Bitcoin replaces central, not commercial, banks

Here is my thoughts on bitcoin powered remittance:

Stage 1 is companies in each country cooperating with each other to offer transfer and conversion between two fiats. Each company can be local to a country, does not need license to do foreign exchange. They can be an exchange, or work with a local exchange. They can offer short time fixed exchange rate gurarantee through options, cooperation with someone offering options, or just make a deal with a few individuals who offer to take that exhange rate risk. No single company has to be an international company. They can offer transfer fiat to fiat.

Stage 2 is when one party in the remittance transfer is a bitcoin user. In this case, only one local company need to be involved. For instance, a sender in Europe is a bitcoin user, the receiver somewhere in Asia is a fiat user. The bitcoin user transfers fiat to to a local company in Asia operating as an exchange, who sends fiat to the receiver. For this to work, bitcoin adoption has to increase among the foreign workers.

Stage 3 is of course when both parties are bitcoin users, who do not need to convert to fiat right away, but will do it when they need to.



As far as I'm concerned Abra Global has nailed it down for the remittance use case.

I personally use rebit.ph on a regular basis and they are an exceptional service. 0% fee. Same day delivery.

Banks are charging big fees for overseas CC purchases and not bothering to inform customers which option increases fees (pay in local or Australian dollars).

not sure, might just be Australian banks doing so? Although I assume its an industry thing. Dynamic currency conversion, one to read up on.

this has been happening for many years now. For all UK banks and overseas cash withdrawals, and most card transactions.

it's difficult for me to see how the $DJT gets all the way back up to set a new high from here and at this time.  and if it doesn't, then yes, i do think that's a problem:

Bitcoin represents a fundamental change in the very fiber of the social order from which regimes are woven. I and I'm sure several other people have been predicting this for quite some time: incentives to ally oneself with the state break down when you can hold and transact money with complete secrecy.

This made me laugh.  Could the Ross verdict now get overturned becasue of this?... That would be side side-splitting funny.

Almost as funny as being called 'Carl Mark Force IV'   sounds like a German physics scale.

I didn't check but I assume this is the article where Daniel says even gvt officials might already be co-opted into the Bitcoin community. I agree.
