However I think Taleb is wrong despite all the grandiose.
Bitcoin can go to zero, of course, but so could every other asset in the world. It's much more likely that an asset with infinite supply like the dollar goes to zero than bitcoin. Supply and demand still applies.
Bitcoin is a black swam, it's antifragile, hodlers have skin in the game, the lindy effect implies that BTC will last at least another 12 years. Only an IYI wouldn't get it.
Bitcooin is exactly what Taleb has been writting about all his life and now that is real, he doesn't know how to react.
I believe Taleb is the real Nakamoto and is sayiing all this to cover it up.
Taleb is a contrarian even to himself and that makes him an anti contrarian.
