在6月26日发布的最新货币对话报告中，欧洲议会经济和货币事务委员会(Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs)表示，尽管加密货币使金融交易“相对安全、透明和快速”，但它们对全球主权货币不会构成威胁。
该分析是由位于华沙的一家非盈利研究机构——社会经济研究中心(Center for Social and Economic Research)进行的。该研究首先确认了加密货币给金融交易带来的积极变化，并指出它们现在“在全球范围内使用，不涉及国家边界”。
In the latest Monetary Dialogue report issued on June 26, the European Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs said that while cryptocurrencies have made financial transactions "relatively safe, transparent, and fast," they pose no threat to sovereign currencies around the world.
The analysis, which was conducted by the Center for Social and Economic Research, a non-profit research institute based in Warsaw, first recognized the positive changes cryptocurrencies have brought to financial transactions, noting that they now "are used globally, disregarding national borders."
Cryptocurrencies "respond to real market demand," the analysis claimed, and they will have the potential to become a "full-fledged private money" or even a permanent element to the global economy.
However, the researchers said it is "unlikely" cryptocurrencies will threaten central banks and sovereign currencies and dismantle the existing monetary structures, especially in countries where their sovereign currencies are widely circulated.
At present, according to the analysis, the total value of all cryptocurrencies circulating in the market heavily underweigh the value of major sovereign currencies in circulation.
But a few exceptions exist. The report cited runaway inflation in Venezuela and noted that in much smaller monetary jurisdictions, cryptocurrencies "may" offer alternative to unstable currency.
In addition, the analysis suggested that financial regulators should treat cryptocurrencies as "any other financial transactions or instruments," given the potential risks associated with transactions using cryptocurrencies, including money laundering, tax evasion, and financing illicit activities.
