India can be fertile ground for Bitcoin says Aaron Koenig, organiser of Bitcoin Exchange Berlin - The Economic Times | money money money | Scoop.it

A few central banks, including Reserve Bank of India, may have warned against use of Bitcoin, but India can well be the fertile ground on which it can flourish, thanks to its tech-savvy citizens and the millions of poor that are excluded from the financial system, says Aaron Koenig, organiser of Bitcoin Exchange Berlin, and a member of Global Bitcoin Alliance. The poor have mobile phones and that's all it takes to be part of the system, Koenig tells ET's Atmadip Ray.

Why Bitcoin Must Die. Long Live Bitcoin 2.0. - Forbes | money money money | Scoop.it

One day, there will be a global digital currency in widespread commercial use whose value will not be controlled by central banks.
