear of marketplace forces. It permits the federal government to at all times increase, facilitating a continuing and sluggish march to international totalitarianism.
