Le Bitcoin et la blockchain sont aujourd’hui partout lorsque l’on parle de finance et de flux monétaire en particulier. Cette tendance n’a bien entendu pas échappé au World Economic Forum qui vient de publier un article sur ce sujet et intitulé Bitcoin and Blockchain Leading the Revolution in the Global Monetary System

Cet article fait référence à des échanges qui ont eu lieu lors du meeting annuel des New Champions 2016 à Pékin du 26 au 28 juin dernier. A cette occasion, les diverses discussions ont confirmé le caractère disrupteur de ces technologies tout en rappelant le décollage de la Fintech :

Fintech is growing rapidly because “real problems are being solved for consumers,” reckoned Taavet Hinrikus, Chief Executive Officer of electronic funds transfer company TransferWise in the UK and a Co-Chair of the Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2016. “Companies are making a case for themselves and their sustainable business models.” Solutions such as digital remittances are typically much cheaper than banking transactions like wire transfers and are usually on mobile platforms, which means that they are inclusive and widely available, he added.

Les crypto-monnaies sont les berceaux de ces nouvelles technologies et elles promettent des changements en profondeur comme le souligne un autre intervenant du WEF ici:

In fintech, much attention has focused on bitcoin digital currency and the development of the underlying blockchain financial transaction technology, although few financial professionals have more than a cursory understanding of both. The mining of bitcoin, bitcoin payments and the blockchain process that underpins bitcoin are gaining currency because of open access and transparency, with bitcoin emerging as a separate asset class, Wood explained. “The liquidity isn’t there, but as we gain liquidity in bitcoin, the costs will drop dramatically and be minimized. As a digital ledger, blockchain is fully transparent. There is an audit trail. We are eliminating a lot of middlemen here. Fintech will be more of an answer to the problem of fraud than a cause of it.”

La révolution est donc en marche, les acteurs historiques des marchés monétaires n’ont maintenant qu’à bien se tenir!
