IMF Chief Economist: Digital currencies will not challenge the key role of the US dollar in global trade

According to CoinDesk, Gita Gopinath, chief economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), said that digital currencies will not challenge the key role of the US dollar in global trade. She believes that although cryptocurrencies represent "fascinating possibilities", they lack the infrastructure to replace the U.S. dollar as a currency and a globally recognized global reserve currency. Gita Gopinath wrote in a column: "Payment technology Progress has not solved the fundamental problem of becoming a global reserve currency. The status of the US dollar is supported by the system, rule of law, and reliable investor protection provided by the United States. "
