Clinton said in a panel discussion in Singapore during the Bloomberg New Economic Forum:
“One more is that I hope nation-states start paying greater attention to is the surprise of cryptocurrencies. What looks like a fascinating and somewhat exotic practice to literally mine new coins for trading; has the potential for undermining nationwide currencies. From undermining the Dollar as the reserve currency. Perhaps starting with small ones but going much longer.”
