Head of Bundesbank Proposes Digital Currency To Compete With Bitcoin

Head of Bundesbank Proposes Digital Currency To Compete With Bitcoin

Jens Weidmann, the head of Germany’s central bank Bundesbank and one of the most powerful bankers in Europe, proposed the development of central bank-issued digital currencies to compete with Bitcoin.

 

Weidmann argued that Bitcoin could potentially worsen future financial crisis due to its decentralized nature and the non-existence of central entities within the Bitcoin network.
