Google will launch its own currency (or buy one like Ripple) and start transacting in a global black box. Don’t be surprised if Google “buys a country” essentially, and places their global HQ in a jurisdiction that allows them to transact in Google Coins. I could give you the inside information about Google currency discussions, but that would be too gratuitous. They’ll share them when they’re ready.
Every Google product you buy will come with Google Coins – from phones to laptops to Gmail accounts. Google will take cover by giving 1% of all coins issued to the developing world via Google.org. Of course, those donations will be funneled to their own projects like Google Loon – keeping that money in the Google ecosystem for all time. – Jason Calacanis
