Title: Can Bitcoin and FIAT co-exist? What will be the advantages then?
Post by: yaphetSGG on October 17, 2018, 06:44:51 PM
FIAT money is our daily currency which has been existing here for hundreds of years, when crypto currencies like Bitcoin is squeezing their way up to become a world currency and sort. Can they co-exist? If so then what benefits we can get from them, altogether? Not separately.

Well, if only to trade on the exchange cryptocurrency, and change to Fiat. Since the volatility of the cryptocurrency is now insane, and you can make good money. But as used in everyday life, I don't know. People will get used to electronic money for a long time, and especially to the cue ball. Fiat habitual, easier, it is easier to calculate

They can exist, but separately. As today.

Now there are many ICO projects that implement the relationship of fiat money and cryptocurrency.

Paper money must exist in conjunction with cryptocurrencies.

Don't they co-exist now? Who says that bitcoin will become global currency? (yeah people open same and same threads but sometimes OPs start with different sides). Can you tell me how will bitcoin handle so much transactions when billions of people will start to use it? What will happen once mining ends? How will it become global currency when some businessmen mine bitcoins? Don't get lost, if you are really interested in this task, answer to my questions.

I think in the future it will be so. fully fiat force out cryptocurrency can not. at least in this generation. After all, most people of the age do not want to understand what a cryptocurrency is and they already live well with fiat money

Fiat is the globally accepted currency, and bitcoin can not replace it, neither was it created to.

Both are coexisting at this point in time. Bitcoin is for the more adventurous people who can venture out of the assumed safety of fiat to try out this new technology.

Bitcoin is still at its early stages and has lots of capacity to grow. But we are not ready to let go of fiat, not anytime soon.

They will definitely co exist like they are co existing now. There is no issues between these two types of currencies. The conflicts are created by the powerful banking lobby because they can foresee a threat to their business.

Since centuries, banking system is controlling the monetary system but with the introduction of crypto, the controlling power is being shifted to the hands of common people. That's the only major difference in crypto as compared to the current monetary system.

The way crypto is progressing, banks will eventually have to jump in to tap that market. Probably we are not seeing that change now, but in next few years, banks will have to start offering such services just to survive in their business.

It will only benefit the consumers like us due to the competition crypto will create in the economical sphere. Remittances and cross border trades will be simplified and less time consuming with the adoption of cryptos into mainstream economy. However, there are lot more benefits it can offer which is not possible to cover within the scope of this thread.

Now bitcoin and Fiat coexist.And no one has any problems.If we consider fiat money and bitcoin as a use in everyday life, then a significant advantage in this situation will be the convenience of withdrawing big money through bitcoin to the territory of another country.

Well, unless Bitcoin is really popular and dominates the market. Traditional currency and traditional trading methods have long been available. Obviously, flat money is easier to use and more transactional than Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is too unstable to be able to dominate the market, it must exist parallel to the flat.

Yes they can. Advantages is that people have more options on which to use. Restaurants can give choices to their customers on how they would like to pay; via Bitcoin or via cash. Aside feom that, money transfer and remittances will be more convenient.

It is possible, though only to a certain extent. Fiat would still be widely used on day-to-day transactions whereas bitcoin can be used for purchases across borders. It is also possible to hold bitcoin reserves for a small nation, and the implementation still depends on the country's needs, of course. While I expect a lot of things for bitcoin, I don't expect that it will replace fiat in any way.

Can they co-exist?
We are living in the modern world and you spend cash to your things and I do spend it as well. I'm into crypto and so you are so what do you think about that? they are co-existing right now so that answers your question if there's a possibility if they can exist together, of course they can.

If so then what benefits we can get from them, altogether? Not separately.
We have another medium of exchange.

In today's world, fiat and bitcoin are walking side by side. Now  we can buy bitcoin using fiat money. But bitcoin is a challenge to fiat money. So there is less chance to work together because if people use bitcoin, then there is no need to exist bank in this world.

do paper file system and databases co-exist? Sure.
Though one becomes more common than other with time.
I guess same will be the case with fiats and cryptos.

Fiat is the globally accepted currency, and bitcoin can not replace it, neither was it created to.

actually Fiat is local not global. for example you can't go to a supermarket in US and pay with Indian INR although everywhere in the world they recognize INR you will have to convert it to local fiat of that country to be able to use it.
but bitcoin IS global which means if you go to US or India you can use the same thing and pay similarly.

I think Satoshi's view on this was for Bitcoin to be a alternative P2P payment option. He knew that governments will never abandon their precious Fiat currencies, so he developed something that would provide an alternative option for Fiat currencies. He just made sure that his payment option were not controlled by any government or financial institution, like Banks.  ::)

When we look at Bitcoin now, we see that people are not using Bitcoin as it was meant to be used. <Centralized services are dominating the payment scene> Examples : Payment processors / Exchanges / centralized wallet providers.  >:(

Already bitcoin and fiat currency are co-existing, they are not operating in isolation. We cash out most of our bitcoin as fiat through our fiat bank account. Any country that the fiat and bitcoin are not co-existing are in big problem. Though later when bitcoin is widely used and accepted we can exist without fiat.

Well as of this moment they are both existing. Fiat as a tool that measures the bitcoin and bitcoin being a coin for exchanging or having fiat. They are both benificial in a way that those two helps everyone in doing transactions. But then with bitcoin transactions made easy.

Bitcoin can only exist in conjunction with fiat. In another way, he will not walk in the world. These currencies also cannot replace each other. If they walk at the same time, they will complement each other and everyone will benefit from it: people and states.

The price of Bitcoin is highly volatile and that is why it is difficult to use it in everybody life. While it is a good source of profit, Diat-currency is easier for daily use. So, in a way, it can be said that both of the coins are already co-existing to some extent.

Both co-exist at this point in time. As there is a lot to consider such as, if and when billions start using bitcoin can it handle the load of that many transactions together? Bitcoin is still in its early stages and it is too soon to tell if people will be willing to let go/stop using Fiat. Only time can tell.

Fiat money for domestic needs and cryptos for overseas transfers. With all methods of existence, cryptos are cheapest way to transfer overseas (whether it be small or big amount).

I think it will be possible, because right now let's see that bitcoin is seen a few years back and it is still up and down and we can only understand that it is still running. , look forward to more clarification on it.

yes, they will co-exist for a few decades more, I guess. As already almost every country has digital transaction systems, they will also issue their own crypto and fiat will go absolute in age.

Hello,

Of course they could and will exist together. They have different purpose and different use. For me they are complementary. Even the best crypto will never totally replace the fiat that countries will want to keep. Crypto give good alternative when you want to have more liberty. But as soon as you live in "real" world you need standard fiat for day to day life.

Both of this exist today and we can observe this thing to happen. We can conclude that they both have potential but time will come that these two will be a competition in which the wil fight into being a currency. They co exist today but in the future someone will be gone.

Yes. Why couldn't they co-exist? They do currently and in fact likely always will. Bitcoin has become more of a speculative asset like a digital gold and that's why most of the money is going into it right now, so this is like asking can fiat and gold coexist. As for bitcoin being a currency one of my personal visions for it it to become some sort of "world currency" and hopefully it will, but right now most of the interest is coming from investors, but hopefully that will change over time and it starts to be used more as a viable currency.

Becoming a world currency Bitcoin BTC can only be a crisis announced by the IMF.

If we recall the fall of the Turkish lira, after the US sanctions,  it caused a stir on the local stock exchanges.

Trading volumes on Turkish crypto exchanges increased significantly when the Turkish national currency reached record low price marks.

Coexistence is the most probable outcome. Some people think that cryptocurrencies will take over and kill fiat but you can't kill something that is forced upon people by their governments. You can weaken it but removing it completely is almost impossible and I don't think that governments will adopt cryptocurrencies and stop printing fiat.

Nope. Well, there indeed were some examples since 11th century, but the era of domination of fiat money came in 1971 when Nixon decided that backing up dollars with gold should go away forever. The whole name comes from  Latin 'fiat' which is like 'let it be/ it should be', so the nature of this infinite money having value because the government says so is revealed. Can cryptos coexist with fiat? Sure, but they'll probably inevitably replace the latter because of many problems the potentially infinite amount of money of a certain currency leads to. Cryptos have a new mechanism that allows to make sure the supply is limited, but at the same time not linked to a specific resource, since too much money is needed already and no resourse could back it all up.

For now, Fiat and Bitcoin have long lived together in the exchange market, Fiat currencies are used to exchange bitcoin into real banknotes. So this is very mutually reinforcing each other. Bitcoin without Fiat money will not have a price that will not have value, so bitcoin will remain with Fiat in a very long time.

Maybe next in future if both fiat and bitcoin can be used for daily life, it will not disrupt each other. Because they will have their own user and it all depends on merchant which accept it. But for price, it will make bitcoin price increased.

bitcoin and fiat can absolutely co-exist, and they do. unless governments are wiped off the planet completely, they will always use their authority to control the economy through fiat money.

why would they ever give up that power, with or without bitcoin?

Are they not co-existing now? At least in some countries it does. To be honest, fiat currency and bitcoin can exist together because people need both (or one or the other). Not many people know about the existence of bitcoin or altcoins, and they use fiat currency for that matter. Even those who use bitcoins, we are still using fiat so that's one advantage: having an option.

When we can convert from cryptocurrency to fiat, then I think it can use together because fiat accepts the existences of cryptocurrency although, in some country, the government doesn't make it a legal. But soon, after they realize about cryptocurrency and they decide to use cryptocurrency as a second currency for their country, then we can see bitcoin and fiat will be work together. The benefits of bitcoin and fiat are we can make money which many people want it, and I think people will try to search a new opportunity from cryptocurrency because cryptocurrency offers a new way to make money.

FIAT money is our daily currency which has been existing here for hundreds of years, when crypto currencies like Bitcoin is squeezing their way up to become a world currency and sort. Can they co-exist? If so then what benefits we can get from them, altogether? Not separately.

Of course bitcoin and fiat can co-exist and both will have separate means in real world economy.
Lets say bitcoin can be used in businesses to transact globally without limitations and with fiat we will count and give value to bitcoin in market. Without fiat we couldn't give value to any coin/asset in our daily life

It is possible for bitcoin and FIAT side by side because nowadays everything has been digitalized so that FIAT in the future will probably be digital and people don't need to carry a wallet to store FIAT currency.

Eventually since bitcoin exist as first digital currency and adopt country's  and people in their lives need to buy use fiat usd  to buy bitcoin, that's good sign tie up with bitcoin or cryptocurrency as currency to use daily lives of all people are strongly perfect combination for faster transaction.

We need to understand well they can't ignore fiat to exist as currency.

When you use bitcoin in large transactions it will be convenient. With small transactions it will be inconvenient for you and I follow my fiat transactions more conveniently for their country, most of the time. People still do not believe in bitcoin completely

all governments - as in other matters and individual banks - will not just give up their positions. but if one imagines such a thing - that fiat has gorged in the past, people are less hostile, only crypto remains - the world will probably be much more comfortable.

A future without fiat currency is simply unlikely to happen as governments will strongly oppose this. This leaves the only option: coexistence. And the way I see it, it is very much happening in near future. Bitcoin will be matured once the mining ia done, and will reach a very high stable price. Bitcoin is a complement of crypto currency, it has come up with everything fiat couldn't do.

I think its happening now, we enjoy fiat money and cryptocurrency at the same time and if you see the result right now, we have so much options to transact around the world. Fiat money will stay, it will not die so both of this currency will co-exist and it will help us to live in a better way.

Cryptocurrency attracts many investors because of its technology, and if people continue to support this one soon we will witness a great financial system than can beat banking system, well this is purpose of a decentralized market at all.

Definitely, fiat and cryptocurrency should co-exist as cryptocurrency is not yet a universal currency that can be used globally. In the current situation, we need fiat currency as this is what we are using to spend for the basic commodities and other payment transactions. The advantages of having bitcoin is the investment you had made where it could give sufficient return of investment once it undergo a bullish market and have it exchange into fiat money to be use in purchasing goods that require fiat currency only.

For me,there's nothing wrong having both of them as legal currencies.People will have more freedom to choose what options they will take,either with fiat or with cryptocurrency bitcoin.I think this will create a more stable economical level as this two are already working hand in hand than competing with each other.

Yes.Cryptocurrency is really making its own trademark in the financial system nowdays but we cannot also ignore that fiat currency is still here and cannot be replace as easy as that.I believe that these two will create good advantages if they will co-exist together just like what is starting to happen now.

Bitcoin and FIAT are already co-existing! If you say "legally" I sure think the both can co-exist. But it would depend on what government thinks about cryptocurrencies. Only a few services accept $Bitcoin in its form as payment, for you to pay elsewhere you first have to convert your $Bitcoin to FIAT to make your payments possible! Alot of people who got  wealthy from $Bitcoin wouldn't have been counted as millionaires if their wealth was only in $Bitcoin, so they needed to convert to FIAT for their wealth to be counted.

They co-existed already from the day Bitcoin was created. Fiat currency helps bitcoin and other altcoin to reach their all time high. Bitcoin is virtual money while fiat currency is an actual money and they have different purposes. Not all businesses accepting virtual currency like bitcoin right? To earn using Bitcoin, we convert our fiat to crypto currency. Wait for the value of bitcoin to multiply then vice versa, we convert bitcoin to fiat currency to support our daily needs.

They are existing now together, and it looks like they are doing fine. Currently, Fiat money is for everyday payments, unfortunately, cryptocurrencies are not ready for that. But to transfer a lot of money, through borders, cryptocurrencies are way more effective.

Of course, they will coexist peacefully. Fiat and cryptocurrencies will be soon used together. I suppose, traditional money will not die as well as the cryptos. People trust Bitcoin and altcoins but they use dollars and Euros all the time.

Of course it can. It's already co-existing today, in a way. What will be the advantage? Options. People and businesses will have options as to what to use or accept. For example, when you're purchasing a real estate property or a vehicle, bitcoin transaction could be the perfect payment option for this because it's less hassle. For smaller transactions, fiat will be better. It's a win-win situation, right?

Both will co-exist until all aspects of society become decentralized and digitized thanks to blockchain, crypto, and virtual-work, news, governing, laws, entertainment. This will take quite some time but the shift is inevitable and means a much more peaceful and sustainable existence for future generations.

I think some other e-currencies have been in existence before bitcoin and they have coexsit with the traditional currencies. However all this ecurrency give birth to an end product which turn out to be fiat. the same is happening today. many people end up converting crypto to fiat in order to be able to spend it on thing they cannot buy directly with bitcoin which mean there are surplus of things bitcoin can not buy and i do not think bitcoin will dominate fiat. There are millions of people around the world who do not have access to internet neither of knowing cryptocurrencies. fiat and bitcoin have a wide gap

I think that you can answer your question on your own, if the government sees that it can co-exist with their local fiat currency then I also believe it can co-exist. It simple a lot of countries instead of avoiding cryptocurrency is building up a legal framework or a regulatory framework in order for Fiat currency and cryptocurrency to co-exist in the word. The government's view towards cryptocurrency drastically change and is now trying to exploit both cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology for their own economical growth.

I agree with you that they can be designed to co-exist with some transactions they have the same purpose and for some they do not overlap to their purpose. Example they can be used as options in payments online. But bitcoin can't be used offline so that is where fiat come in. Bitcoin can be used in significant processes.

Isn't it happening already? I mean both are existing aren't they? Though there are controversies (as expected) with cryptocurrencies, this is a normal thing with something quite new. Many were skeptical when cryptocurrency was introduced. But of course, aren't we all when it comes to change? Skepticism only remains until proof of functionality and usage has been made along with education and research. But this process takes time. And crypto is going through that process. As you've mentioned, fiat's been around for hundreds of years. Crypto's been around for barely a decade. So I believe crypto should be given a fair amount of chance to prove itself.

frankly, these two currencies provide tremendous benefits in their fields. Bitcoin can be exchanged with FIAT and vice versa so that giving us convenience can all be used for transactions. Bitcoin and FIAT will still be liked by the public.
