In this week’s Crypto Forces segment, host Demetri Kofinas speaks with Gil Luria. Gil is the director of institutional equity research at D.A. Davidson and one of the earliest sell-side analysts to cover Bitcoin. Gil Luria provides us with the Wall Street perspective on Bitcoin. This conversation is also a great complement to our recent crypto forces segment with Andrew Keys. We cover the recent run-up in the price of bitcoin, the economics of bitcoin, and the role that governments and regulators will play in this emerging market. How can we use information about supply dynamics and business cycles in mining to help us determine the fair market value of a given cryptocurrency? What does a business cycle for bitcoin mining look like? How do miners invest in new equipment, and how can overinvestment in mining rigs impact future prices?
