Bitcoin can stabilise volatile market in India

(TimesOfIndia) At a time when the country has suffered devaluation of rupee against
dollar, inflation and fuel price volatility in exchange market, two
students of Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) at Indian Institute of
Management, Indore (IIM-I) have rekindled hopes to address the problems
through introduction of ‘Bit Coin’ currency system.

Bitcoin is
a crypto currency which currently has market capitalisation of $8.1
billion. The recognition is mainly because of its introduction during
financial crisis, when trust on government and policy makers was low. It
is an alternative to card networks and money transfer system.

Khadija Vakeel and Nitya Saxena of IIM-I in their study found out that
at a time, when the country is struggling to achieve a respectable
position on matters of financial inclusion, Bit Coin can be a game

Bitcoin can also lead to a new industry and challenge
for IT youths and can address the problem of brain drain. While
Singapore is pro bit coin, China stands against it. India is yet to take
a side. Users having Bit Coin can enter into virtual goods and services
exchange. The study states that inflation is simply a rise in prices
over a period of time, which is generally the result of the devaluation
of currency.

This is a function of supply and demand. Given the
fact that the supply of bit coins is fixed at a certain amount, unlike
fiat money, the only way for inflation to get out of control is for
demand to disappear.
