The wide spreading of the disease has seriously led to acute shortage of working capital and has even driven many major industries to bankruptcy globally. Because of this drastic effect, the emergence of new currency in the market has sparked fears which is akin to the global financial crisis in the year 2008. Dating back in the year 2008 of economic turmoil, then British Prime Minister Gordon Brown pioneered the model of recapitalization of the United Kingdom which became the European standard and was accepted by Eurozone central banks. The total estimated package cost came to be around $2 trillion for European Union states. The issuing of new currency by most of the banks were funded bailouts by European central banks.

The bond markets and equity are also some of the factors which can be affected. The international trade and other global payment settlements between the vendors will also be going to be affected by this.

If it happens to be true, then the leading digital currency will become dominant and the world’s reserve currency. However, there is a possibility for the improvement in transparency and for building a mass faith via blockchain technology regarding commercial papers and bond trading.
