Cashless societies could promote the publication of government crypto-currencies, according to the forecast of the chief economic adviser of Allianz insurance company Mohamed El-Erian. To CNBC, he highlighted this week, the global Trend of cashless payment. Sweden, especially, was well on the way to a cashless society. State-controlled crypto-currency could, however, play in this transformation an important role. Meanwhile, several Central banks have brought the world attempts to adopt a resolution on the way.
What the Scandinavians already fool, is likely to be the according to expert estimates, in the coming years, the global Trend: With progressing digitalization of cash is loose Numbers on the rise.
While crypto-currencies have been trying for years to be a pillar of this trend, concludes the Alliance chief Advisor, Mohammed El-Erian, whose meteoric rise in an interview with CNBC this week: Digital currencies will play an increasingly important role, however, there is a need for “state control” to take advantage of their potentials. The economic stresses Advisor:
“Is there a future for crypto-currencies? Yes, but the decisive factor [in other], [they are admitted] officially by the authorities. This is something completely different.“
Such supervision could, according to El-Erian currencies in the future accept in the Form of state Crypto-form. While some of the Bank dares to a Central already made the leap to Digital, he doesn’t want to commit to CNBC, however, when this world will be.
“It’s not nothing, what we will see in the next three to five years, [ … ], because human habits and the confidence of the people in the new Medium and the changes grow over night”,
so El-Erian, who was considered the beginning of the year as an important candidate for the Vice chair of the U.S. Central Bank, however, in the case of the nomination by the President Trump the Look.
He holds, however, already in circulation, crypto-currencies little, said the 59-Year-old several times in the past. Most recently, he had spoken about in September of harsh criticism on Bitcoin. In his opinion, would be worth half as much as his course. That Bitcoin would find in the General Public application and acceptance was unlikely.
Global Trend: cashless payment is booming
While Norway and Sweden already advertise, confirm studies: The world is in full speed ahead on a course of cashless societies. The World Payment Report, about attested for the year 2015 will be an unprecedented growth of digital payments.
Here, digital transactions, especially in developing and emerging countries, with a 22 per cent increase would have experienced above-average growth. In developed countries, however, the change would be almost seven percent at a much slower pace.
Among these, the world leader Sweden. In the Land of forests and lakes is currently being made, on average, just under half of all payment transactions are analog. The Rest is digital. But the cash-friendly Germany is not exempt from the Trend. In Germany, the share of cashless payment in 2015 has risen by 8.8 percent and rising.
State crypto-currencies: Economic Ratio instead of a vision of the future
El-Erians future currencies forecast of the state of Crypto as a response to this trend, anything other than out of thin air, prove the Central banks in the world. Around the globe, some financial institutions already made the leap to Digital, your country currencies with encrypted counterparts or play loud with this thought.
Nevertheless, the calculus seems to be crucial in the Vision of the Alliance adviser, to withdraw. Often less future-oriented society, change is in the foreground as a political-economic Ratio.
Prime example of crypto-pioneer, Venezuela is available to all. The controversial crypto-currency, the Petro, which is allegedly held by the state-owned Oil reserves to serve the country in the first place to avoid American economic sanctions.
A similar goal should also pursue the Iran. At the beginning of the year, the Central Bank had in Tehran, the possible issuance of a state-controlled currency to be unfolded. This could help especially in the Wake of international crypto-currencies in the country to mitigate. Bitcoin & co. should have such as BTC, reported the ECHO, in the Gulf country in the face of American sanctions is a decisive part of the devaluation of the local Riads.
Economic Suction use, control
But on the other side of the pond has currencies of the issuing state Digital. The former Governor of the US-based Bank, Kevin Warsh recently in may by the Federal Reserve-issued currency, the so-called Fedcoin. According to Warsh it was the innovation of crypto-currencies to take advantage of and at the same time, the monetary policy authority to maintain.
Further advances, such as the crypto-ruble of Russia, the Turkcoin or the Sovereign of the Marshall Islands, are also likely to pursue short-term goals. So if you want to use here, too, on the one hand, especially the global Boom of virtual payment alternatives. On the other hand, refers to the state of crypto-currencies but as a response to authorities fundamental problematic circumstance.
Because you direct those payments to where he can be controlled. Bitcoin & co. make this impossible.
