Cryptocurrency Adoption by Country | by Igor Davidov

[question] Imagine that a small country adopts Bitcoin as its second currency. What are possible political and economical consequences?

For example, in the year 2018 Singapore adopts Bitcoin as its second currency. The Singapore dollar will remain in circulation, but Bitcoin will become a legal tender too. Governmental banks will start to accept Bitcoin etc.
What are possible consequences of such decision? For the country and for the world.

If a country adopts Bitcoin as an official currency...?

If a country adopts Bitcoin as an official currency, isn't that country just going to have a massive money laundering economy? Or turn into the world's black market central?
I don't know if this is the best place to ask this, but I've been going over the option in my head and I can't see it not turning into a hive of white collar criminals.

Why would a country adopt bitcoin?

Many over in /bitcoin talk about the inevitable adoption of butts by various countries, but why on earth would a country hand over control of its fiscal base to at best a ragtag bunch of ancaps, at worst to a potential 51% attack by China? Surely setting up their own independent block chain with centralised control, or control distributed to authorised entities only is the only sensible way to do things?

If another country adopted Bitcoin as legal tender, would the United States bomb them?

Is the "killer app" actually a country adopting Bitcoin as their primary currency?

There are no shortage of countries with horrific monetary systems in place. They are incompetent, failing and straight up robbing their citizens. Would it be so bad for some of these countries to adopt Bitcoin as their currency? How could it possibly be worse than what they currently have?

If the Central Bank of any country adopted Bitcoin (concept/idea)

I was thinking about a country adopting Bitcoin as its official currency, and then I thought how the Central Bank could print bank notes that actually contain bitcoin in them:
Honestly, I think this is pretty much a decentralized solution because you are only using the money from your country, and you can still run a bitcoin wallet and have your money come from other sources.

Very interesting short documentary about Bitcoin in Argentina 2013. I'm from that country and we suffer from the evil of inflation that destroys our savings every day. That's why I've decided to adopt Bitcoin.

Could Antigua and Barbuda be the first country to adopt BitCoin

Could Antigua and Barbuda be the first country to adopt BitCoin? Or the first to create a national currency token on BitCoin? Or both? Could this be the big news Calvin Ayre has alluded to? Either way, in retrospect, these articles from 2017 are interesting.

In Antigua, meanwhile, Ayre began construction in October of a $25 million call centre, saying it was part of his vision for bitcoin and online gaming. Speech notes provided by Ayre’s spokesman, Pownall, show that Ayre said at a launch event: “I see a growing convergence of Bitcoin, online gaming, virtual reality and gamification technologies, and progressive countries like Antigua are poised to take advantage of this convergence by developing a truly global services industry.”
According to an overview document and presentation slides reviewed by Reuters, in 2015 Wright planned to propose to the Antigua government that the island adopt bitcoin as its official currency. It is unclear which government department Wright approached, or indeed whether he made the proposal as planned. Requests for comment from three ministries in the Antiguan government produced no response.
“Bitcoin is not just a currency,” Wright wrote in his proposal for Antigua to adopt bitcoin. “It's a new backbone and commercial foundation for the internet.”

(Also the authors of this article, Byron Kaye and Jeremy Wagstaff, are also the authors of the soon to be released book - Behind the Mask: Craig Wright and the Battle for Bitcoin.)

If there is no central bank that controls bitcoin, and no monetary policy, then how could inflation be controlled, interest rates be set for growth or otherwise, and how can the currency be stabilized?

Let's suppose that some country adopts bitcoin exclusively, bitcoin value would go up initially due to the demand, and then that country has a terrible economy crash, then wouldn't bitcoin just unravel into possibly becoming worthless?
How could a country such as that kind of give the green light for investment and growth in economic expansion, and then put on the brakes for savings if the economy is not expanding.
Let's say all the bitcoin is mined and accounted for, and it is the only currency in the world.
What do you do, as a country if you want to invest in growth? As it is now, the country can just make new money, and as long as the country increases in worth beyond the value of new money created, then they are ahead of the game.
With bitcoin, I can only see that coming from investors. But at a given point, wouldn't all the money be tied up somewhere?
You'd have to somehow create new bitcoins, to create new worth in the world. But wouldn't that require some sort of central authority?

The entire country of China could be about to adopt cryptocurrency... and it may be bad news.
