FED will not announce recession. They can either choose hike rate or announce recession, not both at the same time. So unless they want to stop hiking rates, but obviously hiking rates is their priority. FED can only pretend there is no recession, until they finished hiking the rates (to clean up their mess from brrrrrrrrr), the they may say “actually the economy is going to start recovering from recession” bs.

#Monero Pro-Arguments Below is an argument written by dragondude4 which won 2nd place in the Monero Pro-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > Privacy is a fundamental human right. > > Most cryptocurrency will never truly be used for everyday transactions, will never truly become “money” because money has to be private and fungible. Monero is the only cryptocurrency on the market right now that can truly be a substitute for “cash” money in our society because of its unbreakable privacy, fungibility and low fees. Here are detailed reasons why: > > For most cryptocurrency projects out there, every transaction is fully traceable. Anyone can paste your address in a block explorer, and see the addresses where you received your coins, and the addresses where you sent your coins. Anyone can also see your balance. > > For example when you buy something in a shop, the owner can see how much more coins you've got left in your wallet. Or, if you're a robber, you go to the shop and buy something, immediately you have the receiving address of the shop's cash register, and you can choose to ask for a "refund" at gunpoint if there's more in the cash register than it's worth the trouble. > > If you're a company, your competitors can track your addresses and see where and when and for how much you purchased your materials, and who bought your products. > > Most projects lack any privacy whatsoever and in that regard they’re worse than fiat payments for everyday things through a debit card. > > ### Fungibility > > Fungibility is a bit harder to explain. Fungibility literally means that 1 unit of account isn't equal to any other unit of account. Think of physical art, cars, houses, etc. > > A lot of crypto projects aim to be money, and money by definition must be fungible. One gold coin is equal to another gold coin of the same mass and chemical composition. You might say that it's the same with crypto, but transparency of the chain leading to lack of privacy ruins the fungibility. Why? Because every single coin has a history that's forever stored on the blockchain. > > Consider this: FBI catches a criminal who used your favorite crypto. His wallet is seized, and all addresses that he stored his coins in are blacklisted. That also means all other addresses which transacted with his own addresses are also suspicious and under investigation. Some even become blacklisted. Exchanges refuse to accept blacklisted coins, so suddenly your candy shop's wallet is effectively blocked from fiat ramps and centralized exchanges because that criminal bought a chocolate 3 months ago, and now you have tainted coins in your wallet. > > But you still have to spend your tainted crypto, to pay your workers, to pay suppliers, etc. You think you're innocent, but Binance or Coinbase would still freeze your deposit for months until the feds clear you, because you sent them tainted coins, which once belonged to a convicted murderer. So what that means? Effectively, your coins are now worth less that "clean" crypto, because not everyone accepts these coins as equal. So unfortunately it sells at discount. > > A real life analogy would be you going to a bank and depositing dollar bills that are stained by blood. Surely the teller would raise the alarm and security would apprehend you for questioning. Or going to a convenience store to buy a beer, and giving the merchant a dollar bill covered in mayonnaise. Would they accept your tainted bill? Surely not. Now your mayo dollar is worth less because it's different from other dollars. > > The opposite also applies: super-clean coins sell at premium. "Virgin Bitcoins" are a real thing--these are the coins which have never moved once they were mined, so they have no history. To buy these virgin BTCs you have to pay more than for "ordinary" BTC on an exchange. Real life analogy would be walking to FED building and getting brand new freshly printed dollar bills, which have neither blood, mayo, or traces of cocaine on them. ***** Would you like to learn more?

If FED stop printing money, there will be less people receiving income, this in turn will impact the sale of all sorts of company, making more people losing their jobs, creating a self strengthening death spiral.

You got it backwards, the bullwhip effect is something that is still to come, maybe. And when it perhaps come it is because inventories are really full so retailers are almost giving away products. This will bring inflation on things like that down, which would, some think, make the FED lower the rates. But there is a big gotcha there. Food and fuel. Neither are in for any bullwhip because there is no stockpiling up on them, and they are leading the inflation numbers everywhere in the world. But yeah, maybe the bottom is 15k, but without a miracle I don't see how we escape tanking further, to pre covid19 bubble levels, which would be around 10k.

What do you mean Bitcoin is priced in USD ? BTC is priced in BTC as a currency in itself and that currency is valued in different money including but not exclusively the USD You can buy Bitcoin with any currency you have ...I'm french I buy with euros I just don't care about USD The printing money problem is not related to the FED it's all central banks and gouvernements ++ By buying Bitcoin with Your dollars you transfer the value of your money from the dollar to Bitcoin and that's what we call the store of value to benefit from the Bitcoin fixed supply which the dollar or any Fiat currency doesn't have and will never have : Fiats = 1 USD / infinite Bitcoin = 1 BTC/ 21 million You do the math 😂

People saying this was the bottom at March when FED increased the rates 0.25% and saif their plan was to do the same anotber 7 times. The war was somehow stable, Russia did not advance as expected and life was returning to normal rest of the planet. The were no more restrictions and people were booking their summer holidays. There were news saying that the worst case scenario is already priced in, and the only way is up to new ATHs. What else could go wrong in the future, correct? Well it's seems many things could go wrong in the future, and many things did. FED did not stick to their plan for 7x 0.25 %increase, the inflation did not peak etc. People saying it the bottom, is an unreliable indicator. I don't say they are wrong (if everyday someone say this is the bottom, one day he will be correct), so search the old posts for people saying it and how accurate it was.

Mentions:#FED

While the FED raises interest rate every meeting. Haha /s

Mentions:#FED

I’m not saying it won’t happen. What I’m saying is that the game the FED is playing is to make people believe that rates will keep going up, which lowers demand in the market, and increases sell pressure. So even if they weren’t planning another 75 basis point hike, they need the general public to believe it. I personally see maybe one more major rate hike, and followed by a few years of small incremental ones, just to keep the public from thinking that rates are coming down. After all, if we think that rates will go down, asset prices will go up again. I think they reached their short term goals. Asset prices have tanked. Now they just need to make sure that they go up incrementally.

Mentions:#FED

> people fail to realize that we’re not even in a CONFIRMED recession. We will be shortly. People are going to be losing jobs, inflation problems and it’s going to be very tough for the average human. Correct, and the big problem is that the FED will fuel more inflation after the hike cycle to salvage the recession, but it is like treating cirrhosis with booze. Guy gets job back but real wages are crushed so he doesn't have that much money for housing, products, etc, because now inflationary expectations are so high that actors in the economy are hiking prices *to protect themselves against inflation itself*. Unionized workers will also go in periodic strike to get wage raise against inflation, which if given fuels more inflation. There is no way around this for the FED unless they try some harsher measure that hopefully lasts short term. In either case it looks bleak on both short and mid terms.

Mentions:#FED

I would waint until the FED stop increasing rates and inflation is back to 2%. Current predictions is that this will go on to 2023 so just watch the news. Then, I'd suggest to just invest in BTC and ETH, these are your 'blue chips' in crypto.

This is how a free market operates, the only reason this doesn't happen at the asset market is because a central bank called the FED printed 11 trillion since 2020. Well at least at a big scale. Shit will hit the fan (for some) and regulation will only keep it from happening for a mid term. Learn about economic cycles. No regulation happended after Argos collapsed of after 2008

As you are a US citizen ... you are not to familiar with FED and how they work, since you have such big oppinion on US banks lol. Bank closes down, aaaaaand you're money is gone, same as in crypto lol interest are way better in crypto, speed and scalability...and security is picking up the pace as well.

There should be no FED meeting, no bad news, China FUD etc. at least for next week or two. So, we won't be dropping 30% daily right. Right ?

Yes I have been reading that the FED is trying to make a narrow avoidance with the recession and even if it did hit it would be short term....I will stay close attention. Thank you very much

Seems like most fund managers don't even really own gold after all this time, so I'm not too sure if they would be so inclined to add bitcoin. Probably a CBDC which would be a realization of Friedman's monetarist policy. The FED would have direct control over the money supply and remove and add money as needed.

Mentions:#FED

While I do agree. I think it's good to mention that bitcoin has never been in a high interest rate environment. Though I believe it to be a strong asset to hold its important to understand that even traditional equities are over inflated because there's so much cheap money out there. An argument could be made that the traditional markets more so because the FED will buy securities but at the same time we have defi lending rehypothecating crypto over and over so it's tough to say what we ate in for in the coming years. I'd bet Bitcoin just keeps doing what it's been doing but who knows. I'm in it for the tech anyways.

I 100% support your question When you put your hard-worked product/service in exchange for something called money, you would expect that money itself is also the result of hard work, that gives you a feeling of fairness in trading That was the case when people used gold coins to trade. Gold itself is the result of hard mining work, just like any other work However, if you have to work hard for 30 years in order to get enough money to buy a house, then most of your life will be spent in a small rented apartment. It is more desireable to get the money first to buy the house, live in it, and then work 30 years to repay that debt Of course, when you apply for a house loan, banks already have the money, so that they can lend to you, that did not really answer the question about the money creation New money is created by FED, which is mostly against government debt. This is the focus of your question, it seems that there is no hard working involved at all here In general, government debt, works just like your house loan: Government want to spend the money now and repay that debt in 30 years. So they borrow from central bank, promise to pay interest + principle later through their future income. So there is still hard work behind it, just not today However, this money does not exist before, thus it is borrowed into existence. You could either consider FED having unlimited money to lend, or they borrow from the GOD. When the debt is repaid, these money returned to FED, and then they return to GOD, thus disappear from FED's balance sheet

The FED tightening cycle in 2016-2019 did not really affect the bitcoin halving cycle, so I doubt it will this time. There is a high probability that US government collapses under high interest rate of their debt, so FED really can not do a lot at this stage, but return to QE very soon. Of course they will not call it QE, some new scheme will be designed

I think you're ignoring the rather grave consequences of zero FED intervention. Are you telling me that you would rather have seen the American economy enter a depression in 2008? After a decade or more we would have recovered from it. But would it be worth the massive uptick in crime, poverty, and overall economic despair--more than what we saw during the recession? All the while other nations enacted bailouts to support their economies which would have put them ahead of the USA? Moreover, how would you prepare? Most likely, you would have lost your job or perhaps seen friends and family lose their jobs. If you don't mind seeing that, well, I guess you're more prepared than most.

Watch Debt/GDP ratio. specifically our tax receipts (ie Debt/Income ratio). GDP and Gov Income is plummeting which will force a decision bt defaulting on our debt or letting inflation run wild. Luke Gromen predicts the FED will reverse course in Q3 and eventually start printing $$$ again to cover our deficit (QE restart) which will exacerbate inflation. No good outcomes.

Historically speaking the FED always needed higher rates than the inflation. Right now that would be a 10% rates. The goal of the FED for year end is 3.5%... If you look out just for inflation then we won't see anything.

Mentions:#FED

I would say that it is the other way around. FED did some changes to attack inflation and it caused stocks to tank. They did not really tank or crash, it was more like price correction with insanely overpriced 500 p/e stocks crashing 50% to represent their value better. And sale off in crypto space happened after this and because of pegs and margins, tons of stuff for liquidated very fast which caused more and more sell offs. But the real trigger was fed and stock market that reacted first. If it did not happen then Terra Luna scam and overpriced cryptocurrencies and tech stocks could go on for months or years.

Watch zeitgeist on YT you’ll shit yourself and question e everything. To sum it up, fiat is manipulated and controlled by the FED, BTC is operated, secured and transactions confirmed all by the people for the people with the people. They can’t stop us. Let’s say if all banks world wide stopped transfers to crypto exchanges, us miners can produce BTC ourselves, that’s the power of BTC.

There's going to have to be very specific events 1. The FED pivots to a more dovish stance. 2. Which means inflation has to peak 3. The rate hikes don't tank the economy (recession) And most importantly 4. When the whales decide everything else is set up for them to go. So however long that takes. 18 months sounds right. But shit be crazy lately.

Alts can have further downside risk, some will go bust. If you understand the macro environment (FED, supply chain, traditional markets, housing bubble, war, etc) it seems were in for a down crypto market for months to come (with dead cat bounces along the way). Some might say sell now and buy projects back when they drop another 20%. Some say convert alts to bitcoin and wait for the macro to improve, as bitcoin will likely pump first followed by alts. If you are in good projects you can simply do nothing and wait for the next bull run, but who knows what a good project is really? If you plan on keeping your bags for the next year or more, maybe consider self custody because Centralized exchanges appear to be on shaky ground.

Because what bitcoin is is not too conditional on how it translates to fiat. And people who know it and believe in it isn’t dumb enough to compare it to tulips. And it’s the most ideal store of value, and has been tested over time. Saw institutional investors coming in a lot in 2020 and 2021. The ones with money will always buy and hold, while the monkey brained ditsy investors with only 6 figures in the bank will try to maximize profit by trading it. It all comes down to fundamental stock to flow. Goes all the way to early 1900’s when ford introduced energy as currency to be converted via kWh. Some level of conspiracy there but yea. Bitcoin will stay correlated to the stock market until it isn’t. Also spot etf still to be approved, and I think there is a reason why SEC is delaying that. I feel that many ppl don’t realize how much of an impact the spot etf will have on bitcoin’s price. Having background in network/cyber security, simplicity trumps complexity or performance sometimes, and bitcoin’s core concept is pretty simple. Can’t go wrong from a security standpoint. And I prefer proof of work over proof of stake because the latter can be abused. Bitcoin’s design and purpose has an innate beauty to it, and I’d rather buy bitcoin than hold stocks, because if you think about it, stocks are just as fucked as other speculative assets. It’s backed by a dollar that FED is manipulating for nation state affairs. Wall Street has gamified the USD from decades ago, and you have to hedge and leverage to win that stupid game.

They can issue bonds forever but they can't inflate the debt away. It would be like a personal debt. You can roll it for some time. But it's not sustainable. For governments it is sustainable because they can always print money to pay it back. Or just print money to make your debts effectively smaller through inflation. Bitcoin system would make government debt like a personal debt. All governments would be at the risk of a default if they borrow too much. Currently a government that borrows money only in a currency the it issues can only default if it so wishes. It can always ask FED to mark up the account, tap enter and the debt is paid with brand new money. I realise that this is scary. Government default is not fun. This is a theoretical discussion only. I don't see how the governments could be forced to accept the bitcoin system and forgo the power of creating money.

>Within two years inflation is at normal levels or slighty below with the measures taken by the FED. The ECB starts raising interest rates in july. That present tense here is confusing. You're saying within 2 years inflation will be at normal levels? We have no idea if that's true. Central banks are going to want to try and raise interest rates as little as possible to avoid triggering a recession. We could well be looking at above average inflation even 2 years from now if we get a sharp downturn from these early rate rises and central banks get spooked and make the rate raises much more gradual. Either way, there's no data recession has even started yet, so the real economic pain is yet to begin. Even when inflation peaks, prices being 9% higher than they were a year ago when wages haven't risen anywhere near that much still hurts, then you can add people losing their jobs because economic output is down and there's less demand for labor.

First of all it was a SEC not FED. Second they did it to protect stupid. naive bastards from sinking more money into this unfathomable, suspicious pit and they sure did prevent any future losses for anyone who was unable to put more money in their mystery box and is now sitting comfortable and unrekt. So instead of withdrawing your money from the mystery box like a sensible person you left it in out of greed and you blame the SEC (well the FED actually lol) for trying to protect people from getting themselves in this exact situation you got yourself into on your own volition. This is truly a masterpiece of mental gymnastics.

This is true for sure, but they won't heavily purchase assets which are in bubble territory if retail is dumping. It doesn't make sense, sounds more like wishful thinking. Bro no one really knows what is gonna happen next, but inflation is actually accelerating. The big money will be affected by this, because the FED will have to act and big money will make a safe bet on the rates, not buying crypto.
