I remember that services like M-Pesa were already briefly on our radar. Now, Google has also picked it up in Kenya: http://qz.com/79651
Those Social/Mobile Payment services are usually not currencies in their own right, hence a local currency of Kenya, India or other countries where such services have been launched would be used, not replaced by it, unlike Bitcoin, Brixton Pound or similar initiatives.
