+ - Ecuador to forge ahead with State-Backed Digital Currency

Submitted by jaeztheangel
jaeztheangel writes: Ecuador's government has approved plans to start a new Digital Currency backed by the state. With defaults in recent history, and dwindling oil reserves is this a brave move, or a foolish one?

Congress last month approved legislation to start a digital currency for use alongside the U.S. dollar, the official tender in Ecuador. Once signed into law, the country will begin using the as-yet-unnamed currency as soon as October.
