IMF report: Bitcoin has become a necessary financial tool for preserving wealth in times of financial instability

According to BlockBeats, on April 22, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently released a report stating that in the context of global financial instability, Bitcoin (BTC) is increasingly becoming a key channel for cross-border capital flows. The report highlights the large volume of transactions from countries such as Argentina and Venezuela, where citizens face hyperinflation and strict financial controls. In these regions, Bitcoin has become a necessary financial tool for preserving wealth and entering global markets, not just a speculative investment. However, the IMF report also warned that the widespread use of Bitcoin for cross-border flows may bring potential risks. The lack of supervision and the anonymity provided by cryptocurrencies may complicate regulators' efforts to monitor and control financial transactions to prevent illegal activities such as money laundering.
