Always good to see what people believe the future will bring.


I am looking forward to reading what you think of the concepts being presented by one of the Innotribe finalists, P2P Cash. The upshot: Bankcards needed bankerly cooperation and uniform technological standards to explode merchant and consumer acceptance. Is not the same true for mobile money transfers? The industry needs to cooperate on the exchange while competing on product and service.

Great post ! I wanted to clarify my analogy to the intergalactic transporter :)
I believe p2p technology, like bitcoin, enables the transfer of exchange between people frictionless and in the speed of light.
while I think the roads analogy is great to illustrate the p2p decentralized form of p2p, cars are still slower than trains, where today the "banking trains" are at T+3 (yes most wis take 3 days!) and p2p is real time. So in that comparison you could say that p2p digital exchange is more like a Startrek intergalactic transporter compared to today's trains .
