REGULATING DIGITAL CURRENCIES: BRINGING BITCOIN WITHIN THE REACH OF THE IMF (pdf)

REGULATING-DIGITAL-CURRENCIES-BRINGING-BITCOIN-WITHIN-THE-REACH-OF-THE-IMF

This Comment examines the potentially destabilizing effects of emerging digital currencies on the international foreign currency exchange. Specifically, it examines “Bitcoin,” a decentralized, partially anonymous, and largely unregulated digital currency that has become particularly popular in the last few years. The paper argues that International Monetary Fund, the institution responsible for coordinating the stability of foreign exchange rates, is ill-equipped to handle the widespread use of Bitcoins into the foreign exchange market. It highlights the inability of the Fund to intervene in the event of a speculative attack on a currency by Bitcoin users. The paper concludes by suggesting an interpretation of the Fund’s incorporating document, the Articles of Agreement, which would allow it to intervene in the event of such an attack.
