Digital currency (a/k/a “cryptocurrency”) is the future of money, according to witnesses at a recent Congressional hearing.

To the extent backed by stable central banks, moreover, cryptocurrencies could reduce some of the risks that dominated the news of late. To play the obvious pun, the rise of digital currencies will not come without cost. There will be winners and losers throughout the ecosystem, whether it be investors, financial institutions, retailers, consumers, .... you name it. Upheaval is likely to be the order of the day, for years to come, as currency and financial markets are transformed.
