No :-

  • If value of standard currency falls, we can still afford to live in our country, because the fall of currency value impacts all fields. For example, if the prices of groceries rise, so does our salaries. But if the value of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin falls, we will loose our hard earned money.
  • Bitcoin, the earliest cryptocurrency will generates only 21 million coins. That means when the demand for the bitcoin is more, the value of the bitcoin will increases. There is a downside to this, the value of the currency completely depends on the demand it has, that means if the major investors withdrew their money, the value of this currency will crash.
  • There is no governing body. If the cryptocurrency is hacked, no one will take the responsibility to repay our money.
  • Many cryptocurrencies came to the market after the invention of bitcoins. New cryptocurrency may decrease the demand for earlier cryptocurrencies. Investing in these kind of currencies will be risky.
  • Cashless economy made financial transactions much easier. Hence, there is no need of cryptocurrencies.
