Bitcoin and the Road to Decentralized Money
The internet economy needs internet money.
It has already changed the face of communication (voip) and entertainment (torrent). It is changing education (moocs), manufacturing (3D print) and power production (smart grid).
And it is changing money. Innovators, hackers and activists are using the Internet to reshape the financial system and fundamentally transform the way we think of credit, investment and money.
They are changing the way we use money from the way we spend to the way we lend and borrow. They are taking money out of the system we know and bringing it beyond banks. They are bringing financial services to parts of the globe where it was previously inconceivable.
All these changes and innovations are steps on the road to decentralized money. A road that may ultimately lead to the end of national currencies and central banks. The ultimate bank run: the run on the world’s central banks.
