Nevertheless, Bitcoin may still be the currency of the future. Murray State's Arthur J. Bauernfeind College of Business faculty member Sunayan Acharya joins Kate Lochte on Sounds Good to explain the headlines and what the future may have in store for the digital currency.

We hear the story with Kate Lochte, through the voices of a state employee of that time and an organizer of the event - who is still working for human rights.
