Global Travelers Find new Payment System Solution in Bitcoin

Bitcoin’s decentralized platform of distributed trust continues to gain the attention of astute observers of centralized payment systems.

One benefit bitcoin provides in today’s global economy is being a global currency.

Bret Swanson, writing in yesterday’s Chicago Tribune, claims bitcoin can alleviate the problems international travelers increasingly encounter when making payments in foreign countries.
