    The Australian government on Wednesday said it would commence a review into the regulatory architecture of the country’s payments system to ensure it is fit for purpose and can support continued innovation.

    According to Treasurer Josh Frydenberg, the review will look at whether the existing regulatory architecture of the payments system is suitable given rapid changes in technology, how to drive increased productivity through innovation and competition, assess government payment systems, and analyse global trends to determine how Australia can remain internationally competitive.

    “The regulatory architecture of the payments system has served Australia well, but has remained largely unchanged for over two decades. This comes at a time when consumer appetite for using different payment methods, like contactless payments, has accelerated,” he said in a statement.

    “It is critical that the regulatory architecture supporting our payments system promotes innovation and competition to ensure that costs to business are minimised, consumer experience is enhanced, and there is confidence in the security of the system.”

    The review will be chaired by King and Wood Mallesons partner Scott Farrell, who also undertook the formative review that led to the Consumer Data Right regime, and involve consultation from industry, consumer and privacy advocates, and other interested parties to develop a report and recommendations.

    In a moment of deliverance for cryptocurrencies, institutional investors are turning to Bitcoin as a hedge against fiat currencies that are losing value.

    The world’s preeminent cryptocurrency is on track to hit US$1 million (A$1.4 million) per coin in the next five years as a result of a wall of institutional money looking to tap into Bitcoin appreciation – that’s the verdict from former Goldman Sachs hedge fund manager Raoul Pal, the man who founded financial news platform Real Vision.

    Bitcoin prices have quickly grown from around US$13 (A$12) per coin in late 2012 to as high as US$20,000 (A$25,000) in 2017, before collapsing to as low as US$3,000 (A$4,500) in 2019.

    The volatile gyrations have led many market participants to declare the cryptocurrency as an unsuitable asset and far too risky to be considered as a significant long-term investment.

    However, things are quickly changing with institutional fund managers seeing Bitcoin in a completely different light.

    Bitcoin allure

    According to Mr Pal, heavy-hitting institutional investors are now eyeing up Bitcoin as a serious vehicle for long-term investment and portfolio allocation.

    Earlier this month, Mr Pal revealed Bitcoin holdings in his portfolio were now “above 50%”, having previously been equally distributed between United States dollars, gold, equities, and Bitcoin.
