Can you feel it? Are you participating in the massive transfer of wealth going on right now? I'm surprised by it every day, even though I've been talking about it since the beginning of 2013.
Centralized currencies controlled by violent, immoral authoritarians can't survive against open-source, decentralized, cryptographically-secure ledgers with provable and auditable characteristics. Programmable money leads to distributed, autonomous corporations where every participant is a customer, employee, and owner. The potential for human well-being exponentially increases. Automation, general artificial intelligence, gene editing, and so much more change how we value "work."
Cryptocurrency changes how we value "stores of value."
Blockchains and directed acyclic graph technology bring about non-violent, global consensus. Cooperation through networks instead of powerfully-controlled hierarchies give everyone equal access to participate, contribute, and prosper.
Money flows from the banksters, international crooks, and violent thieves to the technologists, early-adopters, and visionaries who imagine a better world and put in the work to create it.
The powerful, peaceful revolution has begun.
I hope you join us.

Education often requires direct participation and emotional engagement. Until you know what it feels like to get margin called or waste 100 bitcoin on a bitcoin miner you melt or get scammed out of your air-dropped Ripple or any number of other silly (and amazing) things I've been able to do in this space, you may not fully understand. My encouragement to you is to get out there and try some things. Start with small risks, learn, and do some research.
Tell us about your journey. Your unique story will help educate us all and give us new paths for exploration.
