Dorsey Says Bitcoin Will Replace The US Dollar

Recommended Posts


Ex Twitter boss says in exchange of tweets that Bitcoin will someday replace the dollar. 


As a reply to the rapper Cardi B, asking if crypto would ever replace the US dollar, Jack Dorsey, who recently left his role as Twitter boss to concentrate on his other company Square, said: “Yes, bitcoin will.”


This is the first time that Dorsey has actually stated his view that Bitcoin will replace the dollar. Up to now he has always stopped short of uttering such a belief.

The exchange of tweets included many replies from both sides of the fence. It is well known that central banks are worried about the growth of cryptocurrencies, and the effect they may have on the stability of the fiat monetary system.

To this effect, one Twitter user replied:


Another user tweeted an opposing view:


A very polarised view over whether Bitcoin will replace the US dollar is certainly out there. However, a lot of analysts, even from the crypto camp, don't believe that replacing the US dollar is the job of Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is generally seen as an alternative to gold, as a safe store of value. The slowness of its blockchain, even with the implementation of the lightning network, would suggest that Bitcoin is nowhere near becoming a usable reserve currency.

Be that as it may, there are developments within the crypto space that could be put forward as future viable mediums of exchange that could replace fiat currencies.

Governments and their central banks are eyeing the crypto space with some trepidation in this respect, and it may well be that regulators are tasked with making sure that private crypto assets do not get in the way of centrally controlled digital assets.

    • 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.
