The biggest break-trough for cryptocurrencies will be when the first country will accept BTC or smth. for tax payments. Which country do you think is the most "open minded" to make this possible?

Well Japan officially recognizes bitcoin as legal tender. So it means that it is like fiat money for Japanese public. The privilege follows the implementation of a new law in Japan which categorizes Bitcoin as a legal payment option within the country.

I agree here. People are biased alredy, they don't want to spend coins because of a fear that in the future Bitcoin will be much more valuable.
Bitcoin community is suffering from our own 'Bitcoin Pizza' syndrome.
I don't think this is a problem at all.  If people don't spend it, that just makes their dreams of price rises come true - there's less Bitcoin being thrown into exchanges and the price stays propped up.

People hold fiat and don't spend it sometimes as well.  Some people hold millions in fiat.  It just means that people get better off by holding Bitcoin.  Good for them.

i am agree too, even people hold their bitcoin and their money, i don't think that bitcoin price is also gets stagnan because i am sure that in out there especially in the market, there will be many traders that trading bitcoin no matter bitcoin-fiat or bitcoin-altcoin. i think it is a good news for us and maybe korea will approve bitcoin in their country so bitcoin will be spread in korean and korean people can use bitcoin with safe.

South Korea’s central bank has published a new working paper analyzing a dual-currency regime by pitting cryptocurrencies against traditional fiat currencies. Fiat currencies have been historically known to decrease continuously, the authors confirm, due to inflation and the factor of new money pumped in to the supply by the central bank, also known as quantitative easing. Bitcoin, in stark contrast, has a fixed supply which would imply a “deflationary bias”, the authors note. However, security or trust issues – the decentralization of digital currency and the absence of insurance provided by governmental authorities – may prevent digital currency from being used as a store of value. Instead, digital currency may be used as a medium of exchange dominantly.

Do you agree with this research result?

Yes absolutely I do. It’s a very detailed and critically analyzed report. According to the report instead of inflation there will be deflation in the bitcoin I guess all those will agree with this that are connected to the BTC.

They have raised an issue of decentralization with no government insurance so in my point of view it is such a strong currency with all it characteristics that it don’t need to. The governments may not prefer to keep it as a security but people are.

Im with them with their research as they are all right about making Cryptocurrency as a medium of exchange. Also South Korea is mostly a credit card dominant country nobody really needs to convert their money to Korean Won as almost always they accept Credit Card payments even the little shops. Adding Bitcoin into the scene might add another option for us tourist when going there, also it may actually boost the tourism itself. Koreans are actually thinking ahead aside from thinking the negatives of decentralized currency.
Not only you and your country, I am also with them as they try to make crypto currencies as they medium of exchange! Fiat currencies are too expensive, risky and venerable for looters. If any country can adopt crypto currencies as a medium of exchange then the sky will be they limit. However majority of the third world countries will benefit from bitcoin as dollars exchange is want keep them poor.
When you declare anything as a medium of exchange it means that you are making it money and money can be stored for the value that it has. It may take the governments for the acceptance of the crypto to deal in instead of the Dollar, but it will take decades for it and I am sure the bitcoin prices will be touching the sky at that time.

Nothing new.The central bankers still think that decentralization is a problem.It`s not...
We don`t need a government to secure the currency.If the people trust a currency,they will use it without
premission from the government.
Yes exactly the bitcoin is too strengthen that id don’t need any security of the government. In fact there are the governments that came to it and accepted it because they know it better that the future is of the bitcoin and the alts will also survive with it.

No one is asking from any sort of security for the crypto the only demand of the people who have adopted the Bitcoin is to accept it as a legal currency. The government is why not adopting the crypto for the moment only is due to certain legal issues i.e. the major government agreement are for the fiat stuff and it will take them to switch.

The outcome of this report is very on point which is something that have been subject to discussion even on this forum several  times. Bitcoin has its advantages which has equally enumerated but the concern is the regulation as well the security because his do a company guarantee my returns if I keep my btc with them? In a case where there is crash in the price of bitcoin how do they even account for such losses? How do government even regulates the activities of such entities considering the anonymity. These are issues that are very much valid in which I believe are still standing in the way of bitcoin.

Not at all. The majority of people I know that use bitcoins don't spend them ever or rarely spend them. I don't have anywhere local that accepts bitcoins and I don't trust online stores that accept them, so it's almost exclusively a store of value for me.
It totally depends on the region you are living in to. In Europe & America there are lots of places where you can spend the bitcoin. Even it has started in Japan. There are the websites who accepts the Bitcoin and you can buy anything from there. I do agree that it is a store of value for many people and looking at the current situation people are storing it for the reason that its value is going to be increased.

@mynhpark ,i think digital exchange will be dominant in the near future. but not now maybe. because not all countries will see these as to what south korea have seen it. but there will always be a room for adaptation. if central banks of the world will really research for this and find something more beneficial from this, then maybe that is the time that digital currency will be dominant.
Yeah, the South Korean provided a shelter for the Bitcoin and the rest of the Digital currencies to be used as a medium of exchange. It is also a challenge for the economists to play their role in the development and adoption of the crypto currencies for the betterment of their countries. Also the research clearly predicts that the coming age is of the digital currency and digital exchanges.

Correct money needs to fulfill both options, money can be spent but it can also be saved, and the fact people save bitcoins is a good sign since that shows they believe in bitcoin and its long term prospects.
