Elsewhere, leading investment bank Goldman Sachs sounded a positive note on digital currencies and digital assets, predicting that the entire financial system could exist on chain over the next decade.
Head of digital assets at Goldman, Mathew McDermott, said everything that can be done today physically will soon be possible on blockchain, echoing the optimism that has long since existed in the sector.
“In the next five to 10 years, you could see a financial system where all assets and liabilities are native to a blockchain, with all transactions natively happening on chain.”
“So what you’re doing today in the physical world, you just do digitally, creating huge efficiencies. And that can be debt issuances, securitization, loan origination; essentially you’ll have a digital financial markets ecosystem, the options are pretty vast.”
