Abstract

Cryptocurrency networks and Blockchains are decentralized systems, functioning on distributed consensus. Fiat currencies on the other hand are issued, maintained and supervised by a sovereign central authority. RSBCs are Regulated And Sovereign Backed Cryptocurrencies (based on the K-Y Protocol) i.e. they are essentially decentralized cryptocurrencies floated by a central (sovereign) authority; it presents a paradox; known as the K-Y paradox. This paper explores the various dimensions of the K-Y paradox and its resolution.
