US Dollar — When Will it Collapse?

This shift is evidenced by Russia’s declaration of intent to pursue de-dollarization and by China and France’s successful completion of an LNG gas trade utilizing the Chinese yuan. As a result of these developments, there has been a decrease in reliance on the US dollar.

Could the US dollar collapse?

The possibility of a currency collapsing is when that currency loses all its use cases and value. A currency, or money in general, has value because of the belief that it has value and also because of the value given by the government.

A currency can collapse for various reasons. These include hyperinflation, political and economic instability, and the high debt of a country.
