Animal activist, Vegans, & Vegetarians time to switch to Bitcoin
When it comes to world events Bitcoin has been showing up again and again with both positive and negative news. I think some more good news is rolling in and it involves the people who are fighting to protect animals both big and small. Some of us done realize that fiat currency is not made of paper. The united states dollar is made from cotton which is why its so hard to duplicate. The Canadian dollar is made from plastic and other similar materials. England has a new 5 pound note that they are putting into circulation and some people are not happy but why?
The new notes have been released with the intention of cutting down the amount resources it takes to make these bills. They are made out of polymer not paper which is harder to counterfeit. They are suppose to last 2.5 times longer which means they can print less cutting down the carbon footprint overall. The problem with these notes is that they are dipped in animal fat. Some tallow was found in one of the main ingredients to make these notes, tallow is a type of animal fat. Needless to say this has offended many people and a petition has been started and over 100,000 people have already signed the documents to have the banks remove this ingredient from the bills that are being made.
I am pretty sure its to late to change the bill now. What do you guys think? If this was your currency would you still use it? ?
