Cryptocurrency vs dollar. What awaits the world and how to behave in Russia?

52
Recently, the Minister of Communications and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation Nikolai Nikiforov said that Russia will launch its cryptocurrency. A conditional “crypto-ruble” may appear even before the arrival of the new 2018 year. At least, experts talk about this. There is no doubt that the decision was made at the highest level: apparently, this is an initiative of Vladimir Putin himself, who is very attentive to digital currency. Thus, in one of the speeches, the president acknowledged that “virtual currencies” have already become in some countries a valuable means of payment and an important investment asset. At the same time, paying attention to all the risks associated with the use of cryptocurrency and, above all, its “Western designs”, Putin noted that it is important for Russia not to create completely unnecessary barriers that may hamper the development of the cryptocurrency market.


Interestingly, the president’s position on cryptocurrency is much more “advanced” than many other federal officials, primarily from the Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Russia. It is known that Elvira Nabiullina, who heads the Central Bank, likes to compare cryptocurrencies with the financial pyramid and is convinced that the legalization of cryptocurrencies in Russia is completely unnecessary. The head of the Central Bank even threatened to prevent the very possibility of settlements in cryptocurrency. In her attempts to prevent the free circulation of cryptocurrencies, Nabiullina even began to refer to the “hot” risks that the cryptocurrencies and the anonymity of the ongoing transactions supposedly reveal - the financing of terrorism, money laundering. The anonymity of transactions is one of the main circumstances, the alarming representatives of the Russian authorities in cryptocurrency and cryptocurrency transactions. Rather, it is in the first place, since terrorist organizations existed and were funded a century before the advent of cryptocurrency.

Interestingly, even in the Ministry of Finance, whose officials were also very critical of cryptocurrencies, they recently talked about the need to develop state policy on cryptocurrencies and promised to develop a law regulating the purchase and circulation of cryptocurrencies, as well as registration of users interested in acquiring them. This was recently announced by Finance Minister Anton Siluanov himself, and his deputy, Aleksey Moiseyev, spoke a bit earlier about the need to regulate cryptocurrency as a financial asset.

Although representatives of both the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank are quite skeptical about cryptocurrencies, it would be foolish to deny their growing importance in the modern world. Even the head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, stressed that in the modern world, cryptocurrencies in the future can push out the dollar and the euro. The prospects for cryptocurrency in developing countries with unstable economies are especially great.

Cryptocurrency vs dollar. What awaits the world and how to behave in Russia?


By the way, many developing countries have already understood this very well and are already starting to legalize cryptocurrency operations in their jurisdictions. Also, Christine Lagarde advised states, their banks and financial departments not to ignore the continued spread of cryptocurrency. She drew attention to the fact that with the advent of blockchain technologies, it became much safer to carry out operations with cryptocurrencies. The interest of the business community in cryptocurrency is growing, and accordingly, it no longer makes any sense to consider them exclusively in the categories of financial pyramids or speculations.

It seems that some countries are acting quite in the spirit of this wish. For example, Ahmad Al Mulla, who chaired a conference on blockchain issues in Dubai, stressed that by the 2020, the emirate of Dubai (United Arab Emirates) plans to transfer all transactions to the blockchain, becoming the first blockchain-the-world state. This process was initiated by Sheikh Hadan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum himself - the heir to the throne of Dubai, a modern and "advanced" man. In Dubai, they expect to transfer over time the entire government document flow to the blockchain. Representatives of the emirate of Dubai consider this technology the safest and most suitable for modern society.

Interest in cryptocurrency is fed by many other states. In cryptocurrency operations, they are attracted by the possibility of investing in their own economy. For example, in Japan, in March 2016, the cryptocurrency was legalized, and Bitcoin received the status of legal tender. Legalization of cryptocurrency was carried out through the following steps: 1) registration of operators engaged in real currency exchange cryptocurrency services, 2) separation of cash and cryptocurrency assets management and implementation of an audit to protect the rights of both buyers and sellers, 3) streamline cryptocurrency taxation. The last moment is also interesting. The fact is that now in Japan, cryptocurrency transactions are subject to value added tax, if cryptocurrency is used as a means of payment. If the cryptocurrency is simply changed to ordinary money, then the tax for this operation is not charged. Determining the status of cryptocurrency in Japan has already yielded results - numerous investors were drawn into the country, new projects began to open. It is clear that the economy of the Rising Sun only benefits from this.

Some countries have decided to enter the "world of cryptocurrency" very bizarre. For example, the Melanesian state of Vanuatu has long been inviting anyone to buy their citizenship for 200 thousand US dollars. But now, in order to attract potential citizens - investors, the government of Vanuatu has decided to sell the country's citizenship for bitcoins. To become a citizen of Vanuatu, you have to pay roughly 44 Bitcoin. By the way, there is nothing funny in the idea of ​​obtaining citizenship of this exotic country - firstly, Vanuatu has very low taxes that can attract businessmen, and secondly, the country has a visa-free regime with 113 countries of the world. Citizens of Vanuatu do not need a visa to enter the EU countries. What the "Ukrainian patriots" dreamed of for so long, the citizens of Vanuatu have a priori. With Russia, by the way, Vanuatu also has a visa-free regime.

Pavel Durov, the founder of the most popular social network “V Kontakte” and the equally popular Telegram messenger, called Bitcoin a chance to free the financial system from the hegemony of the United States. At the same time, he criticized the position of the Russian government, which is fighting cryptocurrency. Although logically, digital currencies that compete with the dollar, on the contrary, are beneficial in the economic confrontation with the United States. By the way, the United States is unlikely to tolerate for a long time the uncertainty associated with cryptocurrencies, and the strengthening of their positions on a global scale. Most likely, in the very near future, some steps will be taken in the direction of tightening control over the situation. It is unlikely that the American financial circles will go to the prohibition of cryptocurrency, since the situation has already gone too far, but to leave everything as it is, no one will. After all, the fact that the cryptocurrency threatens the dollar’s ​​position is not a joke.



Russia, declaring the upcoming appearance of “crypto-ruble”, seems to be in line with the latest trends. But the way our officials see crypto-ruble leaves too many questions. Minister Nikiforov, in particular, stressed that mining (i.e., “growing”) a crypto ruble would be impossible. In addition, total state control over the issue and circulation of cryptocurrency “made in Russia” will be established. By the way, the emergence of a crypto-ruble Nikiforov urged not to associate with the legalization of cryptocurrencies of foreign origin - Bitcoin and others, since the latter are based on foreign cryptography. If the characteristics of a crypto-ruble will really be as voiced by the minister, then in this case the question is inevitable, can one even consider crypto-ruble a cryptocurrency? This question is being asked today by many experts, considering that the decision that was made regarding the launch of a crypto-ruble was dictated more by political considerations.

Cryptocurrency specialist and co-founder of Descrow project Anton Mitrokhin says that in the modern world there is a huge amount of cryptocurrencies. With all the differences they have one task - to become a new, full-fledged, means of payment. Cryptocurrencies have different status in different countries of the world - in Japan they are considered to be full-fledged means of payment, in the emirate of Abu Dhabi are considered as a commodity. The state of Vanuatu offers to buy its citizenship for bitcoins.

Can a cryptocurrency replace the dollar?

- Now everyone recognizes the fact that cryptocurrencies have a commodity ability to exchange. Some experts recognize cryptocurrency and an equivalent substitute for the national currency and the dollar as well. Therefore, it is already safe to say that the replacement process is underway. And as soon as the main problem of cryptocurrency is solved - liquidity, then there will be an abrupt increase in the use of cryptocurrency in the calculations.

And what will this bring to business and national economies in general?

- The use of cryptocurrency offers very extensive opportunities. Starting from simplicity and accessibility, and ending with international business cooperation on more transparent terms than current ones.

Why, then, do governments and banks oppose this?

- Classical regulators, first of all, central banks of different countries of the world, are very opposed to the proliferation of cryptocurrencies and are doing everything possible to prevent this. After all, they lose their power, because their printing press is no longer needed by anyone. Although if you take the example of Japan, there is an excellent symbiosis between the monetary authorities of the country and the blockchain. If we recall the Emirate that I have already mentioned, then its representatives are now consulting with Japan on the exchange of experience in regulating the cryptocurrency turnover.

At the same time, the ambiguity of the official status of cryptocurrency in modern Russia creates many obstacles to the development of investment. This is reflected in the national economy. Indeed, while the status of cryptocurrency is not regulated, many are skeptical about it. Professional lawyers also have no unity in opinions, but they agree on one thing - the lack of certainty in the status of cryptocurrency is already becoming a big problem.

Andrei Lisov, a lawyer in civil matters, believes that the lack of legal status of cryptocurrency in the Russian Federation is a serious obstacle to investing in cryptocurrency and in ICO platforms.

Although in a number of states the status of cryptocurrency has already been determined, Russia has not yet made a formal decision in this direction. If cryptocurrencies do not have legal status, then all transactions and operations are outside the legal field, at least until the authorities settle the issue either with official legalization or with the prohibition of such operations, says Andrei Lisov.

By the way, this circumstance pointed out by Lisov really plays a very important role in the fate of cryptocurrency operations in modern Russia. Many investors still do not risk investing in cryptocurrencies, for fear of a complete ban on cryptocurrency operations as one of the most likely scenarios for the development of the situation with virtual finance. The lack of legal status attracts fraudsters to the cryptocurrency sphere, and although many projects do everything possible to ensure the security of cryptocurrencies, the legal status would not be redundant.

The lawyer, managing partner of the Center for Legal Relations Ivan Hapalin is convinced that a quick resolution of the cryptocurrency status problem will benefit the Russian economy. After all, legal cryptocurrency operations are quite serious revenues to the budget in the form of taxes, not to mention attracting investments. The same Japan only benefited from the legalization of cryptocurrency. It is important to use the experience of other states, but to be guided by the interests of our country, domestic business, says Ivan Khapalin.

By the way, Boris Titov, representative of the President of the Russian Federation for the rights of entrepreneurs, also spoke about using the Japanese experience in regulating the cryptocurrency market. Titov believes that Russia will greatly benefit if it becomes a country open to cryptocurrency operations. It is likely that this may indeed be the case, especially considering that so far only some countries of the world have decided on such a risky step. It requires the most serious attention of government structures to the issues of introducing cryptocurrencies and blockchains into the Russian economy, with the miscalculation of all possible risks and possible benefits from this. Who knows, maybe cryptocurrencies will really press the American dollar over time?

            how is she evaluated

            Bitcoin is in the region of 4 thousand dollars. While it is not so much spinning in the world, something comparable to the volume of the state of Bill Gates. Just there is a sighting and unobtrusive teaching of humanity to the idea that this is a full-fledged payment unit. If the mattresses really thought about replacing their 20 trillion debt with cryptocurrency, then at the current rate, the debt should be divided into 4OOO, and then expand the course to the “necessary”, in order to distribute bitcoins to the “happy” creditors and manage to make sure that they still will be due to the USA.
            As for the benefit of the national cryptocurrency for the state, here surely there is + the fact that this money taken as a loan for the construction of a conditional object, it will be impossible to withdraw over the hill. And it will be easier to lend to them than the same dollar, which today is limited by the time of return as a result of sanctions.

      That is the whole point! For example, would the ruble be secured for the exchange of gold, even if it is a small piece of metal by weight, and where would this inflation be, this state-approved way of robbing the population? After all, no matter how much they talk about the fight against inflation, it is very beneficial to the state and government, and is supported artificially. You can print insignificant paper as much as you like. If she does not have collateral, then there are no restrictions. But this is not beneficial to those in power, and this is the main problem on the path to adopting the gold standard. The economy has been translated into ephemeral plans of being with these futures, doujons, and other crap, so convenient to financial tycoons, and completely divorced from real life. Alright grumbled, I'll go count the shares of the hopper-borber invest ....

We find that entire social groups suddenly turn their eyes to a single goal, pursuing which they go crazy; that millions of people simultaneously fall for the bait of the same illusion and chase after it, until some new stupidity attracts their attention, more tempting than the first ...

          The `misconceptions` and` madness` set forth in the book relate to the chronic `diseases' of mankind. The financial pyramids, the corruption of power, the falsification and self-deception of imaginary healers and prophets - all this was, is and will be.
          This book has been reprinted dozens of times in many countries around the world and has become a desktop for several generations of financiers, businessmen, politicians and all those who seek to understand mass psychology. "

This has already happened with MMM shares. The mechanism is this: it is provided with information hype, its quantity is limited, the one who bought it is ready to sell it only with profit, so it will only grow. As soon as the obvious conflict between the owners of the dollar begins, the euro and bitcoin can all burst!

    Cryptocurrency as a commodity is not bad. Will hold back inflation. And stop the growth of financial bubbles.

    But the unlimited growth of the types of these units will nullify international integration.

    It’s like breaking the standards.
    For example, international thread standards. And some decided to release their threaded connections. And who will feel better from this?

    But seriously, read K. Marx and his friendship. The principles of the emergence and circulation of money are well disclosed there.

      But the bonus you get in the summer will not be so frying from the computer at the feet and it will be quieter.

      And about faith, it is better not to believe;)

      Yes, cryptocurrency is not made from air, but is made from advanced technologies and hydrocarbons.

      For ordinary people, but I have a suspicion that somewhere outside the ordinary people there is another Fed station;)

      Well, the very idea of ​​money for exchanging goods is not a bit suitable for cryptocurrencies.
      It turns out that the same bitcoin is not money already, but the goods, and it is extremely useless for the population, except for hucksters and currency speculators.

      this is what can be reduced to a method of obtaining cryptocurrencies. And for some reason I believe them ...

      Yes, of course, cryptocurrency mining methods are born from the work of people, the job is to view advertisements, make custom logos .. etc. But this work is comparable to bonuses in the game. You sit for many hours at night and “earn” in the end, you can equate earnings to the cost of the Internet spent. The excitement so far increases the value of the earned bitcoins. When the market is saturated, everyone will dramatically deplete. For example, I played tanks, bought premasters that were in the hangar and no one needed. There are 40 thousand rubles there. sad

    In economic articles on the VO, statements constantly skip - dollar paper controlled by the US Federal Reserve, the Russian ruble is a derivative of the US dollar, the states control the global economy, as they can print green wrappers. A crypto currency has appeared that is not controlled by anyone! Panic again! request Since she appeared, it means someone needs her! But prohibitions, as well as sanctions, can not achieve anything good. hi

      Yeah! In any case, this is a pyramid. Very thoughtful, multiplied by stupidity, misunderstanding and greed of people. the question is how long is this a long-term project? I don’t exclude that it is either a parallel yuan or a parallel dollar

    As I understand it, GDP is a supporter of the use of blockchain - but without mining. That is, blockchain will most likely be provided by special state funds. enterprises that ensure round-the-clock operation of the protocol, but private participation in this state mining is not provided, as well as remuneration. This is new and interesting. There seems to be mining - and it seems not, but the blockchain protocol works. In my opinion, the idea is a breakthrough one. Wait and see.

      State money in the form of a “blockchain” is a terrible evil — for it will not be your money anymore, you will not be able to freely dispose of it like cash, a state, a bank or someone who will have access to this at their whim can block any unit of your crypto- of money. Blockchain is the foundation of a system of total identity control under construction.

          Why did I write? A “protocol” is not “cash” and implies only “electronic” money — that is, either a card or an “electronic wallet” —that is, a rigid link to the “owner” —and no freedom that “depersonalized” simple money gives.

            This is not electronic money, it's about the blockchain protocol - verification of transactions. Get to know the topic better, then write. It's about how to use the protocol - but without rewards. This is the difference from cryptocurrencies. And you won’t leave anywhere from electronic money - the number of purchases with their use is growing year by year. This may or may not be pleasant - but such is the reality.

    The most honest thing is to evaluate all goods and services in consumed electricity !! good Indeed, if you exclude the "self-growing" types of agricultural crops, ALL has its "cost" in energy, so why not "evaluate" in electricity. A less universal value and read even the most reliable, much more reliable than even gold.
    After all, bitcoin is a fiction. And kilowatts of petarism are “gasoline from oil”, they are different “goods from plastic”, and despite the fact that nowadays “additive technologies” are gaining momentum, there are just three things that will be valuable: energy, consumables for “3D printers” (and not importantly plastic or cement) and "printing programs." And then petarism, as a “calculated value characteristic,” becomes very important.
    But even here we are returning to our perverted reality and the geeks who are not “virtual money” and governing the World will never go to not recalculating the real economy into something real, because then all of their “reserves” and all their power will instantly evaporate. Then there will be not “financial” Power over the World, but Industrial. Well, who will voluntarily give up the Power, even if it "stands on clay feet"? sad

    It is believed that the "cryptocurrency" was created exactly like the "pyramid" - and now its "value" is supported by several exchange players. More than a hundred cryptocurrencies have already appeared and appear almost every day. Cryptocurrency is really purely "ethereal" not even "money" - and it is unclear that somehow it has no value other than speculative. Allegedly, the initial value of the cryptocurrency is laid during its mining and it is calculated according to a cunning formula that takes into account the cost of developing software, equipment, expended electricity, time, dragging to the exchange, services of brokers, etc. And this initial cost is "cheap" - everything else appears if this " the currency is "picked up by" suckers "- the more suckers they start to believe in it and are interested in it, the higher it starts to cost. That is, the purely "speculative" price of this "nothing" begins to grow. And the fact that there is really “nothing” —that is beyond doubt — this is the currency- “air” that cannot even be touched, the value of which is not provided by the gold reserves of the state, but is ensured only by the “faith” in it of a large number of people, and therefore this is the most real "pyramid".

      If you remove the words "you can’t even touch", then you wrote about the dollar wassat The dollar is not secured by gold reserves, and it exists only because a large number of people believe in it! Still believes hi

    Cryptocurrency INSTEAD dollar
    . This is how it will be right and no articles on hundred signs are needed. The same virtual, unsecured equivalent in no way tied to a real product. Due to the fact that the Americans do not want to give up control of the Internet, to regulate the virtual price of virtual currency is the ultimate goal of globalists. Then you can overestimate external and internal debt by a couple of transactions and all USA debts can be written off without war.

    If before, money was equivalent to a product. Now what? If the state used to print money, now who? I can also produce bitcoins on my computer. And then who will produce the real product? I don’t understand something.
