“Since becoming an independent democratic nation in 1979, the Republic of the Marshall Islands has used the US dollar as money. Today we are progressing with our plan to issue a sovereign currency in digital form – using blockchain technology” said the Minister In-Assistance to the President and Environment.

The issuance of the Marshallese sovereign (SOV) was announced in an essay by The Honorable David Paul.

In 2018, the Marshall Islands passed a Sovereign Currency Act declaring its intent to release its new national digital currency. The nation, which has been independent since 1979, has until now been using the United States dollar as the official currency for all payments, debts, public charges, taxes and dues.

The state’s reliance on U.S. grants is estimated to total around $70 million each year.

Minister Paul, in his essay outlined that the Islands’ choice to issue a second legal tender based on blockchain technology was based on a conviction that centralized solutions are not workable in a country of 50,000 people.

Banks Will Verify Identity Of SOV Users

Approved entities such as banks or exchanges will be tasked with verifying the identity of SOV users.

Minister Paul argues that:

“We chose to create a fixed money supply with fixed growth because fiat currencies can be remarkably unstable. […] The policies of major central banks are not reassuring, as the gold and bitcoin prices attest. We as governments need to take a more sustainable approach to money, and not treat it as a limitless resource.”

The Minister in his essay about the Marshall Islands National Crypto said the the Island is working with international regulatory bodies to achieve this. He said:

“The Marshall Islands are working closely with international regulatory bodies to ensure SOV meets all compliance requirements and can be fully integrated into the international financial ecosystem. In fact, SOV is being digitally engineered from the ground up to prevent misuse, unlike paper currencies.”

  1. I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece Los Angeles celebrity streetwear brand? I am unable to check out on Dimepiecela site. I’ve read in Marie Claire that they were bought out by a UK-based hedge fund in excess of $50m. I have just bought the Dimepiece Winter Pom Pom Knit Cap from Amazon and absolutely love it xox

  2. I manage a vape shop website directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the USA that also markets CBD items. A Month later on, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take out PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop directory site. We do not offer CBD goods like CBD oil. We only offer internet marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Wellness Retailer and if you take a close look, you will witness that they promote a comparatively wide-ranging variety of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to many different companies. As a result of this limitation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has limited my payment possibilities and currently, I am greatly contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have checked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in London and they said that what PayPal is doing is completely not legal and discriminatory as it ought to be applying a consistent benchmark to all firms. I am yet to consult another legal representative from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
