Digital currencies will replace physical money

Deloitte, a multinational provider of audit, tax, consulting, corporate risk and financial advisory services, surveyed more than 1,000 bank executives and executives of financial institutions based in the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Hong Kong, Germany, Brazil, and Japan , Singapore, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates. The goal was to determine whether these top managers saw a future associated with cryptocurrencies.
