Ecuador follows Bitcoin ban with digi-currency proposal

Old Handle

Re: Why?

It would be different because it'd be the first altcoin to be legal tender. Even outside Ecuador, that could be significant. It would be a foreign currency after all, rather than just some weird digital asset your government hasn't figured out how to handle yet. I can't say who specifically would want that or exactly in what situation, but I do think it would be enough to distinguish it from the others.
