Capriole has developed a model to calculate the intrinsic value of bitcoin as determined by energy spent.

The current intrinsic value based on this approach is close to $81,000. Some highlights of this methodology: - Energy, raw Joules alone, can be used to estimate Bitcoin’s fair value - Increased energy input increases the fair value of a Bitcoin (and vice versa for decreases) - Bitcoin’s price is mean reverting to its Energy Value - The Energy Value model states that if all miners were to stop mining Bitcoin tomorrow, the power input would be zero and Bitcoin would be worthless This approach might be of interest for Pershing Square Capital Management founder and CEO Bill Ackman who turned some of his attention to Bitcoin on Saturday afternoon, cheekily suggesting a scenario in which the price for the world's largest crypto could soar far higher than anyone might imagine. "Bitcoin price rise leads to increased mining and greater energy use, driving up the cost of energy, causing inflation to rise and the dollar to decline, driving demand for Bitcoin and increased mining, driving demand for energy and the cycle continues," said Ackman in a post on X. "Bitcoin goes to infinity, energy prices skyrocket, and the economy collapses," he continued. "Maybe I should buy some Bitcoin." "The problem of course is that it also works in reverse," he later added. https://lnkd.in/eEd7D9gw Source: Capriole.com, Charles Edwards
