One Day…Buyers & Sellers Will Use Digital Currency

One Day…Buyers & Sellers Will Use Digital Currency
Culture

Stan Stalnaker of Hub Culture dreams of a day when we will revert to a universal and stable digital currency.

PSFK asked creative experts working at the forefront of cultural change what they look forward to as ‘one day’ being the reality that we live in. As part of a series on forecasts, we asked Stan Stalnaker, Founding Director of the social network Hub Culture and digital currency Ven:

One Day buyers and sellers will trade with an alternative digital currency based on a basket that is more stable than the local currency. This means that you can do a forward contract for your grain, or your wheat, or your oil— or whatever—at a much more certain rate than you can right now.
