Facebook, VISA, Uber, and A16Z (amongst others) have officially announced their cryptocurrency:
Reinvent money. Transform the global economy. So people everywhere can live better lives.
Color me skeptical. Not of the value of cryptocurrencies writ large, but in the actors and entities behind this particular coin. One thing I believe to be true, though: ten years from now our idea of (and interaction with) money will be dramatically different than it is today.
