    Bitcoin today is far more efficient than even just 2 years ago. Its developing and evolving with each Bitcoin improvement proposal and every wallet upgrade and creative idea that entrepreneurs and software devs decide to try.
    The Lightning Network alone allows Bitcoin transactions to be instant and allow exponentially higher volume of transactions.
    Next few years will be very exciting for Bitcoin.

    using cash to buy crypto... get paid from your job in crypto...? no federal central bank, crypto company becomes payroll source...? do companies accept crypto and pay their employees in cash? do the companies who accept crypto pay their employees in crypto? do the water and power institutions accept crypto as payments? if it starts at the consumer, then it is sure to change everything else.

    Highly unlikely, Japan is a cash based society and has been for many generations. No sur-charges, No tracking and No banks to worry about. 'Cashless' technology in Japan is for the convenience of tourist and another source of revenue for Japanese companies. Many places still do not accept credit cards...lol They use 'suica' cards for vending machines, 7-11 stores and transit, which is like a US debit card you load cash on and is registered in your name for convenience.

    The Zionist agenda to make fiat currency worthless. Good job Shinzo Abe, for your service to destroying your own country for the interests of the globalist leaders.

    A money-free society is only possible if we advance both psychiclly and technologically that our means of survival can be completely taken care of without any need of currency. There is still plenty of work but more sophisticatedly done e.g. we predict illness and accidents and forewarn people so emergencies are largely reduced instead of busy 9-1-1 calls for ambulance, firefighters or police

    Anonymously? You are full of shit! Bitcoin follows bank secrecy act!
    Beast system possibly but not bitcoin=667
    united=6 states=6 dollar=6==666
    Fedcoin, Americoin, Ripple could be the next roth currency. If everyone says NO to their cryptocurrency, and it is not accepted, it will have no intrinsic value.
