    The last thing the world economy needs is more currencies – crypto or otherwise. There are already sufficient means of transacting long-distance. The Bitcoin is an idea whose time will never come. It should not be considered legal tender, period.

    Bitcoins and other cryotocurrencies will fade out since all other currencies are already bei g used in e-commerce. When the world becomes cashless all other currencies which are physical now would be migrated to electronic usad and bitcoin and others would washed out.
