I'm I fully tin foil hat or does this look like Ukrain was a bit to create a no win scenario for the western nations?
Edit: the title is a mess, I have a small phone and large thumbs sorry. Putin speaks in 2019 warning the United States to stop extending power, calls America out for using its power to force the use of the USD. https://www.rferl.org/a/putin-slams-u-s-efforts-to-spread-its-jurisdiction-/29986650.html Ukrainian invasion begins and the moment sanctions began Russia moves to secure buyers using Rubles. https://www.rferl.org/a/russia-putin-signs-ruble-payment-gas/31779935.html Ruble now backed by gold https://www.forbes.com/sites/zengernews/2022/05/02/russias-move-to-gold-may-jolt-your-company/?sh=527806ec72e6 Ruble strengthens, country's begin running out of oil reserves and turn to Russia using the Ruble. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-60783874 https://thediplomat.com/2022/06/sri-lanka-sends-2-ministers-to-russia-to-negotiate-for-oil/ Ok so my point on how this relates to Bitcoin. The American dollar is losing its grip, only a bit but it's happening. The dollar is inflating and fast, and non nato country's are slowly starting to back away from the American dollar. Oil is still the main energy source for the world and Russia is primed to become a world competitor for a petrol backed currency except that they are now backed by gold, a harder currency then infinite American fiat. If we see the dollar massively lose strength and prices continue to rise aggresively in USD backed country's where a lot of bitcoin mining takes place, what are the chances that energy prices rise to the point more miners need to shut down? How is bitcoin mining doing in country's like India, China and Russia still? My point isn't to stop buying btc btw, it's that if this whole fiasco was never actually about Ukraine so much as about creating a rift in the oil industry so Russia could set itself up as a world currency competitor why wouldn't they choose BTC, why go back to gold? Also get rid of your fiat as fast as possible, it's going down. And Nato had no choice but to go into the war. They can either not, and Russia would have control of a massive amount of natural gas, oil, and wheat. Or they can do exactly what they did and now looks what's happening. Literally economically lose no matter what
Michael Saylor: "The best currency in the world is going to lose 99.9% of its value over 100 years ... The only reason that you're not panicked in the US is because the CPI is manipulated to create the lowest possible inflation number."
