Paul Kemp-Robertson: Bitcoin. Sweat. Tide. Meet the future of branded currency.
10:51 · Filmed June 2013 at TEDGlobal 2013 · Subtitles available in 28 languages

Currency — the bills and coins you carry in your wallet and in your bank account — is founded on marketing, on the belief that banks and governments are trustworthy. Now, Paul Kemp-Robertson walks us through a new generation of currency, supported by that same marketing … but on behalf of a private brand. From Nike Sweat Points to bottles of Tide (which are finding an unexpected use in illegal markets), meet the non-bank future of currencies.
