A lot of the discussion on Bitcoin at the moment is mere babble. While we don’t anticipate that the price of Bitcoin will be hit by a massive crash any time soon, we are concerned that the discussion about the currency value of Bitcoin is overshadowing any useful discussion about how Bitcoin can help fight poverty around the world
, how it can combat financial crime
, and how it may even help end war
Beware the babble of financial commentators who are more interested in where and how to invest in - or avoid - Bitcoin. While not all the worthy aspirations for Bitcoin are likely to be realised either, it’s worth thinking deeply about its opportunities - and the implications of these to other world markets - before you dismiss it as another frothy tech-bubble.
