Global Travelers Use Bitcoin for Payments

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.

He sees banks’ efforts to reduce payment card fraud and meet anti-money laundering laws as further complicating payment issues for regular people.
