In a world headed more towards digital currencies, we must secure and preserve the essential properties of traditional money. No one wants the public to be able to look into their monetary transactions, whether they are governments, companies or private people.

Last, but not least, if a future digital asset is slow in terms of transaction speed, it is not a future asset.
