Kimball says governments should recognize potential of Bitcoin

a PSC In The News reference, 2013

"Ron Paul: Bitcoin could 'destroy the dollar'" - CNN Money. 12/04/2013.

Miles Kimball says that, instead of being combative, "governments should be creating their own version of Bitcoin. They should be ashamed they haven't."
