The Finance Prof. Who Says Bitcoin’s Going to ‘Bite The ...

‘Bitcoin will still bite the dust’

Kevin Dowd, Professor of Finance and Economics in the Business School at Durham University, stands by his 2015 paper predicting the failure of the #1 digital currency.
A recent article by CoinDesk discusses research by an economist that suggests Bitcoin cannot survive long term, due to two key factors.
Kevin Dowd reached his conclusion back when the price of bitcoin was less than $400 – but he stands by it now, more than 3 years and 10x in price later. ‘My reasoning is based on two simple economic arguments. The first is that the bitcoin mining industry is a natural monopoly and a natural monopoly undermines bitcoin’s core value proposition. The second is that in markets with zero regulatory entry barriers, an inferior product cannot survive long-term. Either of these arguments is sufficient to produce my conclusion that the price of bitcoin must go to zero in the long term.’
Dowd’s arguments are well-reasoned, as you’d expect. (He’s not the first to predict bitcoin’s demise, of course.) And he states that no one has been able to refute his conclusions. ‘I have also yet to hear a single intelligent challenge to this argument from the bitcoin community. Instead, the typical response has been personal abuse. Name-calling is no substitute for a reasoned response, however.’
