Bitcoin is the bankers’ most discussed topic these days. Sparked by Facebook’s master plan to create their own cryptocurrency – Libra, and the many conversations about legislation procedures, cryptocurrency will be here to stay for longer than anticipated.
Formal European Central Bank (ECB) president Jean-Claude Triched slammed Libra and bitcoin, stating “Bitcoin” is not the future of money, because it’s not real.
“I am strongly against bitcoin, and I think we are a little complacent. […] Bitcoin itself is not real, with the characteristiscs tha ta currency must have.“
“Even if [the cryptocurrency] is supposed to be based on underlying assets, I am observing a lot of speculation. It is not healthy,” Trichet said, adding buying a cryptocurrency is “in many respects pure speculation.”
Although expected to skyrocket its growth, cryptocurrency adoption is still not considered massive. With lack of regulations across different jurisdictions, to a total ban over cryptocurrency, there’s a polar field of opinions that promises a lot more discussions in the future.
Last month’s Bitcoin sudden rally is a result of China’s President Xi Jinping comments about Bitcoin, considering the country should “seize the opportunity” of the blockchain technology.
Jean-Claude Triched’s comments come after ECB president Christine Lagarde warned that crypto is shaking the system earlier this year. This alone can be considered a potential red flag for chage in the ECB’s approach to crypto, bitcoin and its potential adoption.
Lagarde has been criticized for a recent comment of hers, later translated by twitter users as slavery propaganda.
The old mantra to make the tax slaves think they would be jobless without the government protecting them. Propaganda doesn’t work when you’re enlightened by Bitcoin.
