Understanding the Size of the Cryptocurrency Movement



Each and every day I study more and more about cryptocurrency and Bitcoin. The more I study, the bigger the entire picture gets. I cannot even wrap my mind around it just yet. And things have not even come to a head.

Right now, the majority of people in the world have no earthly idea of how big this paradigm shift is shaping up to be. We still here talk of the cryptocurrency market being a "bubble", or some passing phase that will eventually crumble once governments and bankers put an end to it. The reason so many people remain clueless is the fact that the crypto market has not hit critical mass.

Conventional wisdom says, "the government will shut it down because they'll never allow something to take away their power". But the truth of the matter is, it's already out of their hands. There is nothing that will stop the masses of people in the world from doing what is natural, which is participating in trade.

When people say that Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies won't last, or that the big bubble will burst, they speak out of ignorance. It would be as ridiculous as saying that people trading products and services will "burst" one day. That will never happen.

As long as there are human beings who live in this world, there will always be trade. And Bitcoin has revolutionized the ability for humans to do what comes naturally... trade with each other, without the interference of governments and banks.

The benefits of how cryptocurrencies work, along with the Blockchain, far outweigh the antiquated system of fiat currencies that are in use today. Comparing a fiat currency like the US dollar to Bitcoin would be like comparing a typewriter to a cutting edge personal computer system connected to the World Wide Web. You just can't draw a comparison.

Another example would be comparing the benefits to going back to horse-drawn carriages and mules and abandoning motor vehicles, airplanes, and high speed trains, because we have more ability to control horses and mules. That wouldn't make much sense.

Neither does the thinking that fiat currency will prevail and cryptocurrencies will disappear over time.

This is not a fad, or a passing phase. It's a monumental paradigm shift in the way the citizens of Earth will interact with each other. And that explanation does not even come close to doing it justice. I'm not educated on this topic enough to even begin to be able to paint a proper picture.

I'll be explaining a lot of the basics of cryptocurrency, the Blockchain, and the advantages of the shift to this futuristic platform for monetary exchange over the coming months. If you have questions, please post them in the comments below, and I might use your questions for a future post topic.
