The vision of Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, was for a new currency that would be free from the bureaucracy of governments and free from the tyranny of the old world financial cartels. However, in order for cryptocurrency to advance and gain value, it needs to be adopted by the masses of people on our planet Earth. This adoption has come with a compromise to Satoshi’s original vision.
The four major components that are necessary for crypto adoption
are government endorsement, government regulations, the enhancement of the banking cartel’s services utilizing blockchain technology, and national economic failures.
Government endorsement is important because it gives legitimacy to cryptocurrencies. Governments have been hesitant to endorse cryptocurrencies because they are decentralized and not under their control. However, as more and more people adopt cryptocurrencies, governments are starting to pay attention and some are even beginning to endorse them. Government regulations are important because they provide guidelines for how cryptocurrencies can be used. Without regulations, there is a risk of criminal activity associated with cryptocurrencies. Regulations also help to protect investors.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are being adopted by everyday people because they offer a number of advantages over traditional forms of payment. Satoshi’s creation was supposed to free Bitcoin owners from the control of institutions like banks, but instead these institutions are bringing his creation to life. The Premier of Malta recently proclaimed that cryptocurrencies are the “future of money,” and the President of Venezuela has added another incentive for the citizens of Venezuela to adopt the use of cryptocurrencies. Citizens of Venezuela must now pay the fee for passports and passport renewals with the Petro, the national cryptocurrency of Venezuela. The significance of that policy may not be immediately apparent, but it means that every citizen from Venezuela that has the means to travel to international locations will be equipped to purchase goods and services with cryptocurrency.
Venezuelan President, Nicolás Maduro, has encouraged his citizens to be involved with the world’s 6 largest cryptocurrency exchanges that have been enabled to operate within the borders of the nation. Venezuelans are free to purchase other cryptos besides the Petro. Those directives from the Chief Executive of Venezuela have thrust the people of Venezuela into a state of crypto readiness. Making Venezuelans the 1st nationally sanctioned population of crypto consumers, everyone; almost simultaneously, a tremendous accomplishment in the evolution of cryptocurrency adoption. Despite the unattractiveness of the Petro as an investment vehicle, the people of Venezuela are at the leading edge of crypto adoption.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have seen increased regulation in the US and China, two of the world’s most populous countries.
This has caused some roadblocks in terms of adoption for these digital assets. The US has placed limitations on the participation of some crypto products, while China has banned its citizens outright from participating in cryptos. Despite this, the three leading manufacturers of Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) for crypto mining hardware, Bitmain, Canaan, and Ebang, are all owned and operated by business conglomerates based in mainland China.
It is evident that the regulatory environment for cryptos is still a work in progress. The financial market makers of the US are now able to create and offer exchange traded funds (ETFs) based on Bitcoin and other cryptos for the retail sector of investors, referred to as unqualified investors. Unqualified investors are individuals that earn less than US $200,000 a year or $300,000 combined income with a spouse. Or they have a total net worth less than $1,000,000 when the value of their primary residence is excluded. Meetings are continually taking place between market makers and lawmakers on Capitol Hill, in Washington D.C., to help install regulations for digital assets and securities.
Both the US and China are working towards a more cryptocurrency-friendly environment. However, there is still a long way to go before cryptocurrencies are fully adopted by both countries. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have seen a dramatic increase in value over the past year. This has led to increased interest from both investors and regulators. While some countries, such as China, have been moving to regulate the industry, others, such as the United States, are still trying to figure out how to deal with it. This has caused a bit of a problem for market makers, as they are not sure which way the regulatory wind will blow.
This has led to some market makers feeling that they need to take a more hands-off approach when it comes to dealing with cryptocurrencies. This is because they do not want to be on the wrong side of the law if and when regulations are finally put in place. However, this hands-off approach may not be the best course of action, as it could lead to market makers missing out on important opportunities. In order to take advantage of all the opportunities that cryptocurrencies have to offer, market makers need to be able to operate in both regulatory regimes.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have seen a recent surge in adoption rates,
with more and more people using them as a way to store value. This may be in part due to the economic turbulence that countries like Turkey and Venezuela are experiencing. Both of these countries have seen a rapid devaluation of their national currencies, which has caused many people to turn to cryptocurrencies in order to preserve their wealth. While some may view this as a positive development for the cryptocurrency industry, it is worth noting that this adoption is taking place in spite of the fact that neither government has hindered its citizens from making the switch to crypto. This suggests that the vision of Bitcoin and other cryptos as being independent from government and banking institutions is still far from reality.
Nonetheless, the increasing adoption of cryptocurrencies is a positive sign for the industry, and it is likely that we will see even more growth in this area in the future.
