Iran has developed a national cryptocurrency secured by rial

Published

on

Iranian authorities have completed the development of a national cryptocurrency, provided by the local rial. Now a new asset is being approved by the central bank of the country. About this in an interview with the local news agency Ibena, said the general director of the corporation Informatics Services (ISC) Seyed Abotaleb Najafi.

According to him, the testing of payments, as well as internal and interbank settlements will be conducted by the country's banking institutions, including through the distributed infrastructure.

CBI is interested in using cryptocurrency to expand the services of the banking system and circumvent US economic sanctions.

"The state-owned cryptocurrency was developed primarily to study the possibilities of digital coins and blockchain technology, to facilitate financial payments and retail banking operations, " said Seyed Najafi.

It is noteworthy that the new asset will be provided with local currency, despite the volatility and the continuing devaluation of the rial. Thus, the unofficial rate of rial fell to 143,000 to 1 US dollar, with the official rate of about 41,000 rials to the dollar.

"In exchange for each coin of the national currency, its equivalent in rials on the central bank account is blocked, so it will never create liquidity, " said Najafi.

Note that the new cryptocurrency does not yet have a name.

Recall that in July, the Department of Science and Technology under the Government of Iran, together with the central bank of the country, began to develop a national cryptocurrency.

In late October, the head of the Iranian Civil Defense Organization, Golamreza Jalali, said that cryptocurrency would help circumvent some sanctions through untraceable banking operations .

The Central Bank of Great Britain for the first time recognized the huge potential of Bitcoin

Published

on

For the first time, a representative of the Central Bank of Great Britain commented positively on cryptocurrency and Bitcoin , in particular.

For a long time, the British financial regulator spoke extremely negatively about Bitcoin and doubted its reliability as a form of capital preservation.

For example, at the end of April, the Deputy Head of the Office for Markets and Financial Affairs of the Central Bank of the Kingdom, Dave Ramsden, reaffirmed the negative attitude of the regulator to the cryptosphere.

However, this week, the chief economist of the British Central Bank Andrew Haldane, during his speech to the students for the first time, acknowledged not only reliability, but also the gigantic prospects of Bitcoin. In his opinion, the largest cryptocurrency will be able to completely replace cash in the next 20-30 years.

Haldane said that he was following the development of the cryptocurrency industry and was aware of the existence of thousands of coins. Nevertheless, despite the fact that for the first time one of the influential employees of the British Central Bank noted the growing value of Bitcoin, the position of the regulator’s management is unlikely to change anytime soon, analysts say.

But it is quite possible that, following the chief economist, many other senior officials of the Central Bank will reconsider their position, and this will create conditions for the British Bitcoin regulator to be fully recognized as a reliable payment instrument.
