Cryptocurrencies and digital currencies: States regain control

Published on :

Cryptocurrencies, bitcoin in the lead, fascinate investors, but also worry, so much so that States are launching their own digital currencies. India is following in the footsteps of China and Nigeria with its rupee. Other major powers, such as the United States, the United Kingdom or the euro zone, are thinking about it via their central banks. This is a resumption of control on the part of States and major financial institutions who do not want to miss the train of a technological evolution that is now inevitable. And who also want to limit certain abuses related to cryptocurrencies. Their extreme volatility is fueled by the power of certain influencers who are very popular among (often young) social media consumers.

Our guests :

Jamal Bouoiyour, economist and lecturer at the University of Pau

Faustine Fleuret, President and CEO of ADAN (Association for the Development of Digital Assets).

In the second part of the show, we talk about the emergence of a new means of exchanging value: NFTs, virtual and certified digital objects. They arouse a strong enthusiasm in the field of art and in that of sport, football in particular. Kylian Mbappé, Karim Benzema, Mohamed Salah, Lionel Messi, Serena Williams, Lebron James and many others are entering this billion dollar market.

Are traditional currencies such as the euro, dollar, yen or CFA franc threatened with competition? In these times of generalized inflation, what if we rehabilitated local currencies?

Our guests :

Magali Tezenas from Montcel, general delegate of Sporsoraan organization that brings together the major players in the sports economy in France.

Ariane Tichit, economist, lecturer at Clermont Auvergne University, author of Alternative currencies. From monetary diversity to economic diversity (published by Blaise Pascal University Press), co-author of NFTs in 40 questions (Dunod editions).
