As we progress forward, it truly looks like we are beginning a new era of currency exchange on a worldwide scale. The Bitcoin Era, as some are calling it, seems to be coming at us at warp speed. Where five years ago, bitcoin wasn’t dinner table conversation, it is now available at gas station ATMs.
Coinbase recently announced a big step forward for their company. In the US, they have launched a coinbase card to link with accounts. This enables rapid spending of crypto up to a huge base of users. Companies like Paypal are hopping onto the crypto train too, opening up the conversation about how they will use cryptopcurrencies going forward.
While some people might not call it quite yet, I think these are signs that we have passed a tipping point. Cryptopcurrency is going to become a normalized part of our society and will become a large part of how people buy and sell for the forseeable future.
What does this mean for this new era? Mankind has relied on physical currency for as long as we can remember, and this territory is becoming populated by far more people than it once was. With so many people investing in bitcoin, what will the future look like?
The more accessible bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies become to the general populous, the more we are going to be seeing a fully equipped cryptocurrency era, and it seems like bitcoin will be leading the charge. It’s an exciting time of change that I think I can say we are all looking forward to experiencing. The potential for growth is huge, and is something longtime bitcoin enthusiasts have been waiting for for a long time now. Who knows, it might not be long before your local store prefers bitcoin over physical dollars!
