DC Partner Carol Van Cleef described the digital currency bitcoin as “a movement towards frictionless payments” in a Credit Union Times article published July 16, 2013. The currency, a cash equivalent, has gained more traction of late. “We already are seeing more acceptance of bitcoin in mainstream commerce,” said Ms. Van Cleef in the piece. Still, uncertainty around e-currency will likely continue to play a role in its popularity. “People are having trouble getting their heads around bitcoin,” she admitted.
