Silicon Valley investor and OpenAI co-chairman, Sam Altman, proposed developing a crypto currency, which will become a copy or “official representative” of the US dollar in the digital world. The name was found quickly – “Americoin”, but with various technical and practical aspects of the introduction of the new currency, various difficulties arose.
The need for American supporters of Altman is justified: the world has moved into the digital age, it's time to say goodbye to paper and metal money. In 2018, the US Federal Reserve spent $ 860 million just to ensure the physical aspects of using the dollar – paper, paint, metals, electricity for printing presses, etc. And how much more is the replacement of old banknotes and problems with fakes? And all just for the classical dollar to just exist.
Virtual dollars are already enough, but they are beyond the control of the state and do not have the status of a national currency. In fact, you just need to gradually transfer all American money into digital format, using proven technology, crypto currency. To withdraw from the population 10% of dollars, to generate as many amerikoyinov and distribute in exchange, then repeat, etc.
But the trouble is, only 75% of Americans have smartphones, and reliable access to the Internet is in 70%. With the software for working with crypto-currencies, chaos at all, the full dominance of adventurers and hackers, who will be happy to arrange a “redistribution of wealth”, using the financial and technical illiteracy of the broad masses of the population. Therefore, it is not necessary to hurry, at least. But it's better to discuss national crypto-currency in advance.js.src = “&version=v2.8”; 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
