Tungsten cube sales increase by 300%, will cryptocurrency cause tungsten shortage?

As practitioners in the tungsten industry and cryptocurrency enthusiasts, you should know that tungsten cube has recently become one of the most concerned topics in the cryptocurrency community.

Tungsten cube is loved by many cryptocurrency enthusiasts because of its larger theoretical density (19.32g/cm3), higher strength and hardness, etc. It not only allows the holder to get a unique feeling, but also has a variety of dings. It can be used as a paperweight or as a holiday gift (such as Christmas Eve, Christmas, Spring Festival, etc.), and can even represent a person's status. What's more worth mentioning is that tungsten cubes that are gilded or engraved (such as blessings, mottos, etc.) and engraved patterns (such as logo) have more collection significance and appreciation value.

How influential is the cryptocurrency community? Will it really cause global tungsten shortage?

China Tungsten Intelligent Alliance(CTIA) believes that under the influence of cryptocurrency traders, demand for tungsten cubes ushered in unprecedented opportunities and even out of stock. According to Bloomberg News, sales of retail tungsten cubes in certain regions have increased by more than 300%. In order to make transactions more convenient and pay tribute to consumers, these regions have considered accepting Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, which means that consumers can use cryptocurrencies to buy tungsten cubes.

In the context of the strong demand for tungsten cubes by cryptocurrency enthusiasts, there’s question is that: "The cryptocurrency community will lead to global tungsten shortage.” This tweet has attracted the attention and comments of many people, but most commenters feel that this phenomenon is impossible because there are more tungsten reserves in the world.

According to data from the US Geological Survey, global tungsten reserves reach 3.4 million tons in 2020, increase of 200,000 tons from 2019, increase of 6.25% year-on-year. According to CTIA, China has the largest reserves of 1.9 million tons, accounting for 55% of the world's total tungsten reserves; Russia's reserves rank second, about 400,000 tons, accounting for 11.8% of the world's total reserves.

In terms of production, global tungsten production reached 84,000 tons in 2020, increase of 0.02 million tons from 2019, increase of 0.24% year-on-year. Among them, China's tungsten production has 69,000 tons, accounting for 82.14% of the world's total tungsten production; Russia's tungsten production has 2,200 tons, accounting for 2.62% of the world's total tungsten production.

It can be seen that huge global tungsten reserves are hard for ordinary people to imagine. As long as the production equipment allows and the product quality is guaranteed, 3.4 million tons of tungsten reserves can produce countless tungsten cubes. Therefore, with the influence of the current cryptocurrency community, world tungsten resources will not be in short supply.
