Thomas Jordan, the Chairman of Swiss National Bank, declared that the cryptocurrency, for example bitcoin, is not a currency but is an investment. He considers important the question of who and how has access to the money of a central bank, and not about what technologies are used. He also said that central banks are intensively working on the issue of regulating cryptocurrency and the attitude towards them.
He also believes that the impact of crypto-currency on the financial system as a whole is very important, and therefore central banks should monitor this because in this area there are still many unresolved issues.
Then he said that the SNB will try to reduce pressure on the Swiss franc and at the same time make investments in it less attractive. At the same time, the Swiss franc will remain "highly valued".
