Distribution of basic income in via the normal way is going to be difficult
The roll-out of a universal basic income, it seemed to be somewhat in the long run. However, by the outbreak of the corona virus, the government had to act quickly. A lot of Americans have had or will get a one time check of $ 1,200, given by the U.s. government to help businesses and individuals to help them.
For many Americans, the money was in april, and their bank accounts credited, as are others in the US and abroad, and their checks only saw it coming the beginning of march. As many as four million people will soon be using the post office pre-paid debit card to receive.
Nevertheless, there are a lot of problems with the current way of doing things, because Americans are reporting that they can see the status of their payment is to not be able to confirm it on the IRS web site, or simply does not receive.
Can cryptocurrency help.
Who knows, that is the distribution of the basic amount easier to go through the cryptocurrency. Yang has been at the supreme court and proved that he is an advocate of crypto and the blockchain. It would, therefore, think that it is a universal basic income will be distributed cryptocurrency.
However, there are other groups that do this. A Non-profit organization of the Hedge for Humanity, the team behind the cryptomunt Old, works in the form of a universal basic income in via the blockchain. Each of the assets that can be used in order to reach out to as a benefit in kind. Think of the cash, but in shares, and cryptocurrency.
Right now, cryptocurrency is a way to provide at the time of this coronacrisis. We will keep track of the developments in the upcoming weeks!
