Let us briefly #Reflect on the #SARB's first #MPC #Meeting of 2020 and their #MonetaryPolicy decision to cut rates by 25bps from 6.5% to 6.25%...
Everyone with some interest in such matters is without a doubt already aware that the #SouthAfricanReserveBank's #MonetaryPolicyCommittee cut its key #PolicyRate, the #Repo by 25 basis points from 6.5% to 6.25%. The move can perhaps best be summarised by the following statement:
It is clear from the statement above that the SARB moved on the back of a growth story. They would want to see the level of #inflation creep closer to 4.5% but they didnt tighten to achieve this end. Rather, they provided more accommodation for growth & inflation might pick up...

Rabobank 1/4: Expectations that the Federal Reserve is on the brink of cutting interest rates combined with forecasts that the Fed funds rate could be significantly lower by the end of the last year have unsurprisingly knocked the USD in recent weeks.
Rabobank 2/4: That said, the outlook for the greenback is complicated by a number of other factors. Firstly other major central banks are also pursuing accommodative policy settings. This should dilute the impact of lower Fed rates on the USD.
Rabobank 3/4: Additionally, slowing world growth and geopolitical risks are likely to stymie appetite for risky emerging market assets. As long as confidence in EM is shaky, there is good reason to expect the USD to find solid support.

Great points on #BitcoinMining energy consumption by @aantonop:
1. Energy used by Fiat #currencies are hidden yet enormous;
2. #Bitcoin incentivises #greenenergy via economic benefits to #energycompanies as a store of value for non-distributable energy.

With Fiat currencies we're not questioning the costs of global payment networks, data centres for payment services providers and banks, their office buildings, computers, printing/minting/transportation of notes/coins and so on. It's taken for granted.
The latter, where unused energy of wind/solar that exceeds battery storage capacity can produce #Bitcoin, thus shortening the return on investment of renewable energy. This return can then be used to reinvest in real energy storage capacity.
