Hello. For what purpose do banks create their own cryptocurrencies?

Hi @DebSchmal,

That is a great question you have asked. Check out this article I found to be interesting, maybe this could answer your question in greater detail https://www.africanexponent.com/post/8920-why-do-banks-create-their-own-cryptocurrencies

Let me know your thoughts on it after you read it.

Interesting twitter thread.

Any move to a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) requires removal of crypto currencies. That is the Rubicon moment: if they kill the cryptos, CBDC comes next.

3 questions arise:
i) What justification would they use?
ii) How would they do it?
iii) What would be the time interval between killing crypto & CBDC?

The justification is, of course, urgent action on climate change: massive & instant carbon reduction from shutting down digital miners is a big win from COP26. They can also cite consumer protection benefits too!

The how is actually quite easy: they announce they're going to kill the cryptos & peeps will be able to claim limited compensation. Everybody sells, value collapses, compo amounts to, what, 5% of pre-announcement value, if that? Govts say, there you go, we said they were risky

As to timing, I think they'll use COP26 for the international agreement to shut down the cryptos. Govts set up parallel structures for the compo from the kill-date, probably 31 December

Finally, the clue to all this is in what they deny: Rishi has denied using Britcoin to replace cash. Not to replace nongovernmental currencies.

The Bank Of Jamaica, in a ceremony, has minted the first instalment of its central bank digital currency (CBDC) JMD on August 10 as it looks set to adopt digital currencies in the coming months.

Essentiall, banks want to have a better control over the country’s circulation and the blockchain helps improve centralized system. China and India seems to be competing against Litecoin but other countries are more interested in working with DeFi in tandem with central banks.

banks need to have their own crypto as the banks know that the young are into crypto.

The world is changing and the young are not into 8-5 but into things like axie game so they can be involve in NFT.

Just google axie scholarship and you will be suprise how many people post their 'resume' on social network to join the axie game.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
