During the “civil dialogue” in the German-Dutch Army Corps in Munster Scholz said: ” I doubt if they currently have a perspective as a currency model”. He compared cryptocurrencies to tulipomania in the Netherlands in the seventeenth century, saying that “there is a great danger that it will be such a tulip inflation”. Scholz said that the necessary computer processes for the mass implementation of cryptocurrencies are so expensive and energy-intensive that they effectively prevent this process. However, he does not say that the same situation will take place in 20 to 30 years. According to Scholz, cryptocurrencies should be closely monitored by regulators because they can be used to finance terrorism, money laundering or other criminal activities. “We do not believe that they currently have significant economic significance” – he added at the end of his speech.
European legislators have met in the past few weeks to discuss their concerns about cryptocurrencies and potential remedies for problems related to digital assets. On September 4, MEPs met to discuss regulations on initial monetary offers (ICO) that they said were very interesting and promising to raise capital, but they require more regulatory control in the eyes of many European legislators. At the last meeting of the Economic and Financial Affairs Council in Vienna, the Vice-President of the European Commission, Valdis Dombrovskis, stated that cryptography requires further regulation. While he noticed that the crypto “will stay with us permanently,” Dombrovsksis emphasized that the European Union will focus on the development of the classification of cryptographic resources and regulatory mapping.
