    Hello Ari,
    I listened to your You Tube presentation – very insightful and practical advise.

    I value your view point on the subject of Fair or Intrinsic value of Bitcoin. Do you have any rough estimation of – the average cost of mining 1 BTC or one block? I know, electricity is the major [90%] cost. In my view, this cost will establish an Intrinsic Value of BTC – just like the how much it cost to produce 1 barrel of Oil [$60] or 1 ounce of Gold [$1,200] – it will give us a floor to the price of BTC.
    If you like – I can be reached at Hoping to hear from you.
