When a country attaches its exchange rate to a specific currency of another country, it’s called currency pegging, which is also called a fixed exchange rate. Many countries attach the value of their currency in a predetermined ratio to a more stable currency. Since the US dollar is the world’s most widely held reserve currency, it is not surprising that most currencies are pegged to it.
Over 66 countries are pegging their currencies to the US dollar. Oil-producing nations such as Oman, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, whose major oil trading partner is the US, all peg their currencies to the US dollar to maintain stability. Countries that are big on tourism, such as the Caribbean nations, including Bermuda, Barbados, and the Bahamas, peg their currencies to the US dollar because tourism is mostly processed with it. China pegs its currency to the US dollar because most of its products are exported to the United States, hence preserving its competitive pricing. Countries that rely heavily on the financial industry, such as Singapore, Hongkong, and Malaysia, peg their currencies to the US dollar to keep their protection from the surprises and movements in the forex market. These and many more other countries attach their currencies to US dollars due to various reasons.
Next to the US dollar is euros. 25 countries are pegging their currencies to euros, and 17 eurozone members use it as their currency. Undeniably, these countries see the good in pegging currencies, that’s why they are doing it. However, one must also see the other side of the coin. Since their monetary policy is determined by another country, there is a huge foreign influence in their domestic affairs just like it was in the case of the attack in Sterling pounds in 1992, when Britain pegged its currency to the German Deutschemark. When Germany suffered from inflation, it increased the interest rate, thus the British pounds got severely hit since the Bank of England no longer had control over their own affairs. It had cost them £3.3 billion.
Further to this, currency pegging can allow a massive difference between a currency’s fundamental value and its market value, thereby causing a deviation as Central Banks artificially manipulate the value. Being pegged in exchanges has always been a threat to the independence of buyers and sellers. The new feature of the newest generation of digital market Virie leaves this threat behind forever.
