- USA/USD is present reserve forex however no reserve forex lasts ceaselessly.
- Europe/EU is a bizarre mixture of impartial international locations and a single forex.
- China/CNY is the rising financial energy however their forex is just not totally convertible but and never trusted in lots of components of the world. This isn’t just like the UK handing management to USA with a lot shared beliefs and tradition.
- Gold. This has the non-inflationary credentials and 1000’s of years of historical past, however as a bodily commodity it isn’t Web-friendly.
- BTC. This e-gold forex is Web-friendly, making world transfers straightforward, however it isn’t mainstream-accepted.

Inside the Chinese language sphere (eg international locations on the New Silk Highway), the CNY possibly the accepted forex whereas it isn’t used within the Western sphere (eg Europe, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Australia).
Or we may even see hybrids emerge, comparable to a CBDC backed by Gold.
