6. CONCLUSION An understanding of the apparent convergence and necessary divergence is now complete, and with this new upside-down and inverted point view of the financial system the alternative title to this report can now be read at the bottom of the references page. In concluding this report it appears necessary to provide some words of warning to those who would dismiss this analysis. The current reality is that most people do not own bitcoins. Therefore, if the market value of Bitcoin continues to divergently converge toward the S/F model, then there will soon be a time when the majority of the global population will be put into the position of making a hard choice: commit all of their fiat-denominated assets to an investment in Bitcoin, or see their relative socio-economic standing diminish as the ratio of the number of bitcoins they can purchase to the total of 21 million falls below the ratio of the fiat value of their fiat-denominated assets to the total global fiat money supply. Given the current state of Americans’ finances, a state in which many people find it difficult to spare $400 for an emergency, it is unfortunate that this fate might befall so many people as they remain ignorant of the global transition to the hardest sound money that humanity has ever witnessed. Therefore, an effort ought to be made to educate friends and family about the principles of sound money as well as the trends that we can see in the data. Optimistically, I think most people, when provided with unbiased data and sound reasoning, can make an informed decision to protect their livelihood. AJC 10 REFERENCES 1. Ammous, Saifedean.
