Bitcoin is all the rage right now, generating countless headlines day after day, and is there any question as to why? This cutting-edge technology is changing not just the way that people do business but the way that people view the entire economy. Gone are the days that centralized institutions are considered inseparable from the concept of money. It is very possible that in the future these centralized institutions will come to be thought of as obsolete, just a remnant of our economic past, much like the gold standard is today.
Exciting as this Bitcoin-led charge into the future is, there are real world implications for Bitcoin today too. ATMs for Bitcoin have popped up in cities around the world, and the first purchase ever made with Bitcoin was for a pizza. Although many people continue to view Bitcoin as solely an investment vehicle, it can be so much more than that. Think about it: this is a payment method that is much, much faster than any bank transfer or wire service you will find. On average, Bitcoin transactions complete magnitudes faster than similar bank transactions would. This is a payment method with more convenience than consumers have ever seen before!
Sooner rather than later, people will begin to view Bitcoin as the convenient, safe payment method that it is. Once greater numbers of people understand how Bitcoin works, it is only natural that they will use Bitcoin the way that it was intended to be used, as a currency like any other – only improved. In a world where there are no physical objects tied to the currencies that we use and exchange, we can drastically enhance the security of our economy and thus of our livelihoods. This is what a world in which Bitcoin is the dominant currency will look like: a more secure world, a safer world, a world in which speedy transacting is the rule and not the exception.
It starts now. The future, that is. We are proud to act as pioneers in this movement forward. Why not? We all see the writing on the wall, and we know this change is coming anyway. Why stand by idly and watch it happen. We want to be a part of it all!
