This has the advantage of not cutting Phillips or Christies or Sotheby's in on 15% of the sale price. Not only that you don't have to arrange to "move" the art from one storage facility to another, both of which are off-shore, neither of which you can visit, all of which you're doing to avoid paying import duties and taxes on your investment.
Oh but wait. This is a parody.
The current marketcap of the top 100 cryptocurrencies is 172 billion. By comparison, Apple has $245b on hand and a market cap of over a trillion dollars. Tim Cook could, theoretically, buy all the crypto and have $70b left over.
So do Credit Default Swaps. in 2007 there were $62 trillion in credit default swaps. In 2017 there were 6.
Much like every reserve currency in the world since the Jamaica Accords in 1976.
The problem with uninformed parody is you end up farcically recreating something substantially less insane than the status quo.
