Pomp Compares Bitcoin to the Early Internet; We Will Have Human Friendly Digital Wallet Addresses Eventually.

Anthony Pompliano popularly known as Pomp compares Bitcoin to the early internet, says we will eventually have human friendly digital wallet addresses as seen in today’s internet and email services.
In his weekly letters sent to investors, Pomp says the internet was originally not meant for consumers and the interface proved that.
The interface was complex compared to what is seen in today’s internet. The early users of the internet weren’t the only one confused with it but, also bystanders who were either (a) confused by the new advancement and (b) those who thought it was vastly overhyped.
According to Pomp, the early internet is just like how Bitcoin. The early users of bitcoin were highly technically skilled and those who were incredibly curious as to what the technology was and could be, however, to use bitcoin, only technical persons were able to due to its unfriendly user interface just like the early internet.
And like the internet at its early days, as it grew, consumer applications and nicer interface started surfacing just as we can see in Bitcoin and crypto today. However, he said, the position today is not where Bitcoin and crypto will be in 10 to 20 years from now.
Just as to locate resources on the internet, one had to type in series of numbers (IP addresses), but now it has been changed to human readable and easily understood characters, that is what will happen to digital wallet addresses too.

He is quoted saying “today you have to send Bitcoin or other digital currency to a random string of letters and numbers………….. This can be confusing. The addresses are hard to remember. It is easy to mistype one of the characters etc.”

But eventually, Pomp continued

“we will have much more human-friendly digital wallet addresses. They won’t be these random strings of letters and numbers, they will be a word or a phrase that feels more like the internet, URLS, and email addresses feel today.”

And this will help ensure bitcoin is on its way to truly becoming a global, decentralized, digital currency. We need patience as the asset, and related infrastructure has to mature, Pomp concluded

Valour, a Switzerland Headquartered Firm Releases A Pro Bono Swiss Bitcoin ETP

Published

on

Valour, a firm headquartered in Switzerland recently launched what it tags the “first Bitcoin exchange-traded product (ETP)”. It operates this new product without charging a fee for management.  

The firm announced  that it now has the Bitcoin ETP quoted on the Stockholm-based Nordic Growth Market. This way investors will have official access to Bitcoin, the same way that traditional exchange-traded funds and equities are run.

Although investors are assured of not paying management fees, the firm urges them to be prepared to pay “investors’ usual brokerage fees” on the Investment product.

The Exchange Traded Product model is designed to draw its value from other traditional and nonconventional investment conduits like commercial products and currencies such as BTC which stands as a yardstick for ETPs.

The Founder who is also a Director at Valour, Johan Wattenström, notes:

 “The launch of the Bitcoin Zero ETP … marks a significant step towards the mainstream adoption of digital assets, enabling investors to diversify their portfolios and gain exposure to bitcoin, whose value has almost tripled this year.”

With the likes of Amun releasing a new BTC ETP on Xetra, Europe now boasts of a substantial number of crypto ETP listings.

BTC to Expand Into a Global Asset- CEO of  BlackRock, An Asset Management Giant

Published

on

Larry Fink, the Chief Executive Officer of BlackRock, a global asset management giant with more than   $7.4 trillion dollars in valuable properties under their surveillance – has declared Bitcoin as a Crypto with high potentials of evolving into a globally accepted asset and store of value. This bullish opinion on the digital gold appears to be called for, in view of the current Bitcoin (BTC) trends in recent times.

Just yesterday, the 1st of December, 2020, CNBC registered that Fink revealed how BTC has “caught the attention” of the general public even though the Crypto market is comparably smaller in size in contrast with other markets. 

Black rock’s CEO particularly emphasized how the digital gold is set to evolve into a “global market asset” in his briefing with Mark Carney, the former Bank of England Governor.

CNBC also disclosed that Fink hinted that this new wave of digital currencies are potential threats to the United States dollar as these nascent currencies are set to shake the USD’s sit, thereby reducing the latter’s global importance especially to global owners of dollar-pegged properties.

Fink brought a somewhat important question to the fore: 

“Does it change the need for the dollar as a reserve currency?”
