Abstract

Can digital money replace existing currencies?? A detailed examination of the Bitcoin protocol shows that this conceptual and technical achievement is still far from becoming a full-fledged currency, but the innovations in financial technology that it spurred could have important consequences for payment systems. Classification JEL: E42, G20, L86, O33.
