This is a great article and well worth the five minute read. This article draws an excellent comparison between email and Bitcoin. The early years of email adoption were difficult due to inferior technology and a lack of understanding. Slowly but surely, mainstream adoption took place and now we all consider email to be a necessary part of our daily lives. The author, Miguel Cuneta, and I share the belief that Bitcoin finds itself in a similar situation.
If you had the opportunity in the 1980’s to invest in email technology, would you have had the foresight to see what it would eventually become? Or would you have stood there in your track suit listening to your Walkman and told me that sending a letter is good enough? It is time to ditch the hair spray and hammer pants; don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
