A careful evaluation of historical events reveals that the concept of currency has been a point of contention among nations, persistently, over the ages. With the insurgence of a digital era taking over the world of finance at large, a change in terms of how money is transacted and operated in the global economy, is inevitable, an idea that Eshwar Prasad elaborates in this article in MIT Technology Review.
