Yes, surely cryptocurrency can become the dominant means of payment in the future. Big names like Microsoft, Starbucks, PayPal, and Twitch are already accepting payment in cryptocurrency. One of the most influential figures, Elon Musk, have been a vocal supporter of it for a long time and his firm, Tesla accepts dogecoin as payment method. The main advantage of cryptocurrency is their decentralized, so no government or banks control, giving people more freedom. Also it has the potential to replace USD as form of international transaction currency, providing a neutral ground. As countries like Russia and China decline the authority of USD, it seems a good alternative. Also, adopting crypto for transactions could offer benefits such as reduced fees and faster settlement times.
However, cryptocurrencies also come with their own set of disadvantages. One major concern is their volatility, which can lead to significant fluctuations in value over short periods. This volatility makes cryptocurrencies less stable compared to traditional currencies, which could deter widespread adoption for everyday transactions. Furthermore, the regulatory landscape surrounding cryptocurrencies is still evolving, leading to uncertainty and potential regulatory challenges in the future. Government regulations could impact the use and acceptance of cryptocurrencies, potentially hindering their widespread adoption as a dominant means of payment.

I believe that one way to overcome these obstacles may be to further improve the technology and infrastructure around cryptocurrencies. It is also important that states and international organisations work to create a transparent and stable legal framework for the cryptocurrency market
But I also think that states are against cryptocurrency because all the people are withdrawing money from all the banks and investing it in cryptocurrency, using cryptocurrency transfers and the banks don't make money on the transfer transactions, which is essentially their only earnings
Do you think all nations will be able to come to harmony with cryptocurrency?

'People are withdrawing money from all the banks and investing it in cryptocurrency, using cryptocurrency transfers, and the banks don't make money on the transfer transactions, which is essentially their only earnings.' I don't think that this is the primary reason why states are against cryptocurrency. Even if it is, it's a relatively small reason compared to many other significant factors. Cryptocurrencies can be used for illegal activities such as terror financing and money laundering. Governments also have the responsibility of protecting consumers, which is challenging due to the decentralized structure of crypto. Additionally, the volatility of crypto can bring financial instability.

And I don't believe that all nations will be able to harmonize with cryptocurrency anytime soon. Some countries have even banned them. However, the use of crypto for international transfers by major countries can catalyze change and adoption of crypto worldwide.
