Relevant: The Royal Canadian Mint recently invented MintChip, a fully digital crypto-currency where private keys are stored in integrated circuit chips in micro sd cards (for smartphones/tablets) and USB dongles (for computers).

They say it is able to be exchanged online AND offline fully anonymously. The details on that are yet to be released.

This makes Canada the first country in the world to explore a fully electronic currency.
