Governments are getting into the game. They’re looking to issue currencies on a national level, creating a much more centralized monetary system. They’ve started a crackdown on Bitcoin mining, on Binance trading, and on some stablecoins. Earlier, the US Congress expressed concern about Libra, SEC shut down Telegram Grams, and others.
Intercoin’s approach has always been to serve local communities, helping them collectively make decisions and manage their own currency, rather than simply enabling anonymous peer-to-peer transactions between random people. It would be interesting to see how our goals and approach are welcomed by federal governments, as it seeks to empower and strengthen their local communities.
