The move of sovereign Nations to Crypto has begun
« on: April 01, 2015, 01:17:52 PM »

Greece seriously contemplating a move to bitcoin as their national currency.

What I find most interesting in the article is their desire to move away from oppressive third party lenders.

Hear that in the distance?  Those are crypto's drums of war marching on the castles of fiat...

Greece can't go into Bitcoin for the national currency legally .. They would first need to exit from the European union ..

I believe that is what the article is inferring.  It is most likely what is going to happen anyway.

The winds of change are blowing and the idea of sovereign currency has taken root.  Time will do the rest.  Oh and BitShares :)
