The process leading Bitcoin to the status of world reserve currency could take a decade, according to Kraken’s growth lead.

Bitcoin has a good chance of becoming the world reserve currency, although we are  “at least ten years away from that”, said Kraken’s head of growth Dan Held in an exclusive interview with Cointelegraph.

He says that in developing countries, Bitcoin is mainly valuable for avoiding censorship — while in the western world, Bitcoin is attractive as a hedge against central banks’ money printing.
