    Jim & Bob. Jim please ask Bob to weigh in on his long term forecast for long term interest rates. Some are predicting a 10 years bull market in long term rates and I am curious what Bob thinks. Also, it would be great to hear Bob’s take on the Nigel Farage “de-banking” scandal. Thank You, Chris in Rhode Island

    Hi Jim and Bob. RFK, Jr., as well as other libertarian politicians, want Bitcoin freely convertible into USD with no tax consequences. According to Investopedia, four bitcoin “wallets” currently owned 2.81% of all the bitcoin and, according to BitInfoCharts, the top 100 wallets held more than 15% of all bitcoin. There are currently over 19.4 million Bitcoins in circulation. As of Thursday, Bitcoin is trading at about $29,000. Many Bitcoin enthusiasts see Bitcoin eventually replacing the dollar and will soon be trading at $250,000. If this prediction materializes, then the 100 Bitcoin “whales”, holding 15% of Bitcoins, or 2.9 million, would collectively be worth in excess of $725 trillion. That equals on average over $7.25 trillion for each of the top 100 bitcoin whales. The top four bitcoin holders, controlling 2.81% of bitcoin market, would be worth each on average in excess of 20 trillion each. Bob, I’m confused. If something like this happens then wouldn’t the big 100 Bitcoin whales eventually control the financial world? Bob, why isn’t anyone talking about gold in this way?
