“While some people view bitcoin as a crypto-currency or wealth store (or even a religion), Mr. Vessenes described bitcoin as an asset class. He said it is a “distributed trust technology” where trust in a currency is no longer bound to a central bank, but across the Internet and via peer-to-peer networks instead. Bitcoin “does for money what the Internet did for publishing,” said Mr. Vessenes.”
That last statement makes me think about the increase in crypto-currencies as self-publishing, where individuals would be able to restrict transactions to their own crypto-currency. In addition, I believe a government or the United States will issues their own Crypto-Currency.
