Someone should try to contact Varoufakis, Liondanni?!!
@bitsapphire - AFAIK .. you were getting in contact with him on last hackathon in Singapure... don't you?
I actually had the chance to have a great discussion with him before he became finance minister, back when he was at Valve. He is among the smartest people I know.
Bitshares is not at the stage where it can help Greece. We are still at the innovation and product development stage. Though Bitshares is both the most advanced tech and community (we already made and fixed the technical and community mistakes Ethereum is just starting to go through). No government should even consider using crypto until it gets to the industrial-grade level, which is another 1-3 years in the future. Patience my friends.
That said, I would not be surprised if a government switched their entire financial system to crypto within the next 5-10 years. I am pretty sure, that if the tech was ready V-man would definitely consider issuing IOUs redeemable at interest and usable for tax payment. That would be the ideal solution to the Greek crisis atm and he has written about this already in his blog.
