The well-known economist and critic of bitcoin Nouriel Roubini stated that bitcoin cannot become a real currency, and predicted a massive transition of states to settlements in CBDC… This was reported by Kommersant.
“Bitcoin today is not a currency, and I do not consider it a reliable store of savings, like all other similar cryptocurrencies, which have not become a real currency and are unlikely to become it,” he said.
At the same time, Roubini is convinced that over time, global central banks will introduce their own digital currency.
“We will give up cash more and more and will eventually move to our digital money. This is already happening in Sweden, in China, where you can pay for everything using a QR code, ”added the economist.
In February, Nouriel Roubini admitted that bitcoin could be “partially” perceived as a store of value due to its tightly limited emission.
