How Can We Know Cryptocurrency Is Here To Stay?

Technology is a one-way street. This notion wasn’t obvious at me when I first heard it from Tom Bilyeu. But the thought of it leaped at me when I was in the shower. Perhaps I was experiencing a deep relaxation wave in my Alpha state. It is safe to assume that we’ll never go back to the time when we use horses as our mode of transport. We’ll never use floppy disks again, and we certainly wouldn’t be using pagers and rotary telephones. The days of a phonebook is, ironically, numbered.

Now, we have Google, iPhones and seemingly limitless amount of cloud storage. We have these technological tools at our fingertips that we couldn’t even fathom the idea of it 2–3 decades ago.

I believe the answer lies in the progression of technology constantly attempting to solve the bigger problems in society. Technology is a big part of solving inequality, inopportunity, stagnation, debt and falling living standards.

But, we need to bear in mind that every new technology is only as good as its ecosystem.

For the longest time ever, there was a common belief that the human body was simply not capable of completing one-mile (1.6 km) under 4 minutes. We would die. But, Sir Roger Bannister made the impossible possible.

If the society as a whole fails to agree on this sentiment, the foundation of cryptocurrency would collapse.

There is a fine line between fishing and doing nothing. We would like to think that we’re fishing, but the truth is we don’t have the line.
