Bank of England to consider adopting digital currency

The Bank of England is examining how Britain could adopt a bitcoin-style digital currency. As part of this BoE plans to meet with the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank (ECB), the Sveriges Riksbank, the Bank of Canada, the Swiss National Bank and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) to pool research and experiences.

My only concern here is that one day digital currencies, if successful end up replacing cash all together. Cash in hand is a beautiful thing and still the best way to make a great deal.

This is not adopting. This is stealing another person’s creative ideas and then using it against the population. This was supposed to be part of the counter culture not becoming main stream.

I saw a crypto ATM the other day. We already have paper with arbitrary value, let's not have invisible coins worth even less. Honestly I'd rather go back to a barter system.

They’re trying to break free from the tiny hats! Good luck! We know what happens when you do that!

No thanks, unless it's an option rather than an imposition.
