The Bank of International Settlements (BIS)

The price of BTC and many of the other cryptocurrencies rose in price on June 18, 2018. This was a surprise to most of the market regarding cryptocurrency in relation to the articled published by The Bank of International Settlements (BIS), an organization of 60 of the world’s central bank. The article was published on June 17, 2018 titled “Cryptocurrencies: looking beyond the hype”.

BIS Report

The report looked at the future of cryptocurrency and why crypto will not be mainstreamed like money. Their report focused on “scalability, the stability of value and trust in the finality of payments.”

Some main points for consideration:

  • Decentralized currencies are unstable, once market loses trust in the currencies, the value will drastically drop.
  • Blockchain splits, leading to a huge plummet in pricing
  • Demand for power outgrowing supply in the long run
  • Processing capabilities of the internet not able to keep up
  • Power concentration in relation to mining pools with high processing capabilities
