What Is Cryptocurrency?
Barriers to Institutional Adoption
Apart from the obvious questions about the stability and the lack of regulation present in the cryptocurrency marketplace, other barriers have prevented widespread adoption of these cryptocurrencies by financial institutions. Some of the most common issues with using cryptocurrency in the commercial funding marketplace include the lack of advanced application programming interfaces in the exchange marketplace and the fact that cryptocurrencies have not yet established a centralized trading system for all transactions. This forces commercial funding companies and other financial institutions to work with a wide range of different systems and trading exchanges.
Why Cryptocurrency Matters to Your Business
Cryptocurrency offers a number of important advantages in the commercial financial marketplace:
- Because cryptocurrency transactions are typically performed on a peer-to-peer network, they eliminate most of the uncertainty and added expenses involved in the financial process.
- Cryptocurrency transactions are designed to provide optimal privacy for all parties. This is especially important in funding arrangements designed to finance cannabis-related business activities in the states that have legalized these businesses.
- Because cryptocurrency is available to all investors regardless of their geographical location or their ability to access traditional forms of credit, these digital currencies can allow for truly international funding for many commercial enterprises.
