Marshall Islands to go ahead with world’s first decentralised national currency

Marshall Islands to go ahead with world’s first decentralised national currency
Here’s a blockchain story on a different tack; the Marshall
Islands is set to launch the world’s first decentralised national currency in
association with smart card wallets producer Tangem.



Tangem has announced it will be issuing the physical
banknotes of the sovereign (SOV) – and once it has been issued, will be a part
of the official legal tender of the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI),
along with the US dollar.



SOV is based on blockchain technology and allows fast,
cheap, and global transactions while resisting the abuse by bad actors. The
Tangem / SOV partnership will guarantee all citizens of the Marshall Islands
have fair and equal access to their digital currency, irrespective of the fact
that they have an internet connection or not.



Immediate transaction validation, zero fees and no
Internet connection requirements for the end users will help Tangem banknotes
to enable off-chain physical circulation of the SOV among all SOV holders and
will not impose technical infrastructure burden on the Marshall Islands,
stakeholders hope.



Every single Tangem card will form a unique physical
banknote, equipped with a secure blockchain-enabled microprocessor and combine
the familiar advantages of paper banknotes with the security of blockchain
technology. These protected notes will be fully transparent, 100% secure,
decentralised, and represent a controllable mechanism of currency issuance and
circulation for the state, the company notes.



Earlier this month Tangem raised $15 million from Tokyo-based digital asset venture investment firm SBI Crypto Investment. In order to quickly deploy its technology in industries where secure storage and circulation of blockchain assets has the highest potential, the company has started attracting additional investment.
