Who Is PlanB?/PlanB Wiki

PlanB is a cryptocurrency investor, financial analyst, and cryptocurrency advocate. He maintains anonymity online, with his real identity and background being unknown.

PlanB appears to be male, based on the (audio) interviews he has done, and has stated he is from the Netherlands (see below).

PlanB is best known for Bitcoin Stock-to-Flow (S2F) model and Stock-to-Flow Cross Asset (S2FX) model, both intended to quantify the value of Bitcoin (especially in the former), as well as other assets (especially in the latter).

 

Bio And Background

Little is known about PlanB. On his personal website, he claims to be a former investor from the Netherlands:

PlanB@100trillionUSD is a Dutch former institutional investor with 25 years of experiences in financial markets. He has a legal and quantitative finance background and has always been fascinated by modeling risk & return. In March 2019 he created the Bitcoin Stock-to-Flow (S2F) model where he uses scarcity to quantify Bitcoin value. A year later he introduced the Stock-to-Flow Cross Asset (S2FX) model, which includes gold, silver, diamond and real estates. He is now primarily focusing on Bitcoin valuation models, on-chain analysis and investment strategies.

He explains the reasoning behind his name and Twitter handle @100trillionUSD as follows:

PlanB refers to an alternative plan for quantitative easing (printing money by central banks), negative interest rates and currency debasement in general. 100trillionUSD is a reference to the Zimbabwe 100trillion dollar note during the 2008 hyperinflation.

In May 2020, Cointelegraph wrote that PlanB was planning to “go dark” if his Bitcoin predictions ever came true:

I will go dark if the model is successful because if the model is successful, it will not be a pretty picture.

It will be nasty, it will (be) maybe war — people have Bitcoins, some people don’t have Bitcoin, it’ll be some countries have Bitcoins, some won’t have Bitcoins, it will be the U.S. dollar losing its reserve status, it will be geopolitical, it will be military.

PlanB stated that he would maintain his online presence if his model proves to be incorrect.

 

PlanB’s Stock-To-Flow And Stock-To-Flow Cross Asset Models

In March 2019, PlanB introduced Bitcoin Stock-to-Flow (S2F) – a model that predicts the value of Bitcoin. The model’s predictions are based on the concept of scarcity, with scarcer assets being more valuable. In this sense, the model treats Bitcoin similarly to scarce resources like gold or silver.

The model is based on the hypothesis that scarcity drives value. Scarcity (or SF) is defined as the ratio of an asset’s current stock (reserves) and its flow (annual production):

SF = stock / flow

S2F has been rather accurate as of late June 2021. In April 2021, Forbes called S2F one of the most accurate price prediction models in crypto in existence. At the same time, PlanB acknowledges that Bitcoin’s scarcity and issuance schedule aren’t the only reasons for its value increase.

Forbes writes that PlanB tested the model with ten altcoins but could not achieve accurate predictions.

In June 2021, Roger Ver’s Bitcoin.com reported that PlanB had published the worst- and best-case scenarios for Bitcoin in 2021$135,000 and $450,000 respectively.

In April 2020, PlanB introduced the Stock-to-Flow Cross Asset (S2FX) model. Based on S2F, S2FX includes gold, silver, diamond, and real estate.

 

PlanB Net Worth

The exact net worth of PlanB is unknown. In March 2020, he was featured on Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano’s podcast where he claimed to be part of an investment team that managed approximately $100 billion in assets.

Online Presence And Publicity

PlanB is present on Twitter under the handle @100trillionUSD.

PlanB has been featured on the podcasts of a number of prominent entrepreneurs and cryptocurrency investors, including Preston Pysh, Scott Melker, Anthony Pompliano, and Raoul Pal’s RealVision. A full list of his podcast appearances is available on his website.
