English term or phrase: prone to counterfeiting and reduced purity
Kontext: Blog-Artikel, bei dem Bitcoin und Gold als Wertaufbewahrungsmittel miteinander vergleichen werden


When it comes to scarcity or limited supply, demand can quickly increase the value of assets. Both gold and Bitcoin are scarce; however, with Bitcoin, the maximum supply is transparent and fixed. We can’t precisely quantify how much gold is left to be mined, but we know that there will never be more than 21 million Bitcoin.

It’s important to note that the value of both assets could be endangered by future technological advancements that could either make them obsolete or easier to mine. Gold is also threatened by massive deposits stored outside of our planet, but that’s going too far into the future.

It’s estimated that the last satoshi will be mined around the year 2140.

Counterfeit resistance is a self-explanatory term that measures the quality of the uniqueness of a specific asset. Assets prone to counterfeiting carry a high risk of devaluation and often require counterfeit detection methods or tools. It’s very hard to verify the quality and purity of gold, or whether it’s even gold, without the right tools. Physical gold is ***prone to counterfeiting and reduced purity***, while Bitcoin is fully counterfeit-resistant. This is possible thanks to the blockchain network, which verifies and records every mined coin and transaction.

Danke an alle! Ich hab es letztlich so gelöst:

Physisches Gold kann gefälscht oder mit anderen Metallen vermischt werden, um den Reinheitsgrad zu verändern, ohne dass dies bemerkt wird. Bitcoin hingegen ist absolut fälschungssicher.
