Is President Erdogan so out of touch with what’s happening around him that he declared war against Bitcoin? Or is this a case of “lost in translation” and quotes out of context? An article titled “We are in a war against bitcoin,” says Turkey’s president” has been making the rounds over at Bitcoin-Twitter, receiving both mockery and rightful criticism. However, we noticed a crucial detail: the article doesn’t contain a direct quote from Erdogan. That’s suspect. Related Reading | New To Bitcoin? Learn To Trade Crypto With The NewsBTC Trading Course Armed with an iron will and Google Translate, NewsBTC explored the issue and came to unexpected conclusions. Let’s fall into the rabbit hole. “When President Erdogan fired the central bank president in March, sending the Turkish lira plummeting against the dollar, Google searches for the term “bitcoin” soared across the country.” The tighter politicians squeeze, the faster #Bitcoin succeeds.https://t.co/F9wmVfl06C — Robert Breedlove (@Breedlove22) September 20, 2021 Is It War Against Bitcoin Or War Against Cryptocurrencies? The original article cited a mainstream and generally trusted source, an article in Turkish at Bloomberght titled “Erdogan: We have a separate war against cryptocurrencies.” Reportedly, the president held a Youth Meeting Program, so his audience for this was students from all over the country. They were discussing the Digital Turkish Lira, the country’s proposed CBDC, and one of the participants asked about their current views on cryptocurrencies: “Erdoğan said that they do not have a problem of opening up to crypto money, on the contrary, they have a separate war and struggle against them. Erdogan said, “We will not give them such a premium, nor will we. Because we will continue on our way with our money, which is our fundamental identity in this matter.” He never even mentions a war against Bitcoin. Remember, this is a Google translation and some info might’ve been lost. However, the discrepancies are there. The President says they “do not have a problem” with crypto, but that “on the contrary, they have a separate war and struggle against them.” On the contrary to what? And do notice, it’s not a direct quote either. In the actual Erdogan quote, he says nothing about a war against Bitcoin. We need more data. Let’s consult other sources. Remember, “We, the people”, does not mean “We – the state”. Trying to fight a technology that empowers people is a sure way to be on the losing side of history. — Jeff Booth (@JeffBooth) September 20, 2021 What Did President Erdogan Say Exactly? A quick search leads us to The New Arab. They don’t quote the President directly, but their translation makes much clearer the intent of what he said: “Erdogan claimed that the country “definitely” doesn’t have a problem with the spread of digital assets. However, that Turkey would carry on with its own money, which he believes is part of the national identity.” They don’t have a problem with the spread of digital assets because they’re preparing their CBDC, and their way to sell it is that money is “part of the national identity.” Got it. But, what about this war against Bitcoin thing? A second search leads us to Newsbit, who seemingly quote a much more clear-headed President Erdogan directly: “We have absolutely no intention of embracing cryptocurrencies,” the president replied, adding: “On the contrary, we have a war against them. We would never support cryptocurrencies. Because we continue with our own currency that has its own identity.” Ok, now we know that Erdogan never said anything about a war against Bitcoin and always referred to cryptocurrencies. And that, in code, he was always talking about the Digital Turkish Lira. However, did he really say all that? That quote seems suspiciously close to the original Bloomberg quote, and that one wasn’t literal. If the President said everything that clearly, why wouldn’t Bloomberg quote him? BTC price chart for 09/20/2021 on Exmo | Source: BTC/USD on TradingView.com Time To Consult Primary Sources Luckily for us, Newsbit linked to the Anadolu Agency, a Turkish state-run news agency. This is as close to primary sources as we’re going to get. A report on the whole event that only casually mentions cryptocurrencies at the end. Is the quote present in that report? What did President Erdogan say exactly? Well, according to the Anadolu Agency: “Erdoğan said that they do not have a problem of opening up to crypto money, on the contrary, they have a separate war and struggle against them. Erdogan said, “We will not give them such a premium, nor will we. Because we will continue on our way with our money, which is our fundamental identity in this matter.” Related Reading | Turkey’s Economic Turmoil Shows Bitcoin Is a Better Bet Than Emerging Markets That’s right! The same exact quote with the same exact wording that Bloomberg used at the beginning. So, Bloomberg literally copied and pasted their article. And Newsbit’s supposed quote is just a rewording of that phrase. We don’t know exactly what President Erdogan said, but at least his intention is clear: Yes to his CBDC. War on cryptocurrencies. And we know for sure he never said anything about a war against Bitcoin. Cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin are not synonymous, journalists.

The biggest property developer in China, Evergrande, seems to be on the verge of collapse. They apparently owe $300B. Is bankruptcy on the table? There’s a better question, though. Is Evergrande the only company in the sector with these kinds of debts? Or is Evergrande just a symptom of a widespread disease? And, how does this relate to Bitcoin? Do we present a valid case or are we reaching? Is this “China’s Lehman moment,” as the following Bitcoin analyst suggests? Related Reading | New To Bitcoin? Learn To Trade Crypto With The NewsBTC Trading Course What we know for sure is that “China’s major banks have been notified by the housing authority that Evergrande Group won’t be able to pay loan interest due Sept. 20,“ according to Reuters. Plan B’s comment sets the tone, and the video shows the intensity of the situation: China’s Lehman moment. The money printing will be massive, I repeat MASSIVE! This is good for #bitcoin https://t.co/lAdSMhnk3L — PlanB (@100trillionUSD) September 15, 2021 Check yesterday’s date. Well, on September 15th, 2008, Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy. Let’s quote Investopedia for a quick recapitulation. “At the time of its collapse, Lehman was the fourth-largest investment bank in the United States with 25,000 employees worldwide. It had $639 billion in assets and $613 billion in liabilities. The bank became a symbol of the excesses of the 2007-08 Financial Crisis, engulfed by the subprime meltdown that swept through financial markets and cost an estimated $10 trillion in lost economic output.” Is China living through a similar situation right this minute? How Did China Evergrande Get Here? A few days ago, on September 13th, the South China Morning Post seemed cautiously optimistic about the situation. They explained the root of the issue: “Reports about missed payments to contractors, attempts to reschedule payments on wealth management products, and failure to sell assets have prompted Chinese regulators and the central bank to intervene to prevent a shock to the financial system.” At the time, the big news was that they hired “Houlihan Lokey and Hong Kong-based investment bank Admiralty Harbour Capital to assess its capital structure, evaluate the liquidity and explore ways to ease its current liquidity crunch.” And you know what that meant: “Hiring such financial advisers means Evergrande has come to a serious stage of listing what it owns, what it owes and what are the best plans” to extricate itself, said Lung Siu-fung, an analyst with CCB International. The writing was on the wall. Evergrande price chart on HKEX | Source: 3333 on TradingView.com Where Are We Now? Is China Really In Trouble? Apparently, China Evergrande was caught in a loop. The company was pre-selling apartments and using that money to fund other projects, in which they also pre-sold the apartments and the cycle started again. Evergrande bonds are suspended, and there’s a chance they’re worthless. The stock is near its all-time low, it has lost nearly 80% of its value this year. Completing the story, CNBC informs: “The company warned investors twice in as many weeks that it could default. On Tuesday, Evergrande said it’s at risk of a cross default, which means such risks could spill into other related sectors. Evergrande said Tuesday its property sales would continue to deteriorate significantly this month, adding to its severe cash flow problems.” Is there a possibility that Evergrande’s problems are the symptom of a widespread disease? That’s the $1M question. Is the real state sector really in trouble? For that answer, we have to go to ZeroHedge’s report: “Country Garden, the nation’s largest developer by sales, plunged 16% in the past two days, while Gemdale slumped 12% as a gauge of property shares in Shanghai tumbled almost 5% in the period, with valuations firmly below book value. Following the news, Guangzhou R&F Properties drops 10.8% to the lowest since Dec. 2008 while Greentown China -9.1%. At this point, one can safely call it a crisis.” How Does Evergrande Relate To Bitcoin? China’s Bitcoin policy doesn’t make sense. Regulating themselves out of the leadership position in the most important industry of our times is a hard pill to swallow. There has to be something else going on. We at NewsBTC have been on the case. We explored the Digital Yuan CBDC angle. We looked at ads selling small hydropower stations. We discovered China’s dominance over the Bitcoin hashrate was waning before the ban. And we detailed the so-called new “China Model.” The guaranteed outcome of fractional reserve banking: Impairment of promises. It’s just a matter of when and at what magnitude. The impairment of credit will cascade to other balance sheets unless central planners debase the currency via QE, UBI, and/or debt forgiveness. BRRRRR — Preston Pysh (@PrestonPysh) September 15, 2021 Under Plan B’s original tweet, two comments attract attention. Investor and podcaster Preston Pysh feels that the situation is “The guaranteed outcome of fractional reserve banking: Impairment of promises. It’s just a matter of when and at what magnitude.” And the person behind Documenting Bitcoin goes conspiratorial and says, “They knew this was coming. Perhaps this is why they “banned” bitcoin.” That, as you might imagine, opens a huge can of worms. Related Reading | Since China’s Mining Ban, Bitcoin Hashrate Has Recovered by 68% And Counting Full of confidence, Plan B responds, “Yes, and they closed the exits, typical they always do that.” Bad for the people in China but, in general, bullish for Bitcoin. To recap: the government saw this coming from a distance. They knew the crisis was going to repeatedly hit the country and banned Bitcoin mining to scare the population into not buying the hardest asset ever created. Bitcoin, the true hedge against the collapse of every economy. In any case, the Chinese government will probably try to print its way out of this one. And somehow it’s going to use this crisis to unveil their Digital Yuan CBDC. Does the theory sound coherent to you? Or is there even more to this story?

The development of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) continues to be a hot topic of discussion and for good reasons.

Started by the end of July 2021, the Bank Of Korea central bank digital currency (CBDC) project has been gaining traction. Per a report by the Korea Times, the project will be aided by electronics company Samsung. The company and the financial institution will build the platform that will support the CBDC. In addition to Samsung, the Bank of Korea has brought in other partners from the private sector, such as Ground X, a blockchain-based division from another company called Kakao. The Times cited a source on an executive position to support its claims: Samsung Electronics has recently decided to participate in the BOK-led CBDC pilot project, under which interested parties will research the practicalities of the CBDC in a test environment. Representatives from Samsung and the Bank of Korea have spoken about the benefits of CBDCs and their potential to improve the country’s payment system. The Times claims that Samsung and the Bank of Korea will test the “usability” of blockchain systems on the Galaxy mobile. Specifically, the Kakao consortium and Samsung Group’s two tech affiliates will launch a pilot program aimed at checking on money transfers and remittances between countries, issuing and distributing the CBDC and monitoring how that eventually works in virtual environments. Samsung To Test CBDC Functionality With Its Smartphones? The sources quoted by the report said the project will have two main focuses on the Samsung side: the capacity to conduct payments to other devices and the possibility (…) payments via mobile phones using the digital currency with no internet availability, or to send CBDC remittances to other mobile phones or to other connected bank accounts. The objectives will be carried out by the company’s IT unit and an affiliate called Escor. These entities will handle the procedures for the experiments with the central bank digital currency (CBDC), the Times reported. Apparently, high-ranking officials at the Central Bank of Korea have dismissed cryptocurrencies and their potential to improve the current financial systems, mainly due to the volatility of the assets. However, China’s own digital currency, the e-CNY or digital yuan, has brought concerns to its neighbors in Asia. The development of South Korea’s CBDC will initially operate in a virtual environment during its test phase. Samsung and other partners involved will look for issues and bugs and the technical limitations of the project. Later, in mid-2022 the project will be focused on “offline payments”, e-commerce, remittances, and other applications. The CBDC will allegedly also have advance privacy features developed in collaboration with private banks. At the time of writing, Bitcoin trades at $49,913 with a 2% loss in the 24 hours chart.Read More
