First Minister Alex Salmond has said that excluding an independent Scotland from the sterling currency would leave a "massive hole in the UK balance of payments".
He told ITV News it would be in the interests of both governments to continue using the pound and that he expected Westminster to "live up to their side of the bargain".
There are serious doubts about if, how and when an independent Scotland will take its place in the EU.
Alex Salmond has launched his Government's blueprint for independence and told voters that Scotland's future was now in their hands.
Nobody I spoke to in Alloa told me the independence white paper had bowled them over or even changed their minds.
