Will Bitcoin Be Used By The Entire World – Bitcoin Magazine

This is an opinion editorial by Nesrine Aissani, co-founder of the Zonebitcoin blog.

I was born in the 80s in an African country that had a calling “non-convertible” currency. I think it forever marked my way of thinking about “currency” and I felt that it was an injustice. This also became more and more evident when I discovered Bitcoin and when I used it as a medium of exchange.

Here, I will try to explain what I mean.

A non-convertible currency is one that cannot be exchanged for that currency in the international currency market. Outside the country, this currency has no value; may also be referred to as locked money. For example, the Indian rupee is a semi-non-convertible currency outside of India, while dollars can be exchanged in every country in the world.
