    M1 is composed of currency in the hands of the public, checking accounts at commercial banks, deposit accounts against which checks can be written, and traveler’s checks issued by institutions that are not banks. Current information on M1 can be obtained from FRED – Federal Reserve Economic Data – from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

    M2 includes M1 plus three other types of financial assets. These are (i) savings deposits, including money market deposit accounts; (ii) fixed deposits less than $100,000; and (iii) and retail money market mutual funds. Current information on M2 can be obtained from FRED – Federal Reserve Economic Data – from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

    M3 consisted of time deposits $100,000 and over, repurchase agreements (RPs) larger than $100,000 and longer than one day (called term RPs), and institutional money market mutual fund accounts.

    Sometimes, M0 is used to denote central bank money, which consists of coin and currency in circulation, cash in bank vaults, and balances held in reserve accounts at the central bank by commercial banks and other depository institutions. In the U.S., M0 is called the “monetary base (MB).” Since March 2006, the Fed has stopped releasing information on M3, since “M3 does not appear to convey any additional information about economic activity that is not already embodied in M2… ” The money supply measures are meant to reflect differing roles of money; MI measures money used as medium of exchange, while M2 measures money used as store of value. The charts above show the two money supply aggregates.

    The stock of money in the economy – the money stock – changes from moment to moment, as money is created or destroyed. The aggregates – MB, M1, and M2 – go up or down as their components are increased or reduced. The monetary base (MB), for example, varies as the Federal Reserve buys or sells certain assets, such as Treasury securities, while MI varies as loans by depository institutions – commercial banks, savings banks, and credit unions – are made and paid off.

    Generally, the money stock rises as the economy gets bigger. It has grown by over 800 percent since 1980. The nature of money has changed over time. In ancient times, it was some commodity that had intrinsic value, such as salt, silver or gold. Today, it is mostly entries in the ledgers of depository institutions.

    J.P.Morgan, a U.S citizen and banker, stated in 1912 : "money is gold, and nothing else". It is money, because central banks from all the world, accept it as the ultimate store of value, not from it´s intrinsic value as a commodity or industrial use. History is overwhelmingly, on gold´s side. It´s on the center of the money solar system. It keeps purchasing power over milennia. Jim Rickards and Ray Dalio, supports the idea that bitcoin cannot overtake gold´s place, because central governments holds gold, not bitcoin´s, and because they won´t allow to lose their exclusiveness to issue currencies. (Gold is not a currency, because it doesn´t have any counterparty risk). The dolar price of gold is going to collapse, and so the enormous privilege of U.S to issue the world´s reserve currency (70% of world´s transactions are denominated in U.S dollars). That enourmous privilege won after the second world war and then by winning the cold war, is about to end. In the next 70 or more years, in order to exchange dollars for actual goods and services, the U.S citizens will have to do more than print dollars out of nothing.

    Money is merely a form of intermediation between the production and consumption of goods. People hold a degree of personal monetary liquidity, which, when money is stable, does not vary by much overall. What happens when money is softened due to hyperinflation at the end of a debt cycle? What should the wise consider? Today fiat to BTC conversion is the wisest move for a Black Swan because it can preserve and transform small amounts of monetary energy into something unique.



    Unless you believe in #BTC, you will never comprehend what it is capable of. Non-linear transformation of monetary energy becomes possible and this change will alter your trajectory.

    You’re either walking away from your next ten-bagger or walking towards it. Go to where the real value lies. Make connections. Study to develop insight and instinct. Add value. Get ownership.
