Cryptocurrencies from an Austrian perspective

Professor Alistair Milne, Loughborough University, UK

11am–12.30pm

This presentation outlines the technology of cryptocurrencies, avoiding misleading analogy with notes and coin. It then proposes using this technology to move both bank money and money-financed bank loans off balance sheet onto a single shared cryptocurrency ledger, together with government issued fiat money. This stops bank failures disrupting money and payments and hence helps achieve monetary outcomes desired by the Austrian school of economics: reducing excessive state interference in the market for credit (through bank regulation, lender of last resort and bail-out) and discouraging unsustainable money and credit expansions (leading to financial crisis and depression).
