What is the view of the former Secretary of State? She paid particular attention to how the social media platforms could be combined with cryptocurrency markets to help state and non-state actors destabilize other countries. According to Clinton, this could potentially happen through manipulating markets, creating hype, or even organizing a financial meltdown through social media “troll farms.”

“We’re looking at not only states such as China, Russia, or others manipulating technology of all kinds to their advantage. We’re looking at non-state actors, destabilizing countries, and the dollar as the reserve currency.”

What events preceded it? Earlier, Clinton spoke out against the problems that cryptocurrency may create for the global dominance of the US dollar. She told the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Singapore that although cryptocurrencies have become an interesting technology, they may have negative consequences for the US and other countries.
