For instance, about This is a cap set by the computer program that manages the supply of the currency. Scarcity by itself is not, however, enough to create value—there has to be demand. Since cryptocurrencies cannot easily be used to make most payments and have no other intrinsic uses, the only reason they have value is because many people seem to think they are good investments.
If that changed, their value could quickly drop to nothing. Bitcoin is now seen as the granddaddy of cryptocurrencies, and investors or speculators, more precisely are piling into other cryptocurrencies such as Dogecoin. And there is no clear constraint on the supply of these coins, so their prices surge or crash on random events such as tweets from Musk.
For all its flaws, however, bitcoin remains dominant : It accounts for nearly half of the total value of all cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are not backed by anything other than the faith of the people who own them. The dollar, by contrast, is backed by the U.
Investors still trust the dollar, even in hard times. As one illustration, domestic and foreign investors continue to eagerly snap up trillions of dollars in U. Treasury securities even at low interest rates. New cryptocurrencies called stablecoins aim to have stable values and therefore make it easier to conduct digital payments. Facebook plans to issue its own cryptocurrency, called Diem , that will be backed one for one with U.
But the value of stablecoins comes precisely from their backing by government-issued currencies. So while dollars might become less important in making payments, the primacy of the U. Cryptocurrencies may or may not persevere as speculative investment vehicles, but they are triggering transformative changes to money and finance. As the technology matures, stablecoins will hasten the ascendance of digital payments, ushering out paper currency.
The prospect of competition from such private currencies has prodded central banks around the world to design digital versions of their currencies. The Bahamas has already rolled out a central bank digital currency, while countries like China, Japan and Sweden are conducting experiments with their own official digital money.
The dollar bills in your wallet—if you still have any—could soon become relics. Even transactions such as buying a car or a house could soon be managed through computer programs run on cryptocurrency platforms. Digital tokens representing money and other assets could ease electronic transactions that involve transfers of assets and payments, often without trusted third parties such as real estate settlement attorneys. What can crypto do for your company? Users often represent a more cutting-edge clientele that values transparency in their transactions.
Introducing crypto now may help spur internal awareness in your company about this new technology. It also may help position the company in this important emerging space for a future that could include central bank digital currencies.
Crypto could enable access to new capital and liquidity pools through traditional investments that have been tokenized, as well as to new asset classes. Crypto furnishes certain options that are simply not available with fiat currency.
For example, programmable money can enable real-time and accurate revenue-sharing while enhancing transparency to facilitate back-office reconciliation. More companies are finding that important clients and vendors want to engage by using crypto. Consequently, your business may need to be positioned to receive and disburse crypto to assure smooth exchanges with key stakeholders.
Crypto provides a new avenue for enhancing a host of more traditional Treasury activities, such as: Enabling simple, real-time, and secure money transfers Helping strengthen control over the capital of the enterprise Managing the risks and opportunities of engaging in digital investments Crypto may serve as an effective alternative or balancing asset to cash, which may depreciate over time due to inflation.
Crypto is an investable asset, and some, such as bitcoin, have performed exceedingly well over the past five years. There are, of course, clear volatility risks that need to be thoughtfully considered. Back to top. To ready itself, the corporate treasury might consider several preliminary issues, including: What does the company want to achieve by adopting the use of crypto? What steps has treasury taken to acquire the necessary know-how to receive, monitor, and manage a crypto payment?
Does Treasury think the company should maintain custody of the crypto itself or outsource that to a third party? What measures are in place, or what thought has been given, to possibly investing in crypto as a new asset class? What adjustments does Treasury foresee in anticipation of the eventual issuance of digital currencies by central banks? Treasury will be inextricably involved in these decisions, and the changes they require, since: Traditional treasury groups maintain the financing relationships for the company e.
Treasury determines which types of banking and financial services—now in a potentially broader and bolder digital asset ecosystem—corporates will need. Consult your legal counsel to determine whether any license will be required to enable the transmission of crypto.
That plan should include, but is not limited to, these types of questions: What is the overall strategy? What are the short-term and long-term objectives? What partners, internal and external, does the company need to involve? Can leaders identify effective champions for the effort across the enterprise, in all relevant departments? Will the decisions and actions the company takes now allow for flexibility and scaling of efforts later? How can the company integrate the security needs of operating in the digital asset ecosystem with existing security and cyber efforts in the company?
How does the company implement the introduction of crypto? What resources will the company need above and beyond those it currently has? What new expertise might it need? What will the implementation road map look like? How will the company evaluate progress as it implements?
Does the company have the necessary processes in place to monitor the execution of transactions and vendor performance? What does the final state before launch look like? Contact us First name.
