As professor by special appointment, Boonstra does a lot of research into economic and monetary matters. Likewise for cryptos. He recently published an article about cryptocurrencies, in which he answers questions in understandable language about digital currencies.
How does he view (the future of) digital currencies from his background and expertise? During the interview, de Jong touches on a number of assumptions from Boonstra’s publication. “You could think of Bitcoin as a foreign currency, but without an underlying economy.” “There can be no inflation in Bitcoin because it is capped at 21 million.” And: “Will everyone pay with Bitcoin in 10 years?”
