In the April issue of Delta’s SKY Magazine, Branson spoke about a number of topics, of which include (yes, you guessed it) bitcoin. “It was a genius who set [Bitcoin] up,” he told the magazine. But despite the genius behind bitcoin, Branson says there’s a number of flaws with it — chiefly, its transparency. Specifically, the fact that most people don’t know who Satoshi Nakamoto — the creator — is. “It may not be the perfect global currency of the future yet, but it’s the pioneer of a global currency.”
Mr. Branson instead feels that a successful means of digital payments could come from someone well known like Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey.
