万事达卡CEO:非政府发行的数字货币都是垃圾

万事达卡公司首任印度籍总裁兼首席执行官Ajay Banga最近分享了他对数字货币的看法,他表示没有政府支持的数字货币均是“垃圾”。

Ajay Bang还批评了比特币的波动性,因为这种数字货币经常被勒索攻击等非法活动所利用。对于中国政府打击比特币交易,彭安杰还表示了支持:

他指出:

“如果我用比特币支付一瓶水,某一天一个比特币能买到2瓶水,而到了另一天,一个比特币能换到9000瓶水。这就会带来麻烦,任何货币都需要稳定性及透明性,否者你就有可能面临各种各样的非法活动。”

很显然,大多数的金融大佬们并不看好比特币和加密货币。

最近,德意志银行前主席、现瑞银主席Axel Weber也曾发表评论指出:

“货币的主要功能包括,它是一种支付手段,它必须被普遍接受,它必须是价值的储备媒介,它是一种交易媒介。而比特币,仅仅满足交易媒介这项。”

而在刚刚过去的9月,摩根大通首席执行官也对比特币发表了评论,他称比特币没有任何价值背书,在本质上它是一种骗局。而他的评论,可能不完全是真实的,但其最终造成了比特币价格短期下跌,并收到了来自业界的回应。

世界最大对冲基金之一布里奇沃特投资公司创始人Ray Dalio最近也批评了比特币的波动性。

他说:

“它并非是一种有效的财富存储媒介,因为它具有很大的波动性,这不同于黄金。比特币是一个高度投机的市场,它是一个泡沫。”

而在比特币基金会主席Brock Pierce看来,上述的这些评论,恰恰标记着加密货币市场正朝着正确的方向前进。

 Brock在接受采访时表示:

“如果传统行业管理者发出这样的声明,那可能恰好证明我们所做的工作已经开始产生效果。”

Ajay Banga, the first Indian President and CEO of Mastercard, a global payment technology company, recently shared his views on the prevailing digital currencies, calling them “junk”.

In an interview with Economic Times, the CEO was asked about the move towards digital currency, something that presents a big challenge for a company that provides payment solutions around the world – an industry that can be disrupted by cryptocurrencies and blockchain-powered financial solutions.

His response should come as no surprise:

“If the government creates digital currency, we will find a way to be in the game. We will provide rails for moving currency from customer to merchant. The government mandated digital currencies are interesting. Non-government mandated currency is junk.”

Ajay Banga went on to criticize Bitcoin for its volatility and use-cases for illegal activities such as ransomware attacks. He also supported China’s crackdown on Bitcoin.

“If I pay for a bottle of water in Bitcoin, one day it is two bottles for a Bitcoin the other day it is 9,000 bottles. This does not work. Any currency needs stability and transparency, otherwise you will get all the illegal activities in the world. Why was the ransom for the virus (wannacry ransomware) collected in bitcoin? Why has China cracked down on bitcoin?”

It is clear that most financial bigwigs have not taken very nicely to Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. We recently reported comments by Axel Weber, the former President of Bundesbank and Chairman UBS, who said:

“The important function of a currency is, it’s a means of payment, it has to be generally accepted, it has to be a store of value and it’s a transaction currency. Bitcoin is only a transaction currency.”

He went on to add:

“I get often asked why I‘m so skeptical about bitcoin, it probably comes from my background as a central banker.”

In September we saw JPMorgan CEO making quite the news with his comments on Bitcoin, calling it a “fraud” and a currency that is based on nothing.

His comments, which may not have been entirely truthful, ended up hurting Bitcoin’s price and received mixed responses from the industry.

Ray Dalio, the founder of Bridgewater Associates, which is one of the largest hedge funds in the world, was also among the detractors, pointing towards Bitcoin’s volatility:

"It's not an effective storehold of wealth because it has volatility to it, unlike gold. Bitcoin is a highly speculative market. Bitcoin is a bubble."

It appears that Brock Pierce, Chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation, believes that comments like these reinforce the fact that cryptocurrencies are moving in the right direction.

“When the incumbent industry is making statements like this and acknowledging you...it’s a sign that what we’re doing is working...it’s a huge validation,” said Brock in an exclusive interview with Cryptovest.
