Move over, Bitcoin. Now St. Louis has its own crypto-currency, STLcoin. Created by Rick Schriewer, EE’98, STLcoin launched on Jan. 14, 2014.

“I see virtual currency as the future, and I saw an opportunity to get involved and put St. Louis at the forefront of this revolution,” Schriewer said in an article on Techli.com.

Schriewer is working to get stores and others to take STLcoin. He’s had success getting STLcoin on several exchanges that allow trading in crypto-currencies, a kind of digital money.
