Regulatory Clampdown Intensifies Amid Growing Interest in Bitcoins Apolitical Currency Characteristics, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 12, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn – Although the Bitcoin market is now turning relatively bearish amid stabilizing consumer interest and drying up of media coverage, the currency continues to witness improvements in value, albeit at a more sustainable rate than hitherto recorded. As one of the most disruptive forces in modern finance, bitcoin took the financial and monetary system by storm. Over the last four years, strong adoption of the technology by people helped transform bitcoin as the most successful digital currency. A revolution in the concept of currency, and widely touted to be the future of money, bitcoin is currently eliciting a mixture of interest, fevered speculation, intense hype, praise, pessimism, skepticism, criticism, and fear, among governments and individuals worldwide.

The recession played an instrumental role in catalysing the development of the “bitcoin virtual currency system.” The complete collapse of financial ethics and the central banks’ inability to ensure the safety of a country’s banking system and protect the credit rights of the people, brought to fore political corruption, and bureaucratic influence over the financial services sector. The public resentment against the monetary system provided a fertile environment for the development of a monetary exchange system outside the ambit of the current government influenced monetary system and provided the reason for developing a free distributed currency system insulated from government interference. As debt ridden governments begin to utilize private savings, pension funds and bank deposits to pay off debts as evidenced by the “Cyprus Bank Heist”, the bitcoin concept offers the much awaited promise of wealth protection for citizens. As central banks scurry to devalue fiat currencies, bitcoin provides the much required refuge against erosion of wealth and savings. As financial markets obfuscate currency and money math to confuse investors, bitcoin pledges transparency, trust, and confidence. As a panacea for the numerous ailments of the current financial system, the bitcoin currency system has been witnessing massive popularity as the first step forward in the evolution of progressive currency systems.

With current global market stability still continuing to be a challenge, bitcoin continues to proliferate. International efforts to build a stronger and robust financial system, immediately following the 2007-2009 world economic recession, still represents an unfinished priority for governments worldwide. A balanced approach towards instating financial stability continues to elude the European and the US government. In the United States, the decision to raise the debt ceiling indicates failure to curb the government’s spending and debt levels, the long-term implications of which include hyper-inflation and reduction in the value of the dollar. In Europe, continuous intervention of the European Central Bank (ECB) to bailout distressed member countries in addition to raising the risk of hyperinflation also increases the risk of migration to other safer investment options like gold and bitcoin. With governments across the world printing paper currency to increase the flow of funds in the economy in a strategy popularly called “quantitative easing”, the resulting inflation and devaluation of money is feeding interest, among staunch supporters, in the revolutionary concept of bitcoin.

China emerged into a leading player in the bitcoin market largely due to the laissez faire approach adopted by the Chinese government. The Chinese government also actively supported the publicity of bitcoin until recently through government sponsored media coverage. The result of veiled recognition and government support of bitcoin was felt across China with the country threatening to possess the ability to potentially change the rules of the game by transforming bitcoin into over a trillion dollar cryptocurrency market. This early Chinese dominance compelled the United States to cautiously soften its regulatory stand to prevent falling back in the bitcoin race. This change in regulatory stand enabled US businesses to help bitcoin make a price comeback post Chinese crackdown. The recent crackdown on bitcoin trading by the Chinese government which fuelled widespread fears of China losing its dominance in the bitcoin game, witnessed the currency bounce back with unexpected vigour. Bitcoin’s successful survival in China marks the resilience of the currency and the ineffectiveness of regulatory measures to quell the currency’s popularity, thus opening up a new epoch in the lifecycle of the bitcoin market.

Bitcoin Buckles Under Tightened Regulatory Vigil, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) May 27, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn – As one of the most disruptive forces in modern finance, bitcoin took the financial and monetary system by storm. Strong adoption of the technology by people helped bitcoin rise to fame and stardom as the most successful digital currency. A revolution in the concept of currency, bitcoin during the initial years of its launch elicited a mixture of interest, fevered speculation, intense hype, praise, pessimism, skepticism, criticism, and fear, among governments and people worldwide. Defined as a cryptocurrency, bitcoin evolved during the financial turmoil of the 2007-2009 period, as a means to enable electronic payments by circumventing financial institutions. Unlike most other virtual currencies which are backed by central banks, bitcoin is backed by technology based trust such as cryptographic proofs. As a decentralized digital currency, bitcoin overthrows the risks associated with intrusive governmental regulatory policies on financial transactions. Unstable global financial markets during the period 2009-2013 therefore played a key role in fuelling the early popularity of bitcoin. As several major economies descended into monetary dysfunction and with fiscal strategies like quantitative easing devaluating local currencies and triggering massive migration of savings to safer investment options, bitcoin witnessed increased acceptance during this period. The then prevailing monetary realism in the world economy and the complete collapse in confidence in government issued currency as a result of the government’s failure to act as a good steward of the currency therefore benefited the early development and evolution of bitcoin.

Following the first few years of extraordinary success witnessed in terms of bitcoin’s dizzy ascent in value, popularity and acceptance, the currency system of late is witnessing a major fall from grace with several developments and events casting a cloud over its future. Key events which have negatively impacted bitcoin include widespread government control, restrictions, and ban as a result of fears over the technology’s ability to challenge the hegemony of state money, and repeated failure of the infrastructure that supports the wider bitcoin economy. The debacle of Mt. Gox attributed to technical glitches stands testimony to the system weakness surrounding bitcoin. The fall of Mt. Gox has dealt a mortal blow to public perception, confidence and acceptance of bitcoin and is likely to derail the development of the market and in the process steal over a decade of advancement and growth.

Widespread government control has also largely impacted the market. An increasing number of governments worldwide are growing wary of the risks involved in allowing bitcoin to be transacted freely in the global capital markets, and are therefore actively regulating and banning the currency. Although in its current nascent state, bitcoin offers no real threat to sovereign currencies and global commerce, uncontrolled and unregulated growth of this nationless currency has the ability in the long-run to undermine the strength, stability and confidence of government issued money. The decision of the Chinese government to regulate bitcoin, for instance, has been a major blow to the market, marking the virtual demise of bitcoin in China, which until now was one of the largest markets worldwide. China’s ban on bitcoin in effect has lowered the potential of bitcoin in terms of its ability to make an impact in the global financial market.

The market in the coming years will continue to be impacted by geopolitical events. Other factors which have impacted the market include volatile fluctuations in value, instances of bitcoin theft, hacking, and use of the currency for money laundering transactions. All of these factors have resulted in a quick evaporation of consumer confidence in bitcoin and the initial unchallenged trust in bitcoin is ebbing out. Bitcoin in short has fallen prey to politics, government resistance to financial innovation, and infrastructure inefficiencies. Although bitcoin in its present incarnation is expected to fail, the technology nevertheless has created a legacy and has paved the way for the evolution and emergence of next-generation digital and progressive currency systems. The potential of bitcoin as being an alternative to fiat money has never materialized and still continues to be an unfulfilled promise, nevertheless, the concept of decentralized trust as epitomized by bitcoin has enormous, untapped potential.

As stated by the new market research report on Bitcoin, cumulative number of Bitcoins in circulation worldwide is projected to reach 18.1 million by 2018.

Major players in the bitcoin ecosystem include CoinTerra, KnCMiner AB, Robocoin Technologies LLC, Cloud Hashing, E-pickaxe, ANXBTC, Bitcoincentral, Bitcoinde, Bitcurex, BTC Markets, Bitfinex, BTCChina, Bitstamp Ltd., BTC-e, Campbx, Digital Future LLC, Huobi.com, Justcoin Exchange, Kraken, MercadoBitcoin, VirtEx, BitPay Inc., Coinbase, Gliph Inc., Coinsetter Inc., TruCoin Technologies LLC, BTCJam among others.
