The one and ONLY value of a cryptocurrency is that it can be reliably traded secretly. There is simply NO other reason to use one.

Cyrptocurrencies also ensure there are no forgeries. If a bill is printed with the hash on it, it can be verified easily. This is actually an excellent use of the cryptocurrency standards. Having the govt, as well as citizens and businesses, being able to track it publicly would be a benefit. Also, you're a moron.

One person's error is another person's data.
