Dt. Bank-Report: from Bitcoin and co. for cash up to 2030?

That change will come is clear. How long it takes until consumers prefer to use BTC as cash? A Report of Deutsche Bank believes.

The report looks at the banking world before the big change

If you look at the efforts of some of the Bank in the area of digital currencies, is increasingly the question: can the Institute of real interest and the realization of how useful the Blockchain for your business areas? Or the banks and lending institutions follow the requirements of the own customers? Finally, only private investors are not interested in increasing for Bitcoin and Altcoins between the Dash and Zcash. In the case of the German Bank, in any case, a recent report under the title “Imagine2030 suggests” at least subliminally, rather the second thought. The author of the new report in Germany’s biggest Bank, is the Bank’s strategist Jim Reid.

Popularity for Token as a means of payment is growing steadily

He comes – to sum it up short and sweet – the result: Within the next decade, by 2030, crypto could replace currencies, in fact, for the Disappearance of the German consumers and to popular cash-to a large extent. Even now, Reid of the traditional banking industry, attesting to the great challenges posed by the rethinking of their customers. Also of institutional customers, which uses step-wise Wallets or opportunities for derivative investments with a crypto-reference search. The Bitcoin Futures of the provider Bakkt be here only as an example of many of the world’s called. The demand for “dematerialised means of payment”, so it looks to be the strategist in his report, is on the rise worldwide.

And this Trend is set to continue. The requirements of the current Fiat System will therefore increase further. In particular, the issue of anonymity and the Report in context, it speaks to a Central role.

Strategic partnerships need to be closed

Practical regulations of the state, stable prices of the crypto market and a “global reach” in the international payment market is defined Reid as the basic conditions for the further acceptance of digital currencies by Bank customers. Possible the implementation of this points to, among other things, through new partnerships, including map of service providers and App-developments to come to be an important task. The report does not conceal the coming dangers such as cyber crime or to the question of the coverage of the high power requirements of digital payment systems. Reid holds a Merge of the banking sector with cryptographic systems to both the private and public sectors-is possible.

In this country, can show up next year, whether the German Blockchain strategy is able to cope with the challenges of the digital change. An important role, without question, to the Supervisory authorities.
