As central banks continue to print money like there is no tomorrow, DOUBLE DOWN talks to Plan ₿ about the case for bitcoin in which the inflation in new supply has just been cut in half. Plan ₿ looks at the stock to flow ratio in order to price the value of bitcoin. Stock to flow ratios are used to evaluate the current stock of a commodity against the flow of new production and is most often used when determining the value for precious metals like gold. For store of value commodities, like gold or bitcoin, a high ratio indicates that they are mostly not consumed in industrial applications and, the higher the ratio, the more scarce.
