Bitcoin : la revanche inattendue des libertariens

Abstract : Serge Schweitzer, an economist and disciple of the Austrian School of Economics, has always displayed his libertarian sympathies. Following in the footsteps of economists such as Ludwig Von Mises or Murray Rothbard, he has always denounced the monopoly of governments in the production of money through central banks. This situation is now being called into question by a technological innovation: crypto-currencies (or cyber-currencies), foremost among which is Bitcoin. To honor Serge Schweitzer's career and his fight for a free currency, the author praises Bitcoin and outlines the main economic and political prospects offered by this innovation. Despite its revolutionary character from a technological and political point of view, Bitcoin faces regulatory barriers that will be difficult to overcome, and which the author analyzes in the conclusion of this article.
