As the world grapples with COVID-19, it’s important for investors to understand the effects of government monetary and fiscal intervention, particularly in the context of digital currencies like Bitcoin and the unique attributes they possess. When governments enact quantitative easing (“QE”) and increase the money supply, the associated fiat currency depreciates in value. In contrast, an asset like Bitcoin experiences a quantitative tightening (or reduction) of new supply as halving events programmatically decrease the number of new Bitcoin entering circulation, a feature native to the digital protocol.

In this report, we’ll explore the rapidly changing and unprecedented market dynamics in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, a unique backdrop for Bitcoin’s third halving event in May 2020. Investors must now navigate a new market paradigm, driven by the most aggressive monetary and fiscal stimulus in the last century, let alone since Bitcoin was created.
