BIS says cryptographic weaknesses have been discovered.

The previously identified vulnerabilities in cryptography, according to the global organisation for central banks known as the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), "have nearly heavily materialised." According to BIS General Manager Agustin Carstens, You simply cannot overcome gravity, you eventually have to face the consequences.

The feared risk of decentralised digital currency is becoming real, according to the BIS.

The BIS stated that the crash of the cryptocurrency terra (LUNA) and algorithmic stablecoin terrausd (UST) are signs of a fundamental issue in the cryptocurrency industry in its Annual Economic Report, which was released on Tuesday.

The cryptosphere lacks a reliable nominal anchor and is fragmented due to structural faults that prevent it from serving as the foundation for a monetary system. Cryptocurrency usually employs unregulated intermediaries that pose financial concerns.

Carstens stated in an interview that without a government-backed authority that can employ reserves paid for by taxes, every form of money eventually loses legitimacy.

The BIS executive then discussed digital currencies issued by central banks (CBDCs). The BIS stated in a report released in May that nine out of ten central banks globally are looking into developing their own digital currency.

The BIS Innovation Hub revealed this week that its projects for the Eurosystem Center will look into the cryptocurrency markets. The collapse of numerous stablecoins and decentralised finance (defi) lending systems, according to the statement, "has emphasised the difficulty in appraising their risks and economic potential." The creation of an open-source market intelligence platform to shine light on market capitalizations, economic activity, and dangers to financial stability is the project's main objective.
