Dorsey Says Bitcoin Will Replace The US Dollar

Recommended Posts


Ex Twitter boss says in exchange of tweets that Bitcoin will someday replace the dollar. 


As a reply to the rapper Cardi B, asking if crypto would ever replace the US dollar, Jack Dorsey, who recently left his role as Twitter boss to concentrate on his other company Square, said: “Yes, bitcoin will.”


This is the first time that Dorsey has actually stated his view that Bitcoin will replace the dollar. Up to now he has always stopped short of uttering such a belief.

The exchange of tweets included many replies from both sides of the fence. It is well known that central banks are worried about the growth of cryptocurrencies, and the effect they may have on the stability of the fiat monetary system.

To this effect, one Twitter user replied:


Another user tweeted an opposing view:


A very polarised view over whether Bitcoin will replace the US dollar is certainly out there. However, a lot of analysts, even from the crypto camp, don't believe that replacing the US dollar is the job of Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is generally seen as an alternative to gold, as a safe store of value. The slowness of its blockchain, even with the implementation of the lightning network, would suggest that Bitcoin is nowhere near becoming a usable reserve currency.

Be that as it may, there are developments within the crypto space that could be put forward as future viable mediums of exchange that could replace fiat currencies.

Governments and their central banks are eyeing the crypto space with some trepidation in this respect, and it may well be that regulators are tasked with making sure that private crypto assets do not get in the way of centrally controlled digital assets.

    • Look Ahead to 07/02/23: RBA; GB Retail Sales; BP, BNPP earnings Australia’s central bank is likely to deliver a fourth consecutive quarter-point interest rate hike, after further tightening by the Fed, the ECB and the BoE. Brace for UK retail, earnings from BP (BP) and BNP Paribas (BNPP). Also, look out for US trade balance figures and Halifax house price data ahead of key UK growth data out later in the week.    Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023        
    • Hi, I am practicing certain strategies in demo account. I have created few screeners but when i tried to buy or short sell different stocks shortlisted based on screener conditions, i am getting different kinds of errors. Some stocks you can buy but can't short-sell and so on. I searched in the forums and i understand different restrictions such as market cap should be so and so. Are these rules defined somewhere?  for e.g. one forum reply says market cap should be above 10 billion otherwise you will get second message in below list. However even i try to short sell a stock that has £30 billion market cap, i get the same error.  1. IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close. 2. Market you have requested is not longer available online Any suggestions on the above will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
    • Charting the Markets - February 6, 2023 FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 tiptoe lower following strong US jobs report. EUR/USD and GBP/USD are topping out while EUR/GBP rallies. And gold, Brent crude, and natural gas head lower, as payrolls strengthen the dollar.                         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
