Digital Economy

Digitalization of world economy, shift to cryptocurrency As the world economy becomes more and more digitized, cryptocurrency will become a major, mainstream medium of financial transactions. Do you agree with this statement and why/why not?        The rapid development of the cryptocurrency market has raised questions about whether cryptocurrencies will challenge the existing order of traditional financial institutions or is it just a temporary trend.  Today, opinion remains divided but I believe, digital currencies and decentralization of finance are the destined future for the world.  There are lots of questions remaining to be answered, yet they have to be discovered first. Currently, 92% of the money is digital, therefore I can’t find any reason but not to believe cryptocurrency will become a major, mainstream medium of financial transactions. Despite, the concept being introduced a few years ago, digital currencies have been supported by both public and private actors. The interest in digital currency has been rapidly increasing, since its announcement, and now it is expected to be the main financial transaction method.  The medium of financial transactions has been already shifted to the digital medium with credit cards, however, what we are witnessing is a shift towards decentralized finance. One fundamental reason for the popularity of digital currencies is because it transacts through decentralized financial mediums. Decentralized finance will keep growing, as long as the internet exists,  and will adapt itself according to consumer demand. Since the cryptocurrency system is collectively produced, decentralized finance is much more responsive than centralized finance.    To support my point, the paper will be comparing centralized finance and decentralized finance, evidence and data will be presented while comparing both financial systems. Advantages and disadvantages regarding both of the systems will be highlighted to support decentralizing digital finance as the future of finance. Other than that, there will be a SWOT analysis conducted for the cryptocurrency market, to have a better understanding of its returns and risks. The analysis will conclude by arguing, digital currencies will be the popular financial transaction method. Aim: This paper aims to analyze the resiliency of cryptocurrencies and to determine whether or not they are likely to become a permanent financial system in the future.            Thesis:    The paper compares current financial systems with decentralized finance to explain the potential of digital currencies to become a permanent medium for financial transactions. Additionally, this comparison reveals the main difference of cryptocurrency in terms of usage, legal point of view, and popularity.
