I shot Robert Marshall an email about bitcoin last night after hearing this.  It has all of the features they want and more.  If others do that, maybe they'll consider it.

I did too.  Got a response the email had been forwarded to Marshal for consideration.  We'll see.

Politicians will never understand Bitcoin. We few on this forum are the only nation that understands and will survive the currency war. Let the states join the race to the bottom. Let the goldbugs fear the metal detector toting highwaymen. Let the wall street and fifth avenue wizards lose their tongues to hft. Bitcoin doesn't lie, cheat, or steal.

Virginia would be smart to build an ASIC mining rig and purchase Bitcoin before some other commonwealth drives up the price, but they won't because unlike the founding fathers in America, politicians have no vision.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

It's the difference between politics and statesmanship

There's a more in-depth covering of this story in Forbes

Please disregard Litecoin and Zcash badges to the left. I have just gathered they are an April fool's joke!

You're probably right. I'd much rather Iceland adopted Bitcoin as its currency anyway  Grin

It was not covered in the interview but not according to the Forbes piece.  There he appears to be talking about a new currency with a gold standard!
