Correcting a misconception: The cost of electricity to mine a bitcoin does not create a bottom for the price

I've seen a lot of people repeat the myth that the cost of the electricity to mine a bitcoin creates a natural floor for the coin's price. In light of the rapid loss of value and there being nothing to stop this from continuing, I wanted to make sure that everyone who is holding the coin is aware of this so that they at least have a proper investment thesis formulated.

The basic idea that claims the cost to mine a bitcoin has some fundamental correlation to value falls under the Labor Theory of Value, however this theory is a fallacy and does not hold up under market dynamics. Just because a person spends a lot of time or resources creating an object, does not mean that that object has value on the market.

Bitcoin is an adversarial network; by my count there were 68 attempts in the past week to feed an invalid block to my node. There was also an attempt to create 234,512 BTC out of thin air. This is why we don’t trust, we verify.
