Bitcoin has been banned in Russia (maybe the coins are too much "the same"?),
and Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies are being promoted. Canada's recent
federal budget mentions that "The New Harperite Government of Canada" (or
whatever they are calling themselves this week, flush with a free case of beer) is
going to be paying extra attention to digital currencies, trying to find out if
criminals are using it.
Meanwhile, another financial instrument is being largely ignored ...
(Hey, it's Friday, and, what with all currency being based on [largely
unsubstantiated] trust, I thought it was cute :-)
