What future for Bitcoin if inflation occurs in 2021?

It’s time to update our “money digitalisation” trend. If everything has taken the direction we anticipated two years ago, [1]  these experiments seem to have a hard time coming out into the open:

. The digital Yuan is in the live-test phase in certain cities, such as Shenzhen – which as pilot-city is highly compatible with this type of experiment – or Suzhou. [2]

. The Libra/Diem-Dollar, which has been trying to get out for months, is still awaiting authorisation from FINMA, the Swiss regulator. [3]

. The digital Euro will be subject to a mid-2021 decision but for deployment 3 to 4 years later. [4]

Meanwhile, inflation is spiking[5] under the pressure of the indebtedness orgy which Covid-19 allowed, giving the West’s modernity gap with Asia a chance to narrow. Western central banks think they can cope with an inflationary trend that they have been hoping for years.[6] But the blow could go faster and further than expected.
