The Swiss National Bank Forecasts the Future of Bitcoin

The chairman of the Swiss National Bank, Thomas Jordan, has shared his novel view on Bitcoin. While speaking at the central bank’s annual general meeting, Jordan shared his qualms about adding Bitcoin as a reserve currency, outlining the flaws that BTC possesses.

The SNB chief stressed Bitcoin’s inability to be liquid, adding that currency reserves are supposed to be liquid and movable. Apart from mobility issues, Jordan pressed on the asset’s sustainability clause, pinpointing the token’s inability to act as a robust mode of payment.

“We have not yet decided that we want to invest in Bitcoin. Actually, for good reasons. Currency reserves are international payments. They have to be liquid. They have to be sustainable. And we have to be able to sell and buy them.” Jordan shared.

Swiss Campaigners Rally for Bitcoin Support

Several Swiss campaigners are echoing the pro-Bitcoin stance, pushing SNB to hold a part of its currency reserves in Bitcoin. Luiz Meisser, a staunch supporter and chairman of Bitcoin Suisse, shared how SNB has been juggling losses by investing money in dipping international bonds when it should have invested its share in the asset.
