My attention was drawn to ‘The Inner Game’ … and held by your great points. Thank you Alex Hardy, for an excellent article, well-worth my attention.
I have been watching the crypto space with interest since the New Scientist first featured a brief mention about Satoshi Nakamoto’s original paper on the block chain concept and Bitcoin, in about 2010. It was kind of like visiting China in 2001 and wanting to invest … there really wasn’t a practical access point at that time for muggles to participate.
And then I heard about CryptoKitties this Christmas, and finally decided to plunge into actually engaging with CryptoWorld — the excuse was to teach my digital native sons about cryptocurrencies, but it’s really for me to learn. For them, it’s a no-brainer :-)
A week ago I explained blockchain, Bitcoin, ethereum and CryptoKitties to a small home-school audience. I was proud to be able to translate all those foggy ideas into something that non-techies could get (even if they didn’t quite believe it), and even prouder that my 9 year-old son immediately grasped the strategic essentials.
We’re still stuck in some invisible preconceptions around money and what cryptocurrencies can actually do — the real applications haven’t yet emerged, just as we couldn’t imagine YouTube in a dialup world.
I’m waiting for the next generation of distributed consensus technology— maybe Hashgraph? — to offer the resource-light/high bandwidth needed for global adoption, and the new generation of digital native coders to come up with the total disruption of our resource allocation system… which is all that money is, really. I hope to inspire them with a few ideas for peaceful planetary hyperabundance.
