About Bitcoin on Mars

What will future Martians use as a currency when commerce on Mars and throughout the solar system becomes a reality? It’s unlikely that they will use U.S. dollars, Japanese Yen, or (heavens forbid!) Venezuelan bolívars. However, from a technical standpoint, a future form of cryptocurrency may be usable. They might use Marscoin, a cryptocurrency that was created specifically for use on Mars. They might use Solarcoin as part of interstellar trade. Along with the rest of the Bitcoin in Space Group, Bitcoin on Mars is meant to promote the use of cryptocurrency in outer space and encourage the cryptocurrency community to support efforts to spread cryptocurrency and blockchain throughout the solar system.
