Should skype be worried about this? Well Bitcoin's micro payments are very well placed to disrupt this environment soon.

" Since Skype emerged in late 2003, Voice over the Internet (VoiP) technology hasn't had many improvements. The whole field of calling other people through the internet has been almost totally dominated by Skype despite the 2013 introduction of the open-source WebRTC (Web-based, Real-Time-Calling) protocol released by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which has been built into Chrome, Firefox and Opera browsers already. "

You do not need to download or install any software, like Skype.

“WebRTC is an open source project that aims to add real time communication capabilities to web browsers. ”

I think eventually most centralized programs like skype will get overtaken by open source and decentralized ones. Spying and security will be a big issue and we all know companies like skype etc work hand in hand with the nsa and this will come back to haunt them at some point.

I like the idea of using VoIP more and more compared to these "traditional" phone systems. There is still a long way to go for BitPhone and other companies though.
