Al-Saadi told Al-Furat News, “The banking deal in Iraqi banks is very late, and dealing with Bitcoin needs automation and culture.” 
He added that “the culture of banking with modern systems is still far behind despite the introduction of ATM systems; however, their use is still stumbling and below the required level.” 
Al-Saadi stressed, “The Bitcoin currency is encrypted and modern, subject to its own laws that can be affected at any time.” 
Bitcoin is the first decentralized digital currency, without a central bank, that can be sent from one person to another through the Bitcoin network in a peer-to-peer manner without the need for a third party (intermediary such as banks), and network transfers are verified using encryption and recorded in a distributed ledger called a chain blocks.

Shafaq News/ The Head of the Legal Committee in the House of Representatives, MP Muhammad Anouz, announced today, Thursday, that work is currently underway to issue a parliamentary resolution obligating the government to submit the budget for the purpose of approval, noting that the constitution did not prevent the caretaker government from sending bills to Parliament.

In a statement received by Shafak News Agency, Anouz said, “The political blockage led to the delay in approving the budget and the disruption of bills, which cast a shadow on the country’s economic situation and the living reality of citizens.”

He added that “there are about 120 laws that have been transferred from the previous parliamentary session to this session, some of which affect the economic aspect.”

Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s government stumbled by sending the budget bill for 2022 before the Iraqi parliament in its previous session dissolved itself in preparation for the early elections that took place on October 10, 2021.

A number of specialists considered that the delay in approving the budget for the current year would negatively affect investment projects and delay ongoing projects, in addition to stopping the economic activities of the market in the country in general.

Is it time to delete zeros?  Economist commented

  {Economic: Al Furat News} An economist commented on the benefit and harm of deleting zeros from the Iraqi currency.

Nabil Al-Marsoumi told {Euphrates News}: “The process of deleting zeros from the dinar is a technical process that costs the state large sums of money as a result of destroying the current currency and issuing new ones.” 
He added that “the deletion works to reduce the cost of transactions only and does not affect the economic reality in anything because the purchasing power of the citizen will remain the same by deleting the zeros only, and does not raise the value of the dinar.” 
Al-Marsoumi stressed that the deletion of zeros “will have a very limited impact on prices.”
