Are cryptocurrencies the future of payments

Are cryptocurrencies a financial instrument of the future?

Everyone is talking about crypto currencies and in recent years they have established themselves as a serious means of payment, which could still revolutionize money in the future. In addition to the digital euro, which, according to experts, could not be long in coming, cryptocurrency also supplements cash, credit cards and the like and gives consumers a wide range of different payment options. But how could the different currencies revolutionize the financial market? The professionals behind the crypto currency Caizcoin, based on the first liberal Islamic blockchain, know this.

What actually characterizes cryptocurrencies?
Digital currencies are of course in tune with the times, and digitization makes such developments possible in the investment sector as well. Cryptocurrencies are based on blockchain technology, which ultimately enables a very high level of security and protection against any manipulation by third parties, but also excludes the involvement of banks or other institutions. Consumers thus receive a financial product that can be used anonymously and in a self-determined manner, while being safe, fast and inexpensive at the same time.

Who can access cryptocurrencies?
Digital currencies enable decentralization and thus make them accessible to everyone. This is also a great advantage, because significantly more people have access to the financial system than they already have to the banking system. For example, members of Islam did not have access to digital currencies such as Bitcoin until recently, as the price can ultimately be determined through speculation and used for illegal activities. In their religion, this is not considered to be Islamic.

"With Caizchain we have developed a blockchain that complies with Islamic values ​​and at the same time takes into account the requirements of the modern world and thus also gives Muslims access to Islamic finance," says the Caizchain developers. The Caizcoin is kept in its own wallet, i.e. a digital purse. Customers can dispose of the assets at any time, send them or simply store them in them.

After all, what does this mean for customers?
The advantage is that third parties such as banks or state institutions have no access to the data and cannot manipulate the prices or simply have new money printed. Personal data is encrypted using blockchain technology and cannot be viewed by unauthorized persons. Above all, thanks to these long chains, every transaction can be traced and not manipulated, which enables a high level of security within payment transactions.

Can digital currencies be used to pay in the future?
Developments in this regard are still in their infancy, and many companies and industries do not dare to introduce cryptocurrency and thus blockchain technology, as the know-how or rather the necessary education about the topic has so far been missing.

In addition, the prices on the stock exchange fluctuate very strongly and no fixed exchange rates have yet been set. Nevertheless, there are already individual online shops that offer payment with digital currencies, but these are rather rare. Nevertheless, the outlook looks very positive and promising, because in the digital age, of course, cryptocurrencies are the only logical extension of money.

Smart applications in the household could be played with digital currencies, for example, so that the refrigerator can be charged with coins and independently order new groceries on the network should the supplies run out. Cryptocurrencies are particularly interesting for the e-commerce sector and could give consumers easier access to the global market. Of course, companies that can open up completely new sales markets also benefit from this.
