The original purpose of crypto when Bitcoin was
invented was to allow people to make financial
transactions via the internet. Included in the
original thinking for crypto was that transactions
would not require middlemen. Then Bitcoin,
followed by other tokens, started to multiply in
value. The original crypto token which had been
worth a fraction of a cent became worth a dollar,
ten dollars, a hundred dollars, and thousands of
dollars.
Bitcoin became a way to get rich quick. This was
great for folks who made money and not so great
for those who speculated and lost. Crypto, however,
had strayed from its original purpose. Now
countries like Singapore are going to be treating
differently purpose-bound versus speculative digital
money.
Sorting Out of Cryptocurrencies
For several years crypto was exciting and full of
profits. A mantra developed that Bitcoin and the
rest would go up in value forever. Regulation was
not necessary because crypto was decentralized
and better off without government interference.
When crypto winter hit and turned into more of a
crypto ice age it had a sobering effect on many in
the crypto world.
When DeFi businesses and crypto exchanges collapsed
more folks became concerned. Then it became
clear how badly some crypto businesses had been
managed and there were fraudulent dealings within
top crypto companies. The regulatory floodgates
opened and most folks in the crypto world
welcomed government oversight comparable to that
which is exercised over banks, stock markets, or
insurance companies.
Despite all of its troubles, crypto is not going away.
What is happening is that regulators are sorting out
crypto. The result is that crypto trading will be
safer as will DeFi and crypto exchange business
operations. In this regard, we are looking at
Singapore’s protocols for purpose-bound as opposed
to speculative digital money.
What Is Purpose-bound Digital Money?
Singapore’s central bank is proposing standards for
purpose-bound digital money. By digital money
the Singapore Monetary Authority means tokenized
bank deposits, central bank digital currencies, and
stablecoins on a distributed ledger. The point is to
integrate crypto and, specifically, decentralized
finance into the traditional financial network. This
is consistent with the original intent for Bitcoin to
make it a way to carry out person to person
financial transactions using the internet.
Because of how cryptocurrencies work using
blockchain technology including authentications,
there needs to be an agreed upon way to move
assets in and out of crypto to be able to take
advantage of banking systems and other aspects of
the TradFi network. This effort is similar to how
Congress is looking at payment stablecoin
regulations via states. The point is to take a
better-regulated world of crypto and let it take
advantage of opportunities in the world of
traditional finance.
Development of a Common Protocol for Purpose-
bound Digital Money
As with virtually all developing technologies, there is
typically one agreed upon way of doing things that
eventually evolves. To the extent that someone like
Singapore’s central bank can sort this out in
advance, it will remove the confusion of there
being several proprietary systems dealing with
points of contact between DeFi and TradFi.
As always, the devil is in the details and Singapore’s
white paper on the subject covers the technical
specifications they believe are necessary to make
this work. On a practical level this type of system
needs to work for people whose assets are in crypto
but want to do something as simple as buy a
product online and not OK payment until the item
has been shipped and received.
Singapore’s central bank has borrowed ideas from
their Project Orchid which has been working to
develop the necessary technical competence and
infrastructure since 2021.
