There is no doubt that, compared to 10 years ago; cryptocurrency is less of a novel idea - and more of a functional way of getting financial independence.
This is not a generalized view of independence however, and in its own special way, cryptocurrency provides people with opportunities that they may never have the opportunity to experience.
-movement of money country to country without fear of loss
-security in stable-coins that provide financial defense against market fluctuations by staying near or close to a valued amount or currency.
-healthcare access in areas where money is hard to get
-data security, and message signing transactions, sharing information
-payroll, insurance, gambling, food, weapons, clothes, etc. etc.
Does this affect us?
-Yes- and -no-
It really depends on your association with cryptocurrency
someone who never tries bitcoin- just thinks it a coin they can put inside their pocket.
whereas;someone who has tried bitcoin- understands private and public keys.
in some special situations, indirectly, cryptocurrency can have an impact regardless of status in country.
think - banks or realtors, etc.
I think cryptocurrency has the ability to become something that produces results - a blockchain technology that is adapted and evolves from current trends, will
help us better understand and use specific technologies related to cryptocurrency such as - asic, gpu, cpu, mobile, IOT, stake, and crypto-lending -
this in turn will continue to create opportunities for improvement in technology in general
we may even discover 1000% more energy efficient ways to produce blockchains
security wise, I feel that cryptocurrency in general will become more secvre but, easier to access
personification of cryptocurrency (designer cryptocurrency) will become a thing, otherwise items will start to hold different digital values in crypto for trade items.
security made from blockchain tech, will eventually; end up providing militaristic advantage by secvre money transfer and message signing and various other identification techniques
Timestamps will be everywhere in the form of blockchain.
city's/towns will be able to utilize this data without citizen appropriation such as name, number, address, P-I-N
police fingerprinting database becomes mineable, and secvreable by average citizens concerned about justice safety and data integrity
in music someone has already used crypto to create interest in artists-
and there are genres of music that use computer "sounds"
in art, bitcoin hold some weight and over 5 years - has produced unique images and videos and content for the internet in almost all aspects
this is just speculation from a old-nerd
but the future is grand and holds several unique opportunities
