I've heard that the state of Utah and the Mormon church was interested in bitcoins. The state of Utah just passed some legislation to allow gold and silver to be treated as legal currencies. If the Mormon church realizes the power of bitcoins, maybe the Vatican will too.
I have a hard time believing that. Where did you hear this?
This is from over a year ago. Google it. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/22/utah-gold-standard-silver_n_865333.html
Yes I know all about the Gold and Silver legal tender. I live in Utah. I'm talking about the interest in bitcoins.
Sorry, when they grouped it in with the Mormon church, I thought they were merely making a conclusion based off the gold being legal tender and their insults towards the Roman Catholic Church. I have no knowledge about Utah liking bitcoins and searching the forums Mike's name is the only thing that keeps popping up when browsing for Utah.
