Understanding Blockchain

What are the smartest people I know bullish on?

There’s one answer I see over and over again.

And that’s blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

People like Balaji and Naval speak of blockchain as a paradigm shifting technology that will radically change society. Especially with the recent surge in pricing for bitcoin and the emergence of NFTs, blockchain technologies seem to be breaking into the mainstream, yet it’s still in it’s infancy.

Think of it like getting into the internet in the 1990s or mobile in the early 2000s. This looks like the first chance for me to get in early on a new technological wave. And I don’t want to miss the boat because of my ignorance.

The first step is educating myself, then talking with others in the space.

Ultimately, I want to see what they see.
