I use the term“Crypto” to describe the totality of what’s now possible via the “technologies” blockchain, cryptocurrency, smart contracts and decentralization.
On June 29th, 2017, I saw the “Crypto Light”, by which I mean, one instant I saw the world one way, and in the next instant, my whole view of the world changed. One moment I was trying to figure out if Crypto was a thing, and the next moment, I became certain that it was going to be the biggest thing to happen in the history of humanity.
When I saw the Light, I joined a tens of thousands of other people who have seen the Crypto Light. Many who saw it when it was far dimmer then when I saw it. I LOVE spending time with other Crypto Light seers and talking about the infinite number of ways that Crypto is going to make the world a more efficient and better place, particularly in Social Good.
And EVERY SINGLE DAY, for five months, as I learn new things about Crypto, many that blow my mind, I’m certain that Crypto’s going to be even bigger than I thought it was going to be the day before.
However, I’m aware that I can’t show people the Crypto Light. Everyone has to see the Light as they go along their own life path, as they look through their own unique prism . As I wrote in a recent post “…. how do you help someone appreciate that an algorithm is more trustworthy than their government?”.
The way to optimize the opportunity to see the Light, is to DO THE WORK. Read and learn. It’s not easy. It’s hard work. It’s the densest thing that I’ve ever learned about. But, to date, the time I’ve spent learning about Crypto has had the highest ROI of any time I’ve ever spent on anything in my entire life.
You may do the work, and do the work, and never know when you’re going to see the Light. It happens in a flash.
