Deflationary Cryptocurrencies Explained - With Examples
Contrary to popular belief, having a limited or fixed supply does not make a cryptocurrency or other asset inherently valuable. Rather, price is determined by both supply AND demand, and assets that are produced in small quantities (limited edition NFTs, deflationary cryptos) can still decline in value if there is no demand. In today's post, we will explain that true scarcity in the economic sense depends on both supply and demand. Further, we will analyze why deflationary assets don't always go up in price. As always, this is not financial advice and is simply a best-efforts attempt to explain basic economics.
