“ Bitcoin , world’s first decentralized cryptocurrency is not only an attractive high return fetching investment, but it is also a potential solution for a global strained financial system” says a fund manager.
According to Rainer Michael Preiss, executive director of Taurus Wealth Advisors, “The current debt-based market with unlimited supply and limited borders, allows for too much quantitative easing, which is behind the problem of too much debt and too little growth. Here is where Bitcoin comes in!!!”
“Governments are potentially having long-term issues with debt repayment, and the world is suffering so much debt. Maybe the world needs an alternative — in the sense that it (Bitcoin) is an asset-backed currency with limited supply,” he told CNBC.
Preiss said, “The technology backing bitcoin (Blockchain) has the potential to go beyond financial markets, into a new social structure, with the fourth industrial revolution and developments in artificial intelligence. Bitcoin is already occupying a considerable position in global financial markets. Bitcoin’s market capitalization overtook Deutsche Bank just as of last week, so that shows you how to some extent the world and things are changing”
Preiss also mentioned concerns about the adoption of the cryptocurrency in Illegal/Criminal activities are valid, but he compared it to the U.S. dollar to explain how not all cryptocurrencies are bad. The dollar is the most common medium for criminal transactions, but it wouldn’t make sense to shun that currency.
“The question that always comes is: Is it a currency?” Preiss said. “Well that’s maybe too limiting — it’s much more than that, it’s actually a token. It’s distributed trust and distributed consensus.”
