Comparing Fiat and Cryptocurrencies in order to assess their future

 

Introduction

There is a very thin line between a Cryptocurrency as well as a Fiat currency. It is well known that the cryptocurrencies are about to replace Fiat currencies completely, due to its innumerable dominance. Let’s understand the characteristic attributes of each one of them which differentiates them along with understanding their relative strength and weaknesses over each other.

 

  1. Fiat currency is nothing but the traditional currency which we use on a daily basis regulated by the Central Financial Authority of the respective country. On the other hand, the cryptocurrencies are not regulated by any Central Financial Authority but are distributed in nature.

 

  1. The Fiat currencies exist in physical form i.e physical denominations of the currency is available in the form of paper notes and coins. Cryptocurrencies, on the contrary, are completely digital and no physical denominations are available in any form of notes or coins.

 

  1. Due to this physical existence of the Fiat currencies a lot of paper (indirectly trees) along with metals (for coins) are required for its manufacturing, but the cryptocurrencies, since are available only on electronic devices need not require any such natural resources.

 

  1. The main characteristic feature of the cryptocurrencies is its way of creation. The cryptocurrencies are not manufactured in the way the Fiat currencies are done. Cryptocurrencies require complex computations to be done in order to obtain them, through a process called Mining. The Fiat currencies do not require that much amount of electricity. The amount of electricity needed is to print paper or mint coins.

 

  1. As crypto mining requires immense amounts of energy, it gives the currency generated, some intrinsic value. As a creation of Fiat currencies requires a fixed amount of energy, they do not provide that much intrinsic value to the currency as the cryptocurrencies do.

 

  1. Fiat currencies are regulated and distributed by the central financial authority of the respective countries and hence the amounts of Fiat currencies manufactured can be huge, which might lead to its Deflation. But as the cryptocurrencies require complex computations, the amount of cryptocurrencies mined is not under anybody’s control, it is Deflation proof.

 

  1. In the case of Fiat currencies, manufacturing is vested with a Centralised Authority but in the cryptocurrencies, even the creation or mining the cryptocurrencies is distributed among its participants.

 

  1. Nevertheless, both the currencies have similarities too.  They both can be broken down into a number of denominations and can be considered as a store of value.

 

  1. Fiat currencies are regarded as legal tender by all the governments but the cryptocurrencies are not regarded as a legal tender in many of the countries around the world.

 

  1. One of the key upper hand that the cryptocurrencies hold is that they are globalized and can easily be transferred anywhere around the world. But as the Fiat currencies are regional, they are somewhat restricted towards a specific region and one is required to get it exchanged to use them in a different nation.

 

  1. The Governments can restrict the usage of the Fiat ( like setting the maximum withdrawal limits) for their users for a number of reasons, but there is no such restriction in case of a cryptocurrency.

 

  1. The market fluctuations in the case of a Fiat currency is relatively less when compared to that of cryptocurrencies since the cryptocurrency market is not mature enough yet.

 

  1. Both the currencies can be seen standing on the same grounds when it comes to estimating its actual asset value because no asset is used to back them up. However, earlier the Fiat currencies used to be backed up by Gold.

 

  1. Features of a currency like a Durability, Portability, Divisibility, and Uniformity seems to be applicable to both of them quite gracefully. But when it comes to Supply and Acceptability, they seem to be poles apart.

 

  1. Examples for Fiat currencies are Indian Rupee, American Dollar, European Euro, Japanese Yen, etc. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, are some of the most popular examples of cryptocurrencies.

 

Conclusive remarks

It can carefully be observed that cryptocurrencies, on a generalized basis, hold an upper hand when compared to the Fiat currencies and hence seems to have a bright future in the financial sector.

US Department of Justice and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission are setting up an inquiry on the role of Tether in the price manipulation of Bitcoin.

The US Department of Justice and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission are setting up an inquiry on Tether’s role in the price manipulation of Bitcoin during the massive growth of the cryptocurrency last year.

Earlier this year, the department of justice was initiating a criminal probe in the role of traders for price manipulation of Bitcoin in 2017 end when it reached an all-time high of $20000. Now the department is suspicious of the involvement of Tether and Bitfinex Exchange in the same matter. The department believes that the price of bitcoin was forcefully pushed up with the help of Tether Stablecoin.

 

The Investigation

The department is currently carrying out an investigation to determine whether Bitfinex along with Tether practiced illicit trading activities to increase the price of bitcoin. Earlier the US Commodity and Futures Trading Commission was also investigating the activities of both Bitfinex and Tether and now both the departments will together investigate into both the cryptocurrency companies. The officials have not disclosed yet whether the investigation is only on the companies or on the company executives as well.

Earlier this year, a professor of Texas University examined the involvement of Tether for manipulating the price of bitcoin by using trading algorithms to increase the prices. The research disclosed that Bitfinex Exchange uses Tether Stablecoin to buy bitcoin when the price is low using algorithms.

 

Tether Defends

Tether, however, defended themselves by calling all the statements as false. Tether explained that the there is a limited supply of the USDT tokens and that every USDT is backed by 1$ which is kept by the company in their bank account.

What do you think about the above statements in relation to Tether and Bitfinex? Tell us in the comments section below.
