In the summer, Taleb said in an analysis dubbed the “Bitcoin Black Paper” that bitcoin wasn’t a currency, a store of value, an inflation hedge, or a haven from government tyranny or catastrophe. He has used Twitter to amplify his view that bitcoin is a fragile bubble built on speculation instead of genuine value.
