The author of the article believes that cryptocurrencies can be used to test fiscal and regulatory policies. Although the current cryptocurrency may not be able to replace the US dollar, its positive impact on the existing monetary system can be reflected in three aspects.
First, citizens can benefit from the existence of cryptocurrencies because they offer a variety of options. In addition, private digital currencies can curb monetary policy, resulting in lower inflation.
Second, cryptocurrencies can encourage local investment and complement and not replace it. In the process, it will constrain monetary policy, such as reducing inflation, resulting in a higher return on investment.
Third, the government also benefits from using cryptocurrencies in the local economy because it can earn income through taxation and benefit from local investments.
