President of Marshall Islands Survives Crypto-Infused No-Confidence Vote

The Marshall Islands already has a tendency of getting its own national cryptocurrency. The president of the Pacific Islands, Hilda Heine has further extended a no-confidence vote that possessed the capability to unhinge her presidential status and that of the Sovereign (SOV), the country’s official cryptocurrency spearheaded by her administration.  Nikkei Asian Review reports that President Heine blamed a “referendum about our own politics.”
The Marshall Islands Parliament members have spoken, and the even result of 16/16 has meant the failure of the vote of no confidence. Opposition to the president led by Senator Casten Nemra required a majority of the votes to triumph over her. Reports have revealed that Finance Minister Brenson Wase specified that plans for the country’s official cryptocurrency, Sovereign (SOV), have remained the same and is expected to be issued through an ICO. It will possess requirements to meet up with International Monetary Fund standards and that of the U.S. and Europe too.
The President faced quite strong opposition but never for once, got less motivated about the intentions behind the attempted ouster. Some bodies like the IMF were reluctant to accept the idea that the small nation would possess its own digital currency. The disapproval was then a big part of the reason a group of senators started up the no-confidence vote stating that the cryptocurrency was harmful to the reputation of the country’s government.
Hilda Heine not only beat the odds but also China, as the country was rumored to be pressuring the Parliament in a bid to oust the president. Reportedly, China had the aim of creating a country within the Marshall Islands. The sights were already set on one of more than two dozen of the Marshall Islands atolls. The Heine administration refused the intentions of China in light of “growing Chinese influence in the Pacific Islands,” according to Heine cited in The Guardian, coming at a time the Pacific Island is trying to maintain its independence.
The Marshall Islands consists of 1,200 plus volcanic islands and a number of coral atolls. They gained independence from the U.S. in 1986, but their official currency has remained the U.S. dollar. The country possesses a single commercial bank that is limited in several ways including the fact that it produces no currency of their own, and it offers insufficient services for its residents.
The Marshalls have experienced several issues resulting in restricted access to funds for the locals. This is one of the reasons the nation plans to adopt cryptocurrency; to eliminate the problem of limited access to funds. The country with its less than 53,000 population would be perfect for an official digital currency, a place where the adoption of the Sovereign (SOV) can easily take off.
