Bitcoin has made headlines in the past week as the value skyrockets. How are world leaders responding to the cryptocurrency?

In an article from Business Insider, author James Stafford writes, “Cryptocurrency may be one of the biggest threats to governments, security and the entire financial system that we’ve ever seen. It can help fund terrorism and its anonymity makes it almost impossible to track. Most importantly, it is poised to revolutionize global finance and banking”.

In the article, Stafford discusses:

  • The period of uncertainty is over
  • Threats and opportunities
  • The crypto ‘embrace’ is all about control
  • Investors flock to the future

Stafford continues, “From China and Russia to North America, virtual is the reality. It’s no longer a question of whether cryptocurrency will survive. It’s a question of what it will disrupt on its way to the top of the global finance chain”. The rise of bitcoin has government’s attention and they will act. How will this impact your business and businesses throughout the world?
