7位CEO谈比特币的未来

在《财富》金融头脑风暴会议上,我们向七位首席执行官和一位首席运营官提出问题:“比特币的未来会怎样?”

许多人对数字货币比特币态度鲜明,但真有人深入了解比特币的发展方向吗?在近日召开的《财富》金融头脑风暴会议上,我们向七位首席执行官和一位首席运营官提出问题:“比特币的未来会怎样?”

高管们领导下的公司有些属于加密货币领域,也有些并不相关,他们简明扼要地回答了问题。我们整理了部分回复:

西联汇款的首席执行官贺博睿正直面一些区块链公司的挑战,不少公司声称将抢占西联汇款的转账业务:“区块链当然是一种很有趣的处理模式。但我深信,货币必须由央行发行,必须由政府控制。我认为比特币无法保持长期发展。”

数字化投资顾问公司Ellevest的首席执行官,也是美国银行的前高管萨莉·克劳切克提出了令人耳目一新而又很直接的看法:“我不知道。谁觉得自己知道?”

摩根大通的前区块链高管,目前经营区块链初创企业Clovyr的艾博·巴尔代特表示:“(比特币)技术是完全公开的,不断有人学习和修改,但比特币想解决的问题和人们想从中获得的东西将一直存在下去。”

成立有段时间的加密货币支付服务公司Circle的首席执行官杰里米·阿莱尔表示:“作为一种私密且不受审查的非主权数字化价值储存手段,比特币的作用正在逐步提升。”

区块链创意管理服务公司Civic的首席执行官维尼·林汉姆表示:“有些人认为比特币是一种价值储存手段,所有人都应该购买并持有,对冲全球政府崩溃的风险。其他人则认为,比特币应该是用于点对点支付的加密货币。”

信用卡初创企业Brex的首席执行官亨里克·杜布格拉斯表示:“我认为,在货币汇率急剧波动的国家中,比特币将是更好的价值储存方式。”

专注加密货币领域的风险投资公司Digital Currency Group的首席执行官,已经投资数十家加密货币初创企业的巴里·西尔伯特表示:“比特币与黄金有着完全相同的属性……比特币缺乏的是历史,可能还有文化意义,但从可获得性和实用性方面来说完全可以弥补缺陷。”

纽约证券交易所旗下的加密货币交易所Bakkt的首席运营官亚当·怀特说道:“以前有些事情只能在主权国家中可以看到,比如说货币,现在通过技术和软件就能产生新货币,能以去中心化的方式实现。”(财富中文网)

Many people have strong opinions on Bitcoin, but does anyone really know where the digital currency is going? At Fortune’s recent Brainstorm Finance conference, we put the question “What’s the future of Bitcoin?” to seven CEOs—and one COO.

The executives, who lead companies both inside and outside the cryptocurrency space, offered up a series of snappy answers. We’ve compiled portions of their responses:

Hikmet Ersek, CEO of Western Union, who is confronting blockchain companies that claim to challenge his company’s money transfer business: “Blockchain is definitely an interesting processing model. Coins and currencies have to be shipped by central banks—that’s what I believe. It has to be controlled by governments. ... Bitcoin I don’t think has a long run.”

Sallie Krawcheck, CEO of Ellevest and a former top executive at Bank of America, had a refreshingly direct take: “I have no idea. Anyone else think they know?”

Amber Baldet, former blockchain executive at JP Morgan who now runs the blockchain start-up Clovyr: “[Bitcoin] technology is out in the wild and is being learned from and modified and, in some incarnation, the problems that it solves and the things people need from it will stick around.”

Jeremy Allaire, CEO of long-established cryptocurrency payment service Circle, said: “The role of Bitcoin is growing as a non-sovereign digital store of value that is private and un-censorable.”

Vinny Lingham, CEO of blockchain idea management service Civic: “Some people see Bitcoin as a store of value—everyone should be buying it to hold it and prevent against a global meltdown of governments. Others people believe Bitcoin is meant to be a cryptocurrency for peer-to-peer payments.”

The CEO of buzzy credit card start Brex, Henrique Dubugras, said: “I believe it will be a better way to store value in countries where the currency is pretty volatile.”

Barry Silbert, the CEO of Digital Currency Group and investor in dozens of crypto startups: “Bitcoin has all the same attributes as gold ... What Bitcoin lacks in history and, arguably, cultural significance, it more than makes up in accessibility and utility.”

Adam White, COO of the New York Stock Exchange’s crypto venture, Bakkt, had this to say: “What we previously saw only in the domains of sovereign nation states—like money—now via technology and software, we can now do and accomplish in a decentralized way.”
