这些天来点对点分布式的虚拟货币比特币似乎需要一剂强心剂,理查德·布兰森,这位身价亿万的企业家于去年时宣布维珍银河公司接受比特币支付太空旅行,而近日他又对比特币发表了言论,他认为比特币是“全球货币的先行者”。
 
说起在三角洲的4月刊天空杂志的采访中,布兰森简要地谈到了加密货币,他认为比特币的创造者是一个“天才”,他创建了一种突破性的技术,但布兰森同时也承认比特币存在一些缺陷,其中包括透明度,因为至今都没人知道中本聪是谁。
 
“它可能不是未来完美的全球货币,但它绝对是先行者,未来很有可能会出现一种透明的数字支付方式,比如说Twitter的的联合创始人杰克·多尔西就表示他旗下的公司正在从事制造一种很方便的信贷借记卡”布兰森补充道。
 
除了辩论比特币该归类为货币还是创新的电子支付工具,金融和技术专家们还推测难免会出现比特币的继任者。微软联合创始人比尔·盖茨二月份在reddit上预测数字货币在未来五年内很可能会改变银行体系,不过他并没指出比特币就是这项伟大任务的唯一工具。
 
在三月份的报道中称,一些人认为央行将进入虚拟货币市场,许多人认为市场将会因此而蒸腾,因为行业会因此而变得“有说服力和公信力”
其实无论哪种情况都表明,比特币将会作为一项重要的技术创新记载在历史书上。

Sir Richard Branson: Bitcoin is ‘the pioneer of a global currency’ - See more at: http://www.pfhub.com/sir-richard-branson-bitcoin-is-the-pioneer-of-a-global-currency

These days, it seems that the peer-to-peer decentralized virtual currency bitcoin needs a shot in the arm because the negative publicity it has garnered over the past month or two. Enter: Sir Richard Branson.

Branson, a billionaire entrepreneur who made headlines late last year after announcing Virgin Galactic would accept bitcoins for space flight, reaffirmed his commitment to the digital currency by calling it “the pioneer of a global currency.”

Speaking in an interview in the April issue of Delta’s SKY Magazine, Branson briefly touched upon the cryptocurrency and labeled its creator as “a genius” for producing bitcoins and creating a technological breakthrough. He did concede, though, that there are some flaws in it, including transparency and that nobody knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is.

richard branson“It may not be the perfect global currency of the future yet, but it’s the pioneer of a global currency,” stated Branson.

Is bitcoin the future of global currency or will somebody else establish something better?

Echoing earlier sentiments from other investors and entrepreneurs, Branson argued that the future will likely bring about a successful digital payments method with transparency, such as Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter, and his Square firm, a company that specializes in making credit and debit card transactions simpler.

“He’s the kind that’s more likely to come up with the currency of the future that would be completely transparent,” Branson noted. “Maybe using the Virgin Money brand.”

This isn’t the first time that a prominent individual has espoused the possibility of a virtual currency of the future that would perhaps the correct the past mistakes of bitcoin, litecoin and other cryptocurrencies dominating the marketplace today.

Aside from the debate as whether to classify bitcoin as a currency or innovative electronic payment tool, finance and tech experts have speculated that there will inevitably be a successor to bitcoin.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates responded to questions on Reddit in February and projected that the digital currency industry could soar within the next five years and could very well revolutionize the banking system. However, he did not cite bitcoin as being the only tool to perform that function.

“The foundation is involved in digital money but unlike Bitcoin it would not be anonymous digital money. In Kenya M-pesa is being used for almost half of all transactions,” wrote Gates.

“Digital money has low transaction costs which is great for the poor because they need to do financial transactions with small amounts of money. Over the next 5 years I think digital money will catch on in India and parts of Africa and help the poorest a lot.”

We even reported in March that some believe central banks will enter the virtual currency market. Many believe this will transpire because the industry has become both “persuasive and credible” within the past year.

“It’s fair to point out that even with today’s very low interest rates, there’s something very attractive about having your own currency and, basically, those bills that we carry around with us don’t pay any interest at all,” said Peter Warburton, director of U.K.-based Economic Perspectives, an economic consulting firm, in an interview with Newsmax. “It’s free money for the issuing body and so this is a privilege that central banks want to hang on to.”

Whether or not bitcoin will go the way of MySpace or persist as being as dominant as Facebook remains to be seen. Whatever the case, bitcoin will likely be placed in the history books as an important innovation in technology.
