Cryptocurrency isn’t just the future because that is what a committed band of dreamers would have you believe. It is the future because it is a new operating system for a decentralized world.
It is the future because it takes back control of the things we are most dependent on for us to subsist. It is the future because it is already here making a difference in how we act. Bitcoin has enabled a whole generation of Venezuelans to have an alternative to crippling inflation left unchecked by corruption.
- No longer do we have to trust a government to reign over us and carelessly prescribe dangerous monetary policy which we must accept.
- No longer must we accept situations of austerity forced upon us due to government intervention in a financial collapse where there was no punishment for any of the individuals who caused it.
- No longer is our future depends on the whims of governments.
You can make any argument you like about Cryptocurrency being overvalued, about it being manipulated, about it not being a viable medium for high-frequency transactions to occur.
That’s fine but what price do you place on control?
