Crypto AM shines its Spotlight on CoinGeek Live - CityAM ...

Is it too late?

I've heard a lot of people say they "missed the opportunity" with blockchain cryptocurrency and tokens like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Let's get this straight.
It's not too late.
Now this thing could fail or it could work...that's it. But make no mistake; IF it does work there is no scenario where Bitcoin is at $3000 ...either Bitcoin fails and goes to single digit dollars ... OR it works and IF it does work then we are looking at not $3000 or $5000 but $100,000 or $500,000 per Bitcoin or as PayPal board member & Xapo CEO Wences Casaras said: $1,000,000 per Bitcoin.
It is an experiment. It is extraordinary risky and you could lose all your money if you invest in it. You do also have the potential for upside returns.
Personally I think that the global markets are and will continue to reward digital sound money that has no leader and are and will continue to reject the phony corporatist fiat which has caused so much harm on our earth. Either because they are pragmatists, economists, idealists, dreamers or opportunists ... I personally believe that more and more people will see the beauty of code bound by laws of math as a preferred and secure replacement for authority. For whatever reason they will shift.
They will shift to a better currency for the same reason people shifted from stones to shells as currency and from shells to coins to bills... because it's a better form of money. What makes money better? Portability, scarcity, fungibility, durability, divisibility...these are the properties which make Bitcoin a better form of money as all others before it. These are also the properties which make the technology of blockchain significant and it's ability to securely transmit things of value. Should Ethereum, Eth Classic or Bitcoin become a significant backbone chain for transmission of value (such as what we call securities today) then this will disrupt and improve all commerce on earth. My new company, Chainstone Labs is working with my old company, Atlantic Financial to use this platform to decentralize global investment management and place control into the hands of the individual investor. This is one of a thousand projects that wants to...and really may have a clear shot...at changing the world. Is it a bubble? Sure. Will 90% or so of these projects fail? Yep. Just like the internet. Just. Like. The. Internet. Although, as Bradley Rotter said when I met him in 2013: "This time we will grow faster than the internet because we have something he internet didn't have... we have the internet!"
This isn't some "kinda cool thing" or neat twist on old tech like a backyard toy drone. This is serious. Those of us who believe in this believe that this is an innovation of an importance greater than that of the Internet itself. We believe this is on the level of the printing press: a technology that will forever shift the future of humanity, our power structures and our global quality of life.
The ability to use mathematics, decentralized computer networks and code to make central power structures obsolete is no small thing. What does it mean? Well, if it works it means we burn the entire global system to the ground by building something better that it can peacefully and quickly upgrade to. You are watching the initial boot up of that upgrade.
This will be a revolution. You may not be a coder or an economic geek. You may not know or care who Mises and Rothbard are. You may not know what fractional reserve banking means or that the Federal Reserve is a private corporation ...but you are nevertheless a slave of these things. We all are. But distributed knowledge has woken up more people to these issues and blockchain technology will set us free. These old systems ...just as the Kings and Churches of the Dark Ages, will fall. The fact that we have now reached $100 billion in crypto / $40 billion in Bitcoin market cap is not that meaningful...other than as a sign that those who predicted this so far have been right.
In other words, this could fail but if this is real it's going to the moon ...and it's looking more real by the day.
