Circle working to build an "Internet of Value"...

Recommended Posts

"Part of making money work the way that the Internet works is overcoming the arcane, siloed systems of currencies and bank transfers that exist today, and making it work the same way that we send and receive email or browse the Web... No one needs yet another closed transaction network. A critical element of Circle’s “money without borders” open value proposition is blockchain technology."

"He added that it uses the Bitcoin blockchain because it's the only one that actually works, that has scale, security and liquidity so that you can move value in and out of it... We are not religious about that. This is a suite of protocols that we integrate under the hood to enable people to transmit value, and as other public blockchains emerge like Ethereum or future generations of bitcoin that may not even be called bitcoin, we will of course take advantage of those." -- http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/bitcoin-graduate-circle-launches-free-social-payment-app-uk-barclays-1553353

Funny, I got an email from Circle today but about their GBP offering:

Quote

It’s official! You can now pay friends and get paid with just an email or phone number, and magically move between GBP and USD — with zero fees. So your American mate can finally pay you back for the fish ‘n’ chips when he visited.
