...feel compelled to argue as the devils' advocate here.
As it is intended to be WORLD Wide Web it may be in best interests to stick
most widely accepted AND reasonably stable currencies to ever change hands
on this planet,
that being USD. USD IS local currency in many more countries than the US.
Arguably 95%+ of all
ecommerce transactions are in USD. It makes things easy. Banks here in the
US and banks in
Europe I know of tend to charge prohibitive exchange fees for small currency
are no countries I know of where USD cannot be spent rather easily. Should
we ever have a world
dollar it best be green.
For the very small number of people who require alternate currencies working
default should not be that much of a pain.
