For Bitcoin Lessons In The History Of Failed Currencies
If someone were to perfect a flying car, governments around the world
would be faced with a conundrum. Over the centuries humans have
developed a transport system complete with quaint country streets,
bustling six-lane highways, electronic toll booths and police officers
to monitor it all. So should the powers that be try to fit the flying
car into the current model or create a whole new scheme that allows the
new technology to flourish?
A comparable question of positioning is the biggest challenge facing Bitcoin
and other digital currencies, says Ed Moy former director of the United
States Mint. In an interview earlier this year Moy said, “Government
moves very slow and cautiously. Digital technology moves very quickly,
so eventually the conflict is going to be crypto-currencies moving
faster than what governments are comfortable with.”
On Tuesday the U.S. government took a step toward fitting Bitcoin into
the existing monetary framework when the Internal Revenue Service issued
a notice declaring that virtual currencies will be taxed as property.
The IRS pointed out that while Bitcoin may operate like “real” money “it
does not have legal tender status in any jurisdiction.” So if you
exchange Bitcoin for a good and that good is worth more than what you
paid for the Bitcoin you need to pay tax on the difference.
While payment systems tend to evolve, specific currencies have come
and gone over the centuries. Take for example the Continental Dollar of
early America. Writing by email from Mongolia Jack Weatherford, author
of “The History of Money,”
explained that Brits immigrating to the American colonies were not
allowed to import British money. After failed attempts to use the
Mexican silver dollar — there simply weren’t enough to finance a
revolution — they started issuing paper dollars known as Continental
“Like the Bitcoin, it was a revolutionary idea that got out of hand
and the value of the dollars dropped drastically,” writes Weatherford.
“After the revolution, the US abandoned paper money and returned to the
use of coins. It took another century before the US government was able
to create an effective paper money system.”
According to Benjamin Alsop, curator of the Citi Money Gallery at The
British Museum, coins were first created about 2,200 years ago in
modern Turkey, when people had already been tracking financial
transactions in some way for about 2,000 years. These coins were created
by some central authority as a way to standardize, but also brought
control to the central authority. “I supposed that is one thing Bitcoin
doesn’t do,” says Alsop.
