Spring has brought green everywhere. Just pick a digital currency and I’ll tell you it is up 10%, 30%, 60% and some even more. You have to scroll down quite a bit to find any red, as a sea of green descends everywhere with the market cap now nearing one hundred billion dollars.
We might be experiencing the beginning of one of the greatest boom (although it could be the end of the boom – who knows these things) as ethereum now inspires a generation to dream once more, not how to make your mother click some ad, but how to disrupt industries from music to gaming, supply chains to high end dresses, cars, energy, oil, social networking, to banking.
Web3.0 may be coming. Soon, all your websites might be run on blockchains – not literally, but with the help of things like MetaMask, an eth plugging that gives your website blockchain capabilities, coders could do cool things like one click payments or no sign up required blackjack or interesting insurance projects like FlightDelay.
That means us journalists might start getting paid well again, as well as artists in music and movies, as everything just moves onto the blockchain, disrupting middle men like the internet did back then, back in the 90s.
You remember it right? It was a time of great peace when we didn’t have any state enemy. Everyone was full of optimism and confidence. We were going to conquer the world. Money was flowing everywhere, people showering with champagne.
That great optimism led to the dotcom boom, which eventually ended of course, but it lasted around a decade before it did so. How long this boom will last no one can say. It may be just the beginning, it may be the end, but for now the music plays and everyone is dancing, because the greatest party on earth has begun.
