The Future Of Currency: Unification or Diversification? (Debate)

Co-Founder of mobile money app Settle, Steffan Aquarone, is going to talk to us about the future of currency: Is unification the way to go or are we going to see diversification into hundreds or thousands of micro-currencies? How will this affect the economy? Will it cause inflation? And will it lead to Governments losing control?

Come and join in the debate to help decide which way it should go.
