What to expect in the coming year. Bitcoin Tech Talk #217
2020 is coming to a close, leaving behind its wake economic, cultural and political devastation. Governments are more authoritarian than ever, the hopes and dreams of millions of small business owners and non-essential workers are up in smoke and the US political system is in the biggest crisis since Watergate. What’s even more disappointing is just how compliant people have been through the whole thing, mostly taking the tyranny without so much as a whimper.
Yet despite all these things I am profoundly optimistic about the world and where it’s going. It’s certainly not because I believe in our political, educational or medical leaders. They are, if anything, the source of the misery we experience. The reason for my hope is Bitcoin.
