When bitcoin exploded onto the scene in 2009, it was hailed by many as the future of currency. 然而, while adoption of bitcoin technology has steadily risen, it hasn’t turned out to be the overwhelming game changer many predicted.

Those were the sentiments of Michael Casey, Senior Advisor to MIT’s Digital Currency Initiative, during the “Bitcoin 和 the Digital Currency Revolution” panel at the 存 Blockchain Symposium.

在会话期间, 凯西和鲍勃·加里森, 存 Managing Director 和 Chief Information Officer, discussed the future of digital currencies 和 blockchain technology.

The notion of digital currency had its first foray in businesses some 20 years ago with the likes of DigiCash 和 CyberCash. The initiatives proved to be unsuccessful as the markets failed to adopt the technology. 快进到今天. The markets are more receptive to digital currencies 和 greater opportunity exists for the technology. That is particularly true where digital currencies can fill a vacuum that exists in parts of the world that do not have the infrastructure that more developed economies have, 凯西说.

He noted, however, that bitcoin’s adoption has been suppressed by reputational issues. “We all know about the Silk Road 和 Mt. 气态氧情况下,”他说, referring to the two black eyes bitcoin technology has experienced in recent years. Silk Road was a dark web marketplace that used digital currency 和 was closed by the FBI in 2013 for its involvement in the drug trade. Mt. Gox was a Tokyo-based bitcoin exchange that crushed investors when it went bankrupt in 2014. “So, it wasn’t hard to see the reason why the adoption of the bitcoin as a means of payment here in the 美国 hasn’t really taken off. But there is a lot of conversation about the rest of the world, 和 that’s exactly the place to look.”

Garrison questioned whether countries could introduce their own digital currency. Casey explained that the idea of central bank digital currency, or CBDC, is already real. He noted The Bank of Engl和 is looking at digital currency 和 the Reserve Bank of Australia has talked about a similar concept.

“The very idea that central banks will effectively be positioned in the competition with private banks, 我认为这是终局, 是深刻的."

Issuing its own digital currency puts a country’s central bank in direct competition with commercial banks. “Why would you h和 over money to a commercial bank with all the risk that entails without any of the benefits?”凯西问. “You’re going to have people looking to store short-term custodial funds with a central bank.”

Symposium attendees shared Casey’s opinion, according to an audience poll. When asked “What’s going to drive change in the adoption of bitcoin?” Exactly 40% said government issuance of digital currency while the consumer market came in second with 26%.

“I think a lot of institutions are failing to recognize that there is a pent up consumer dem和 for some sort of alternative,”凯西说. “What’s also interesting about that, is that what’s driving the dem和 is the recognition that there is now an alternative with central banks. 比特币是另一种选择.”

“The very idea that central banks will effectively be positioned in the competition with private banks, 我认为这是终局, 是深刻的,”凯西说.

The discussion closed with a look at the future applications of blockchain technology. 凯西说 his work at MIT offers insight into the issues 和 problems companies are trying to resolve through blockchain 和 digital currencies. He said MIT has had a number of conversations with outside institutions, 包括私营企业, 非政府组织, 和, 在许多情况下, 政府.

“They’re coming to us with an incredible array of suggestions,”凯西说. “We are talking about using the blockchain 和 some sort of digital currency to manage supply chain applications, the distribution of government welfare in a much more transparent way, making charitable payments over the blockchain 和 creating a one-person, 施行, 牢固的基础设施, 举几个例子.”
