Bitcoin Will Fix Remittances With Or Without The Western Unions Of The World

But much like Blockbuster’s (and banks’) short-sightedness and defensive posturing in the 2000s, Western Union runs the risk of soon evolving into nothing more than a Wikipedia entry. Bitcoin is a technology like video streaming, not a company like Netflix. It’s not trying to preserve revenue or please shareholders. And it won’t fall victim to leadership pulling it into odd markets on a whim.

Bitcoin is a technology that, other than Internet and mobile, could very well end up being the most important we’ve seen in the last several decades.

Remittances, alone, is where Bitcoin can make its value known in due time. If the alternative is the same old same old, it's a no brainer that those that rely on such transfers will require a switch to the legit side of things before you know it. This is one of the biggest things that developers and business folk should focus on as I think it will be one of the strengths that Bitcoin could showcase sooner rather than later in the overall scheme of things.

There will first need to be infrastructure or systems established to permit conversion of bitcoin to local currency before bitcoin remittance can flourish.
