Bank of England

The Bank of England would establish a direct digital equivalent to physical money and take control of it in the same way as sterling

Cash in people's pockets would be superseded by a new 'Britcoin' digital currency in a plan being pushed by Chancellor Rishi Sunak.

In what Treasury insiders say would be the biggest upheaval in the monetary system for centuries, the Bank of England would establish a direct digital equivalent to physical money and take control of it in the same way as sterling.

Its supporters in the Treasury say that it would allow the Bank to give the economy a boost in times of financial crisis by paying the 'Britcoins' directly into people's bank accounts.


Comment: One of the benefits to the establishment is that they will be better able to 'manage' financial crises, as well as to more easily coerce the population through direct control of people's wealth. And, as the banking crash of 2008, the subsequent bailouts by governments using taxpayers money, and the resulting decade of brutal austerity measures have shown, the establishment do not have the best interests of the average person in mind.


It could also slash the cost and time it takes to make payments online and transfer money around the banking system.

Britcoin could also cut banking costs dramatically for small firms. However, critics warn that a digital version of the pound could lead to greater financial instability - making it harder for the Bank to regulate the economy with monetary policies such as setting interest rates.

There are also fears the introduction of Britcoin would lead to higher loan and mortgage rates as millions of people switched cash to central bank digital currency, eating into the amount of money high street banks have on deposit to lend to borrowers.

A taskforce of Treasury and Bank officials set up to examine the merits of Britcoin - known as the Central Bank Digital Currency - is expected to report to Mr Sunak by the end of the year.

The Treasury is understood to be more keen than the Bank of England on the idea of creating an official British digital currency to compete with the rise of Bitcoin because they are wary of the huge numbers of people piling into cryptocurrencies. Some investors have lost vast sums as the price of Bitcoin has gyrated wildly.

Meanwhile, other countries are racing to develop their own digital currencies. China has been testing a digital yuan; US Treasury secretary Janet Yellen has hinted that a digital dollar could be created; and the European Central Bank is investigating plans for a digital euro. Unlike Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, Britcoin would be linked to the value of the pound and backed by the central bank. That, in theory, should stop it from swinging massively in value.


Comment: 'In theory', but what's to stop them decoupling the digital currency from the pound? All they would need to do is declare a 'national crisis' and ram through emergency legislation, as they did with lockdowns and mandatory vaccination.


Under plans being considered by officials, consumers might be able to hold the currency in accounts directly linked to the Bank of England. Officials are undecided on whether to attach interest rates to Britcoin, which might make it attractive to savers as an alternative to cash.

Retailers and other companies could accept the digital currency for ordinary payments that customers would otherwise have made with a debit or credit card.

But the amount of money each individual could hold in Britcoin is likely to be limited initially. Crucially, consumers would be able to change pound Sterling into Britcoin with ease. It would also be made very simple - and very fast - to transfer Britcoin back into ordinary cash that could be taken out of an ATM. That might help avoid the type of long queues that occurred when thousands tried to get their money out of Northern Rock in 2007.


Comment: They will make switching fast and easy, initially, but there's nothing stopping them changing their minds, and this new currency does not guarantee the value of people's money nor its accessibility; at least with cash there is always the prospect of holding on to it physically.


A digital currency where customers have accounts directly linked to the Bank of England would also make it far easier to issue so-called 'helicopter' money, where funds are injected into people's pockets by the Government.


Comment: Governments are rarely eager to 'inject money into people's pockets' without there being some significant, and often detrimental, trade off.


This could prove a more effective way of stimulating the economy in times of crisis than quantitative easing (QE).


Comment: QE didn't stimulate the economy, it bailed out private banks and made the rich, even richer; there is nothing in digital currencies that prevent this scenario from being repeated, in fact, it will make confiscating wealth even easier to do, and those that protest can simply be locked out of their account.


QE has been used since the 2009 financial crisis to flood the banking system with new money, but the scheme has been criticised for storing up potential inflation while failing to get the cash to trickle down to households and businesses in the rest of the economy.

Comment: As with most technologies, digital and crypto currencies can be used for good or ill, and the outcome tends to depend on the operator. However, there are a number of pitfalls involved in digital and cryptocurrencies, particularly for the general public, and more so if physical cash was to be removed from circulation altogether, and yet, despite this, much of the planet is rather hurriedly making moves towards introducing them:
