Old Martial arts says- You can tie two wounded birds together and even though they have four wings, still they can not fly.
You can take a half dozen failed economies, add bitcoin into the equation and what do you end up with? I'm going to say the answer will still be - a half dozen failed economies.

    I could care less about their economies, the more places accepting BTC, and the more people using it, should make the price go up and or become more stable.

    Why? Thousand times more places accept Visa and other payment methods How come they don't go up in value with their usage? The day El Salvador adopted bitcoin, it dropped 17% before recovering much of it. So much for adding stability

    Because there is an unlimited Supply of Visa. Not so with BTC. There's a big difference between BTC and VISA, there is no real reason to compare the two.

    I didn't suggest that only one place adopting BTC would add stability or cause the price to go up. I said, the more places accepting BTC, and the more people using it, should make the price go up and or become more stable.

    I don't know enough about bons and stocks and whatnot, but this sounds like a good thing for the company.

    I'd never read about this before.

    Quantum computers will be a threat to things like Visa, bank accounts, PP, and many other things long before it will be a problem for BTC.

    I think they were estimating a hundred years before it would seriously affect Bitcoin and only a decade or so before it affects the banking industry.

    It might be time for you to take a ride on the crypto rocket.

    I don't need to.
    Remember the story of the bear who caught a salmon?
    Then he looked in the water, saw his reflection but thinking it was another salmon he lunged at, losing his first fish in the process?
    I've caught my salmon.

    The bear was rushing to catch the salmon too fast.

    We call that a Salmon Rushdie
