Are cryptocurrencies subject to the same border restrictions as foreign currency and cash? Where are bitcoins “located”? What happens when money is data? What are the geopolitical implications of borderless money? Bitcoins ‘live’ on the blockchain, on a global network, in “the cloud.” When you make a transaction, bitcoin is not transmitted anywhere; it simply changes ownership. National “flag” money went from being a store of value, medium of exchange, and unit of account into a system-of-control for playing political games. It removes the power of central banks to take entire populations hostage under hyperinflation experiments. Therefore the framework of money transmission laws is obsolete and fatally undermined.
This is part of a talk which took place at Pebble Beach for the Capgemini CXO Forum on November 1-3rd 2017 in Monterey, California.
