Macro analyst Lyn Alden says Bitcoin (BTC) is on track to become a medium of exchange – here’s why

Macro strategist Lyn Alden believes it is only a matter of time before Bitcoin’s (BTC) volatility decreases, thus enabling it to be a practical medium of exchange.

Alden He says in a What Bitcoin Did podcast that currently, however, the flagship cryptocurrency fails as an “ideal medium of exchange”.

“In the early stages, unless you specifically need censorship resistance or unless you are in a bank-free environment, for many people in developed countries, bitcoin is not the ideal medium of exchange. Unless they’re de-platforming or just want to use it right, ahem, they’re super into it. “

According to the macro-strategy, Bitcoin’s volatility will decrease as the level of adoption increases.

“If you go through five more of these cycles, and we’re 20 years into the future, and Bitcoin is more stable and held by 30% of the world’s population, whatever the number, you’d expect it to be much less volatile in that environment than it is. don’t be now.

In addition to the low adoption rate, the macro strategist says speculation and leverage in the cryptocurrency market contribute to Bitcoin’s high levels of volatility.

“[Bitcoin is right now] actually held by a rather small percentage population, there are hidden pockets of leverage in the system, as we have seen with some of these lenders. For example, it is often used as collateral for placing bets on altcoins and things like that. And so there are many things that can add or decrease volatility.

So when it goes up a lot in price, a lot of new people discover it for the first time. Or, at this point, they’ve heard of it but may not have really looked into it and start looking into it again.

So there are new buyers flooding with upside volatility and then when you get that leverage and that speculation, you get strong downside volatility ”.
