Full Show Notes:
How Cryptocurrencies are Disrupting the Global Economy
The digital financial world is changing at such a rate that traditional financial currencies are slowly being forced to rethink their business models. Over the past decade, Blockchain technologies have brought down borders and eliminated the need for intermediaries. Since the birth of Bitcoin in 2009, cryptocurrencies have no doubt had an impact on the way global economies operate. First, cryptos are a viable currency and a form of investment that experts can only compare to gold because, like precious metals, cryptocurrencies retain value with little risk of depreciation. Due to the immense growth witnessed in the cryptocurrency space, there's no doubt that digital currencies are here to stay. However, blockchain products are not limited to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoins and Ether. There exist hundreds of blockchain investment products that range from decentralized finance to non-fungible tokens.
Cryptocurrencies as a Stable Store of Value
One of the major highlights from the economic crash of 2008 was how flawed the traditional banking systems were. It became more evident in 2020, and now more and more people are seeing the need for viable alternatives-- free of government or global interventions.
And that's exactly what cryptocurrencies are all about. They solve the need for a secure, decentralized form of banking that eliminates intermediaries like governments and banks. But why would an individual invest in crypto? For one, cryptocurrencies are a reliable, long-term store of value. Unlike regular currencies, most cryptocurrencies have a limited supply. This makes it impossible for any government or political agency to dilute its value through inflation. Furthermore, cryptos are built from blockchains; thus, government bodies can't tax or confiscate tokens without the owner's cooperation.
The blockchain space is without a shadow of a doubt a transformative industry. Experts agree that blockchains have the potential to disrupt the world in the same way the Internet did back in the 1990s. However, care should be taken before investing in cryptocurrencies because there are risks involved, just like any investment avenue.
