CBDCs: The Second Coming of Bitcoin

There has certainly been a lot of hype around Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs). Among its notable proponents is China, who earlier this year introduced a homegrown digital currency across four cities as part of a pilot program, marking a milestone on the path toward the first electronic payment system by a major central bank. This was followed by one of the oldest banks in the world, the Bank of England, who signaled it would consider pursuing a CBDC. 

So, does the trend for CBDCs pose a threat to established cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin? And what might the future hold? To begin answering this question, we must first understand its modern-day limitations.

Since the Bank of England’s foundation in 1694, the bank issued notes promising to pay the bearer a sum of money. For much of its history, it was entirely possible to take a Pound note to the bank and exchange it for gold, a scarce commodity with little physical utility. The gold provided the banknote with intrinsic value.

However, this link was broken by the British in 1931, and by the Americans in 1933 for its citizens. Today, the strength and dominance of fiat currency are based on nothing more than faith. Let’s take the USD, which since Bretton Woods, has rightly or wrongly, underpinned the modern financial system. It has value because we have faith in the United States’ economic and military strength, willingness to recover debts, and thus its ability to come good on its treasury bills.

As for Bitcoin, it has value because it is governed by an algorithm which means only 21 million Bitcoins can ever be mined. Once miners have unlocked all the Bitcoins, the planet’s supply will essentially be tapped out unless the protocol is changed to accommodate a larger supply. Therefore, Bitcoin’s value is intrinsically linked to the algorithm’s guarantee. 

When it comes to CBDCs, some commentators warn its proliferation will become a threat to Bitcoin as government-controlled currencies will replace unregulated cryptocurrencies. In reality, this is unlikely and the reason is this.

CBDCs are extensions of fiat currencies. They are subject to the usual rules of fiscal policy and economics. In short, they behave like fiat currencies. Federal regulators can perpetually print digital notes under the guise of quantitative easing, increasing inflation, and reducing purchase power. Changes in public confidence in a government can be enough to make their currency worthless virtually overnight. Just ask any Argentinian.

Bitcoin on the other hand has intrinsic value. Its value is not based on mere faith but a robust deflationary algorithm. This is why the introduction of CBDC’s are unlikely to have an impact on pure cryptocurrencies. However, with the increasing supply and diversity of CBDCs expected, an interesting discussion is what they will need to do with them.

We’re living in a digital era and technology has radically transformed many industries. Look no further than the geopolitical tensions around 5G which are set to unlock the multi-trillion “Industry 4.0”. Yet the current financial system has been slow to transform. Markets are still opening at 8am and shutting up shop around 5pm, in a world where global 24/7 markets are entirely possible.

For CBDCs to have true purpose and value beyond its paper equivalent, the financial system will need to be rebuilt to support them. When this happens, to take a religious term will be the second coming of Bitcoin.

If financial institutions are forced to build out the infrastructure to transact and store CBDCs, the same underlying infrastructure could be used to support Bitcoin. In fact, investment banks would cherish this. They are not precious about whether it’s fiat or a shiny metal they are trading. They just want access to a diverse range of asset classes. Also, imagine millions, perhaps billions of people with access to digital wallets, accustomed to digital money with financial services to match. If Bitcoin is supported as part of this revolution, this increases Bitcoin’s utility, and therefore value.

The proliferation of CBDCs will therefore indirectly give Bitcoin a boost, increasing its value and relevance. Expect to see another gold rush wave for enterprising miners, recognizing the opportunity to get ahead of the inevitable. But this time it won’t just be individuals with their ASIC miners or even the farms participating. 

So when we begin to see financial system 2.0 come to bear, what would you rather hold? CBDCs or Bitcoin? If the latter, it might be time to ensure your mining hardware and setup is giving you the competitive advantage you need to stay ahead of the curve in this next gold rush.

Antminer Insight 2020

The Status of the Bitcoin Mining Industry

In recent years, Bitcoin mining developed from the participation of a few geeks and programmers to a hot investment target with a current market cap of $175 billion. 

Through fluctuations in both the bull market and bear market activities, many traditional entrepreneurs and fund management companies continue to play a key role in the mining industry today. Fund management companies no longer use traditional models to measure mining. In addition to introducing more economic models to measure returns, they have also introduced financial instruments such as futures and quantitative hedging to reduce risks and increase returns. 

Bitmain has observed a dramatic shift in the interest of Bitcoin mining since the previous halving in 2016. A significant number of service companies have emerged in the mining industry, including third-party mining suppliers, mining operators, maintenance service providers, mining hardware finance leasing companies, third-party mining hardware maintenance companies, and digital currency financial services.

Industry integration saw companies like Bitmain expand their business to integrate other services. Exchanges began to establish mining pools, and mining pools began to develop wallets. All of these are a result of the bear market as companies could not only offer more but now had the demand to take more on. 

The Price of Mining Hardware

For many miners who have entered or who are considering entering the mining market, the pricing of mining hardware is of key interest.

It is commonly known that the price of mining hardware can be divided into two categories: factory price and circulating price. Many factors dictate these pricing structures with the fluctuating value of Bitcoin, a key factor in both the new and second-hand hardware markets. 

The actual circulation value of mining hardware is affected not only by the quality, age, condition, and warranty period of the machine but by fluctuations in the digital currency market. When the price of a digital currency rises sharply in a bull market, it can cause a short supply of miners and generate a premium for hardware. 

This premium is often proportionally higher than the increase in the value of the digital currency itself, leading many miners to directly invest in mining instead of cryptocurrencies. 

Likewise, when the value of a digital currency is in decline and the price of mining hardware in circulation begins to fall, the value of this decrease is often less than that of the digital currency.

Acquiring an Antminer 

At the moment, there are excellent opportunities for investors to enter the market and own Antminer hardware based upon several key factors. 

In the lead up to the recent Bitcoin halving, many established miners and institutional investors held a ‘wait-and-see’ attitude on the effects on currency prices as well as the total computing power of the network. Since the halving occurred on May 11, 2020, the total monthly network computing power fell from 110E to 90E, however, the value of Bitcoin has enjoyed a slow rise in value, remaining relatively stable and free from the anticipated sharp fluctuations. 

Since this halving, those who have purchased new mining hardware can expect an appreciation of both the machine and Bitcoin over the next years until the next halving. As we move into this new cycle, revenue generated by Bitcoin will stabilize and profits will likely remain constant throughout this period. 

Global Mining Trends

At present, China’s mining scale accounts for 65% of the world’s total, while the remaining 35% is distributed from North America, Europe, and the rest of the world.

On the whole, North America has gradually begun to support digital asset mining and guide funds and institutions with professional operation and risk control capabilities to enter the market; Stable political situation, low electricity charges, reasonable legal framework, relatively mature financial market, and climate conditions are the main factors for the development of cryptocurrency mining.

USA: Missoula County Committee of Montana has added green regulations for digital asset mining. The regulations require that miners can only be arranged in light and heavy industrial areas. After review and approval, the mining rights of the miners can be extended to April 3, 2021.

Canada: Continues to take measures to support the development of digital asset mining business in Canada. Quebec Hydro has agreed to reserve one-fifth of its electricity (about 300 megawatts) for miners.

China: The advent of the annual flood season in the Sichuan province in China ushered in a period of significantly lower electricity costs for mining hardware, which can accelerate more mining taking place. As the flood season reduces costs and increases profits, it is expected to see a reduction of Bitcoin liquidation, which would also stimulate the rise in currency prices. 

Advice for Choosing a Suitable Mining Machine

For individual miners, Bitmain recommends a machine with a relatively low power consumption ratio represented by T17+ and S17e. This miner is currently the mainstream model in the market. Compared with the latest models, the price is lower, the return period is shorter. When cryptocurrency price rises, the volatility of mining hardware to electricity prices will decrease, and this advantage will gradually widen, bringing more benefits to investors.

For customers who value mid to long-term returns, it is especially important to choose a machine with extremely low power consumption and stable operation. The Antminer T19, S19, and S19 Pro are selections tailored for this type of investment. A notable highlight is the current chip technology equipped in the 19 series is the most advanced technology at present. With the total production capacity of mining hardware manufacturers today being limited and the existence of Moore’s Law leads to an increasing physical iteration cycle of the chip, which in theory will lead to an increased lifecycle available to new hardware.
