Visa, banks and the petrodollar are probably on their way out and will be replaced by a better technology: crypto. Same as horse carts were replaced by automobiles. Don’t look at the past, look at the future.

In case you didn’t get the memo, bitcoin’s blockchain is public, transparent and immutable. This is a lousy tool for crime. US dollars are a much better bet and much more popular among criminals.

Here’s an excerpt from Forbes magazine:

“According to the UN, it is estimated that between 2% and 5% of global GDP ($1.6 to $4 trillion) annually is connected with money laundering and illicit activity. This means that criminal activity using cryptocurrency transactions is much smaller than fiat currency and its use is going down year by year.”
