Bitcoin on Path to Be Better Store of Value Than Gold, Lou Kerner Says

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney experimented with a new form of outreach as he spent more than a hour answering questions on the Internet on Wednesday.

In response to some 30 questions from members of the public, he wrote that the bank is ready for Brexit, downbeat on Bitcoin and a defender of cash. The 53-year-old Canadian posted more than 10,000 words in his answers, making it about twice as long as the annual Mansion House speech he delivered to the grandees of London’s financial district last year.
