According to CNBC today, Gavin Brown, co-founder of encryption chain company Blockchain Capital, recently stated that "in the era when companies such as McDonald's have higher credit ratings than countries such as Ireland, multinational companies issue their own (encrypted) currency and require customers to purchase these currencies. The behavior is not that weird. If they trust the brands and products of these companies, they will also believe in the currency of the company. We will really see the democratization of the currency. Of course, when too many companies start issuing their own currency, There may also be some confusion, like a group or alliance around the mainstream currency."
