Many analysts and businessmen refer to Bitcoin (BTC) as an asset that hedges any risks. The same view is shared by Franklin Templeton CEO Jenny Johnson.
In her opinion, the world economy is sinking deeper into a state of crisis. An asset that does not depend on the authorities and is not affected by geopolitical tensions will be able to protect investors’ savings.
Such a tool is bitcoin, said the CEO of Franklin Templeton. In addition, she points to the huge potential of blockchain technology, which will help accelerate the digitalization of all business sectors and spheres of life.
Strengthening the supervision of the cryptosphere will not be able to undermine the position of bitcoin. Soon, the governments of many countries will allow the use of BTC when paying for goods and services. The main advantage of bitcoin is the possibility of its free use anywhere in the world.
This week it became known that for the first time Iran used cryptocurrency to circumvent sanctions. He paid with virtual coins for the supply of imported products in the amount of up to $ 10 million.
However, the authorities of the Islamic Republic did not specify which cryptocurrency they used in this operation.
