Trump is great for Bitcoin. No one wants USD when the US is in a trade war and now he’s criticizing the Federal Reserve. Great for BTC!

If Trump gets re-elected in 2020 BTC is going to do very very well I think. I believe Trumps escalation of the trade wars will be very beneficial for BTC. BTC will thrive in chaos. Who needs BTC if there's no chaos? If there's no chaos then USD will be strong. I like to think of Bitcoin as the anti-USD because they are both competing for the world reserve currency of the future and Bitcoin has a much better chance at dethroning the USD than the USD has at keeping that position. Trump probably hates BTC because it does nothing for the US and he's a nationalist. In fact his trade war isn't just bad for the USD, but it's bad for every countries fiat currency involved which is fantastic news for crypto hodlers. People with a lot of fiat are looking for alternatives and they're likely to buy Bitcoin and Gold in my opinion.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

“I would take my salary in Bitcoin if merchants accepted it.” The way Bitcoin wins is if WE show demand for the merchants who ALREADY DO accept it. 10,000’s of merchants accept Bitcoin, but we can’t find them online. Screw another website tracking price. We need a website that facilitates trade.

If you think that this ecosystem is too big for you to make an impact, you're sadly mistaken. The guy who started Coinmarketcap.com was a college kid living in Brooklyn.

It's up to us to build the future. It's up to us to drive demand. Many merchants offer a discount for paying in Bitcoin – Fuck it, I'd gladly pay 5% more if you let me pay in Bitcoin.

Create a website. Make a little database search. Email merchants asking if they want to be listed.

Get popular, make a millino bucks no problem.

Microsoft was started in a garage. Coinmarketcap was started by a guy who bought a website domain sitting in his bedroom.
