“Stablecoins and cryptocurrencies cannot replace money”

Stablecoins and cryptocurrencies cannot replace money

President of the European Central Bank (ECB) Mario Draghi shared his views on cryptocurrencies and stablecoins. He believes that these assets cannot replace money.

In a letter to a member of the European Parliament, Eva Kaili, Draghi emphasized that the entire system of European central banks is closely monitoring the development of the cryptocurrency industry.

“We analyze cryptocurrencies and stablecoins to understand their possible impact on monetary policy, security and efficiency of payments and market infrastructure, as well as on the stability of the financial system,” he wrote.

At the same time, despite a positive outlook on new technologies, Draghi believes that stablecoins and cryptocurrencies are of rather low value, although this may change with the development of technologies.

“Stablecoins and cryptocurrencies are quite limited in application. They are simply not designed to make money a suitable substitute for them, ”said the President of the ECB.

Draghi said that the ECB is considering the possibility of issuing a digital form of the euro. At the same time, the technological part of such stablecoin is not a problem, doubts are raised about its usefulness in terms of costs and benefits for the population.
