Alex Millar goes on to discuss about Canadian dollars and lack of transparency associated with the national currency. Even US dollar, euro, yen etc. lack integrity, just like the Canadian dollar. According to Alex Millar, bitcoin is the solution to ensure transparency of currency. Integrity of bitcoin in vouched by the members of public who are part of bitcoin network.
