seriously,
this is borderline stupid.
one currency-  bitcoin, litecoin etc - universal
nationalistic currency seems like going back to stupid pointless ideals.
bitcoin is doing something of making 1 currency, universal why put up unnecessary barriers or requirements by making currencies/property based on nationalities.

opposite of progress

ok

Totally agreed. Well.. after the "success" of Aurora coin, some people have been trying to scam people's money by launching a national/regional coin.

This is exactly the case of HongKongCoin (a Mainland Chinese coin).  Angry

Check this thread out for why HongKongCoin is a SCAM!

If you don't expect overseas cables and other Internet-sharing mediums to continue, whether in the event of censorship at source points, an EMP-heavy WW3, or some other situation, it's possible to see some benefits to having national "sub-coins," where Bitcoin remains the International standard, but where these coins can pick up where BTC left off in case of catastrophe - especially on islands. It's super-easy to convert bitcoins to altcoins and vice versa, so - at least from a super-paranoid perspective - I see it as something definitely not worth fighting merely on the basis that they're supposedly geographically- or politically-restricted. As for buying them, though - I wouldn't because I don't hoard bottlecaps in case of nuclear apocalypse, either.

I like the idea of PlanetDollar, it aims to distribute to everyone. Currently implemented with Facebook, but I'm sure there could be other implementations (vkontakte, etc.)
