Imagine you could divide a pizza into 8 billion slices. Would you be able to feed the world with that pizza? By the logic of infinite divisibility = not scarce, this should be a way to solve world hunger.

I guess it’s kind of true. No matter how high the price goes you can always buy some. It will never be “sold out”. The only difference would be how much you can get for your money.

The more you divide an asset, the closer to zero you get.

The more fiat you print, the closer to infinity you get.

That which constantly divides itself in half can not equal zero.

tldr; A Twitter user recently tweeted that Bitcoin is “scarcity and divisibility are not two sides of the same coin.” The term scarcity is used in the context of total supply, specifically when total supply is relatively finite. Divisibility, on the other hand, is something different altogether. Bitcoin’s value will continue to grow thanks to its immense scarcity and its growing desirability as money.

A single pizza can’t feed the whole world.

7. Keith_Kong says:

If you multiply everyones Bitcoin number by 10 everyone still has the same percent of the total supply. They simply have more units. That is essentially what you are doing when you add more divisibility to Bitcoin (say allow sats to divide into 10 parts).

Anyone who cannot see this is… well.

Thats someone who needs a more physical or visual example or something.

Just because you can cut up a bar of gold into many small gold nuggets doesn’t mean you have more gold.
