Hour 1: Tech Roundtable

The Decline of Money

Decade by decade, America has been inching closer to a fully cashless society.
This week our nation took a giant leap closer to that goal with the May 14th announcement by the tax collector of Seminole County, Florida, that as of this summer Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash payments will be accepted by the county to pay taxes and state licensing fees.  Seminole County is an area with a population of approximately one-half million people.The county’s decision to go crypto potentially translates to hundreds of thousands of new cryptocurrency users.
Good idea or bad?
