THE CRYPTOCURRENCIES FUTURE
Since the arrival of cryptocurrencies in 2009, they have been increasing in value and more and more companies are deciding to accept and invest in these digital coins. But will cryptocurrencies be the money of the future?
In the beginning, many experts predicted that these currencies would be short-lived, but today there are more than 6,000 different cryptos. With their success, cryptocurrencies have attracted many companies, even those who initially rejected them. Some experts are currently predicting an economy based on cryptocurrencies, but the way in which transactions are carried out today is still based on the use of current forms of payment. However, there are key factors for this new system of operations to succeed in the future at a global level, such as the new regulation or the technological development of money in the new digital era.
Despite the technological factors that increasingly facilitate the use of this new technology, cryptocurrencies still face many challenges, such as high energy consumption (cryptocurrency mining today consumes as much energy as a medium-sized economy), cybersecurity risks, and the instability of cryptocurrency prices.
Talking about price instability, experts indicate that the price will remain stable, although no one can say whether it will be higher or lower than now. Thanks to the new technology, investments, and resources that are being mobilized towards cryptocurrencies, it can be said that it will continue to grow and move towards something new and unpredictable.
What is clear is that the future of cryptocurrencies depends mainly on the investments of large companies, as well as on the development of legislation, which in recent years has taken giant steps forward. But will they become just another investment and support tool in the world of digital technologies? On the one hand, the expectation, and on the other, the doubt about the cryptocurrency as a future means of payment.
In recent years, cryptocurrencies have evolved exponentially so it is very difficult to know what will happen in the coming ones, however, it is almost certain that they will remain in sectors where they provide value and when cryptocurrencies are in reliable, automatic, and secure systems against cyber-attacks, so we will leave behind the monetary system as we know it today.
