Thousands of confirmed cases, hundreds of deaths and the spread to the 5 continents of the planet have given 2019 nCov the classification of a pandemic. Faced with this situation, thousands of corporations and companies have decided to send their workers to their homes, in an attempt to stop a further spread of the virus that could compromise more lives.

In a joint effort, several countries have even determined to have a total quarantine, forbidding entry or exit of people from their geographical limits, which has resulted in panic in commercial and financial environments.

Contingency plans are being created, but the reality is that financial markets are moving at the rate of future expectations, and in a moment of the pandemic, the future is uncertain, making the capital of less stable economies It moves towards safer scenarios, due to the uncertainty generated by the Coronavirus 2019 nCov, which produces an economic collapse.

Cryptocurrencies do not escape this situation. Crypto investors panicked on March 12 when an estimated $ 1 billion was withdrawn from the digital asset market. Some experts affirm that this situation occurred thanks to the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell by 9.99% by the increase of the number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus 2019 nCov and the fall in the price of oil, a scenario only comparable to the Fall of markets in the 2008 crisis. However, a new moment of accumulation seems to be appearing, where it is expected that the market will focus more on individuals than on large investors, making it an excellent time for accumulation of crypto assets.

The current financial situation only demonstrates the vulnerability of financial markets to situations of collective panic, in a globalized world where news travels at incredible speed.

There is still no talk of unemployment levels, however in a possible moment of quarantine in countries that are global suppliers of products and services, the reality of new business models appears and this is where cryptocurrencies, could become the protagonists in a global market that cannot be stopped and needs to be effective quickly.

A new way of working, which corporate giants like Google have already begun to apply, present remote management, where workers carry out their tasks from their homes, to prevent the further spread of the Coronavirus. Thousands of people receive cash payments or bank deposits, but with mobility restrictions, this practice, at least right now, is compromised, making digital payments a great solution for employers and employees. Through wallet services (most are free and easy to install and download to any smartphone), employers can instantly make payments to their employees through cryptocurrencies. Indeed, the cryptocurrency market is currently in a state of volatility, the volatility of product prices around the world is also true, as well as the collapse of some banking platforms and traditional remittance services, so it is no longer a guarantee to receive payments only in FIAT currencies. In many countries such as Venezuela, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, and Colombia, there are commercial ecosystems that have solutions to operate with cryptocurrencies easily, simply and quickly at any level.
