During a presentation on digital currencies entitled “Old Money, New Money,” Andy Haldane, Chief Economist & the Executive Director of Monetary Analysis and Statistics of the Bank of England and his team stated that “Digital currencies are ‘harder money’ than a gold standard” because “sustained adoption [of bitcoin] would see ongoing deflation.” [...] 2 million UK adults do not have bank accounts and 2.5 billion people in the world have no access to financial services, said Haldane.
