That's cheap, still I'm not a McDonald's fan so that price would still not get me drinking it.

Many people here and elsewhere say crypto has no value, worthless, not backed by anything. Many people and businesses seem to think otherwise.


I don't think this is what Shultz was saying.

Right now Bitcoin is slow and expensive. It's a good store of value, but it isn't nearly as spendable as it once was. The issue is scaling. Bitcoin is going to be outpaced as far as scaling goes.

Scaling, interoperability, low or no fees, this is what people are currently looking for with regard to adoption. That's what Howard Shultz is saying. Bitcoin really isn't the end of the line. The era of the "alt" coin is coming to an end as the values of the so-called "alt" coins are expressed more in their usability than in market share or price. Anything that isn't Bitcoin is an altcoin. That said, Bitcoin is going to turn itself into an altcoin eventually.

Cryptocurrencies are never going away.

Fiat currency isn't backed by anything, but the Faith and Credit of the Federal reserve.

DOH!.

Howabout Starbucks launch their own crypto currency called, maybe, the 'StarBuck'?

In everyway a Starbucks card is as good as Bitcoin.

The only difference a Starbucks card is material whereas a Bitcoin is not.

Wise move, maybe you can still buy a cup of coffee with a bitcoin somewhere if it collapses completely.

Although an alcoholic beverage might be preferable.

I'll bet they go the McDonnalds route and accept Omisego.

I think omisego is going to be accepted by a lot of retailers in the very near future.

Guess what was mentioned in the CNN article? OmiseGO. Check it out now before it's too late.

OmiseGO isn't a form of payment. It's a DEX which allows retailers to accept any form or payment they want. For example: If you own a store in Canada and I'm from the United States, I can use any form of currency I want IE Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP and so forth, I could even use USD or any other currency, send it from my wallet, into the DEX and the DEX spits it out as a Canadian Dollar in less than a second once Plasma is introduced.

OmiseGO is going to be life changing, it's HUGE!

Edit To Add: The OmiseGO token is only used to validate the transactions in the network. So if you own OMG you put it into a contract for X amount of months so transactions can get validated using them. For you allowing your tokens to validated, you will be paid in any form of currency you desire as the staking rewards.
