There is a lot of talk about about the cryptocurrency future of Bitcoin, or this altcoin or that one – fact is, nobody knows what the future holds for the crypto-space. But there are some who seem to have a better idea of what the future could hold than others. It has been a personal quest of mine to find those individuals. While I have found several good possibilities, at one time or another, each have fallen from grace in my eyes for one reason or another – either a purely personal reason, or by completely missing the mark once too often. Whatever. There are two that I follow religiously.
One of those is Andreas Antonopoulos. You might say I am addicted to Andreas, or at least to his easy, knowledgeable manner and firm grasp of the crypto space. What I like most about him is that he listens to people listening to him, and gives a concise, direct answers in terms anyone can understand when asked a question. While he does not profess to have all the answers, he certainly has more answers than I have – thus, his opinion and insights are of extreme value to me. I often research things he says, and have yet to find any discrepancies. The other thing I like is that he doesn’t try to “sell” me anything. All he does is educate on the subject of Bitcoin.
Okay, so all that said – the purpose of this post is to share a three-year old video I found this week. I should say that it is so pertinent to what is happening now, that I had no idea it was 3 years old! He talks about the “future of cryptocurrency” and I think those who haven’t quite come to a full understanding of Bitcoin and altcoins might find this enlightening.
To highlight some of Andreas’ insights shared three years ago, I’ve researched what he believed would occur to compare it with what has actually occurred. I’ve transcribed the video for the purpose of sharing some of those findings. The video quality isn’t the greatest, but this isn’t a visual as much as an audio experience, so the video producer in me has looked the other way on quality, and hopefully you will too. I hope you find his insights to be as fascinating as I did…enjoy 🙂
