When Wider Economy Struggles Cryptocurrency Will Be Used To Move Value


The crash of the cryptocurrency
did not put an end to the blockchain.  In
the current scenario, the opportunities for blockchain are filled with
incredible possibilities. All industries are looking to leverage the blockchain
technology, whether it be finance, artificial intelligence, finance, or energy.

The IMF had recently stated that
American Economic Expansion is in the face of “unsustainable debt
dynamics” A bear market is surely coming for the USD; however, it is only
about when it is happening.

When fiat currencies falter,
people will turn towards blockchain technology to transfer value across
borders.  When the more extensive economy
struggles, cryptocurrency will be used to move the amount.

E-sports is considered to be one
area which will legitimately accept the blockchain technology. Multiplayer
systems are expected to take advantage of cryptocurrency payment systems. However,
it has been widely seen that the gaming industry has already adopted it to a
greater extent, particularly the blockchain technology.

The US is
currently following a “wait and see” regulatory approach.  Regulators want to crack down on the scam
cryptocurrency projects. They were not interested in standing in the way of the
progress of the blockchain technology though. 
Lawmakers are maintaining their distance as they do not want to make the
wrong move.

governments will have little to do with cryptocurrency, they will have a lot to
do with stable coins.  Each government
will want to have a stable coin. Investors who do not want to completely trust
liberated currencies like Bitcoin will want to invest in stable coins.

technology is too diverse, and it is more than just a cryptocurrency.  The changes brought about by the blockchain
technology are a guaranteed happening. 
However, with cryptocurrency, we need to see how the vast majority are
reacting towards its acceptance.

In the past
couple of years, Wyoming enacted nearly 13 blockchain laws, and a raft of
proposals are on their way.

Lindholm, a state representative, stated, “It’s been good for Wyoming that the
federal government has been proving its stripes of incompetency.”

Facebook has
been recently talking to several companies in a task related to crypto payment
systems.  The company is as well working
with regulators to ensure that they do not get into issues with regulations.

Facebook is
expected to leverage a “tax data honeypot” for many governments to
establish a regulatory border for executing its crypto payment system.  The power of the corporate in the context of
money is heating debates.

Is There a Future for Privacy Coins in the United States? » The Merkle Hash


Cryptocurrencies which provides users with privacy and anonymity are often looked down upon by politicians and other officials. Especially in the US, privacy coins such as Monero and ZCash might face an uphill battle in the future. The most recent White House press conference only confirms these currencies are designed for criminals and no one else. 

The Stigmas Remain

For quite some time now, the term “privacy coins” is associated with illegal activity on the internet and in the real world. This is primarily because of the privacy and anonymity features these currencies tend to provide to its users. In the case of Monero, for example, it is impossible to determine who owns how many coins, or who is sending and receiving transactions. This makes it a thorn in the side of government officials and financial experts, as they only see the negative side of this…

‘I like bitcoin,’ says House GOP leader McCarthy, hits Facebook Libra


House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told CNBC on Tuesday that he likes the decentralized nature and the security of bitcoin.

“I like bitcoin” and the security of the blockchain ledger technology behind cryptocurrencies, the California Republican said, as he criticized Facebook’s plans for a Libra digital coin ahead of hearings on Capitol Hill this week.

Libra will be pegged to a basket of government-backed money, compared with bitcoin, which is highly volatile in price and derives value from factors including its ability to enable instantaneous, anonymous, global payments and as an investment.

Nobody controls bitcoin.

McCarthy did, however, say that bitcoin is not where it needs to be yet, alluding to the risks of cryptocurrencies being used by criminals and money launderers.

While Libra promises more stability, McCarthy remains concerned.

“When I’m on Facebook, I’m not the customer, I’m the product,” he said. “Facebook is free because…
