Not sure what to think. I never wanted a completely electronic currency, but they make it sound so enticing with their emphasis on privacy. Obvious
ulterior motive there, but I'm definitely feeling the effects of their carefully worded sweet talk, though I am aware and will not give in to it.
In the end, if it doesn't some physical backing, it will fail. All it takes is one good solar flare and we can kiss all of our electronics goodbye
for good, including our fancy e-monies. But it wouldn't make it to that point. It's a freaking computer program, it's not 100% foolproof no matter
how intricate the programming is. Someone WILL find a way to break it, and I doubt it would take more than a month if it were to hit mainstream.
I'd put money on this thing actually taking off though, although I'm sure the government would take it over and do with it whatever they feel. But
it's the way society is headed unfortunately. Everything has to be done on our smartphones.
It's actually reminds me of our current currency... worthless, easy to lose/steal, and destined to fail. The ONLY redeeming quality I can really find
in it, it's one world currency without the need for one world government.
