Welsh Government Fund Backs Pilot Program To Launch A Cryptocurrency For SME’s
Wales will be funding the development of it's cryptocurrency. The aim is to boost it's local economy, particularly the small and medium business enterprises.
The government has financed the process. The digital currency is estimated to boost the economy to a tune of £250m over the next decade.
Wales is creating a complimentary digital currency on the mutual credit system in Sardina, Italy. The project is based on the previous economic benefit of small and medium businesses of 50 million EUR last year. The development of the new currency is supported owing to the earlier success of the economic boost for a particular single year.
The digital currency network will help businesses transact without using other states' currencies. Researchers from the London School of Economics are also in support of the project, as it is equally beneficial to both regions.
The Welsh government is highly involved in the project, and it gave $100,000. The government's contribution will allow for consultation and piloting expected to take place in North wales. Dr. Paolo Dini, a researcher and founder of Sardex, will support the pilot. He said that
“it's so exciting to pilot this in wales.”
It is the first replication of Sardex outside Italy. The economic factors are expected to bode well, and the only challenge is ensuring that the businesses understand the benefits.
Expected Impacts of the Currency to the Local Economy
Introducing a broader and more manageable financial approach to economic development is associated with a strong and more stable economy. It is, according to Wales's deputy minister for economy and transport lee water.
Boosting the small businesses will improve the entire economy as the small enterprises bloom, and the economy stabilizes. Seoul, a neighboring town in South Korea, reported in July of its willingness to support the Wales new currency.
