Al Gore on Bitcoin

Albert Arnold "Al" Gore, Jr. is an American politician, advocate and philanthropist. Generally he has a good understanding of technology and future trends. Here are some things he said about Bitcoin:

"Regulation of money supply needs to be depoliticized... especially as it applies to virtual currencies."

"I think the fact that within the Bitcoin universe an algorithm replaces the functions of [the government] … is actually pretty cool."
Via: Adam Smith Institute.

"This [Bitcoin] is a good development for the poor of the world. Those who do not have access to banking services, who do not have access to financial services of various kinds, are now gaining access through mobile payments. We are obviously in a period of disruptive innovation, and it is early in this revolutionary period, so we are kind of in the let a thousand flowes bloom period."
At the IP2013 conference.

"I'm a big fan of BitCoin."
