So after seeing @johnarb 's post in Baron's journal, I have been watching some videos from EllioTrades Crypto channel. I'm just trying to get an overhead view of all the different things he is talking about. Its pretty clear to me how if you're gonna play in this sandbox, you almost have to do it full time. Of course for guys who have already struck it rich, its much easier to devote their time to this, but at this advanced stage of the market, there is just far too much out there to have to research. Anyway, as a side note, he does caution about a crash by perhaps the end of the month, so that is something to look out for, but its two specific points in this video below that I link below that I'd like to really address. He discusses how for every $1 of new money coming into crypto, this has a $25 affect on Market Cap. Can this same thing be said about stocks or is crypto some magical market where with just a little push, you end up going light speed? Further to this, he shows how small the crypto market is in reference to the stock market, 2T vs 91T, and states that it will reach hundreds of trillions. Now lets look at this from the perspective of the economy. What is the total value of assets in the world if we add equities, precious metals, real estate, etc? I have no idea, but to get to hundreds of trillions from 2 trillion for crypto, this will be one hell of an inflation jump. Can the economy really absorb this? We can't just assume that we can create exponential wealth in a matter of months or years. This money will of course want to be spent, and as it is now with supply shocks and people not wanting to work, all this extra "wealth" will just exacerbate the problem much more. It doesn't matter if you're rich if there is nothing to buy and restaurants are closed since nobody wants to work there. I saw in another video that 12% of the US already own some crypto. This is a fairly large percentage if you ask me. I would almost bet less people than this own precious metals in a meaningful amount. But if all of a sudden 12% of the population explode in their wealth, will there be actually anything to buy? Will the other 90% still want to cater to these "fat cats"? The wealth inequality is already so large, and an explosion in crypto market cap will just make it so much worse. He talks about the big transformation from brick & mortar to the internet, but if we look at what this did to GDP, we see that it went from roughly 10T in 2000 to 20T in 20 years! This is a decent but consistent rise, and nothing like an explosion where a 2T crypto market cap suddenly overtakes a 91T stock market cap in maybe just a few years. So the point I'm trying to make is that some of these claims just don't make sense. You cannot have a crypto market, that essentially produces nothing, match or surpass the market cap of the stock market that is responsible for everything we eat, use and buy. If the crypto market doubles and doubles, what we have is serious inflation, and that is not the type of environment most people want to live in. So is it fair to say that an explosion of the crypto market cap is unrealistic? If the crypto market wants to steal some business from traditional finance, then fine, but you can't all of a sudden create 10T or more out of nowhere and expect the rest of the economy to function as normal.
