Bitcoin: Crypto-Like Global Monetary System To Be a Boon For BTC

newsbtc

1mon ago

On Friday, the Bank of England’s governor made a comment that was music to the ears of Bitcoin and crypto proponents.

According to reports from Reuters and Bloomberg, Mark Carney dropped a bombshell on a group fo central bankers and press at a meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, stating that he believes that a Libra-like crypto asset is likely to replace the U.S. Dollar.

While he didn’t expound on the comment, he made it clear that the current system isn’t working in his eyes, saying that “in the longer term, we need to change the game”. Carney even explained that he believes the Dollar is playing a “destabilizing” role in the global economy.

Of course, this was not a recommendation to adopt Bitcoin, but it was an acknowledgment that traditional fiat monies are on their way out and digital assets are getting more and more viable.

According to Raoul Pal, the former head of Goldman Sachs’s hedge funds sales division and the chief executive of Real Vision, the implementation of a new monetary system is likely to be a boon for Bitcoin.

In a tweet published in the wake of Carney’s comment, the former Wall Streeter explained that while he doesn’t believe Libra will be the cryptocurrency to become the world’s next reserve currency, something similar will take its place.

Something I have been talking about. It won’t be Libra, but it will be similar (and yes, it’s good for bitcoin and gold). I talked at length on the @HiddenForcesPod podcast about my views on this, https://t.co/VxCM1VCiUN

The implementation of this system, he claims, will be “good for Bitcoin and gold”. In a sub-tweet, Pal further explained his thoughts, responding “exactly” to a comment claiming that a fiat digital asset will as an on-ramp for the cryptocurrency market.

Pal isn’t the first to have mentioned this theory. In a tweet, Jeremy Allaire, the chief executive of Circle, wrote that the launch of Libra (whitepaper) will be a “massive inflection point in [the] global adoption of cryptocurrency.”

It is important to note that this isn’t the only reason why the former Goldman Sachs executive is bullish on the leading cryptocurrency. As reported by NewsBTC previously, Pal claimed that today’s most popular asset classes make no sense for millenials with ten- to 20-year outlooks.

He claimed that with equities and real estate pushing extreme valuations, and bonds posting “virtually zero yields”, the best alternative is something like Bitcoin, which he believes will be the backbone of an alternative/parallel financial system.

Pal added that buying Bitcoin now is like buying bonds and equities in 1982, which is prior to the absurd asset inflation bubble that has inflated since then.
