Do you ever feel like you missed out on Bitcoin or Ethereum?
Sure there were gains to be made as an early adopter. But, what if I told you that the timing has never been better? Why only take my word for it?
In this latest walk n’ talk with my wolfpack, I lay out the core context for why the crypto revolution is only just beginning.
“All cryptos have been experiments on the open market beginning with Satoshi Nakamoto,” I explain. Since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009, the realm of developers, users, governments, and institutions alike have been pioneering the real-world application of blockchain tech.
Unlike the Monero (XMR) community that continues to set the standard for excellence through honesty, humility, and free, open-source collaboration, many projects have perpetuated an illusion of what their project is truly offering.
The fact is, any transparent ledger like Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Cardano (ADA) or Tezos (XTZ) is the furthest thing from being censorship resistant. And this is okay. But, it is up to you, the self-responsible adopter, to discern what you are really supporting regardless of the smoke and mirrors of ‘decentralization’ marketing hype.
“Beyond what you are investing in, it is critical to know why you are investing in it,” I caution. How do you intend to use that technology to improve your personal and work life?
While my team and I strongly agree that sound digital money is the most important application to tackle first, I personally see the DEMAND for use cases beyond this. I see potential for the private protocols of Lunarpunk AND the transparent protocols of Solarpunk.
If this terminology is new to you, then I encourage you to make time for today’s walk n’ talk and watch the short film at the end. This is the cutting edge perspective of blockchain.

The reality of the success of crypto is dependent on the ability of any project to fulfill either the private and public needs of the user. “I have a public life and I have a private life,” I motion.
This is up to the user to decide. And while many investors in the space tend to be married to one perspective, the tools are available to us NOW to fulfill both of these needs.
I honestly have a renewed sense of optimism and excitement for the blockchain industry. It feels like 2009 all over again. But, only because I choose to see into the future and take responsibility for all of my needs.
In addition to carefully choosing which projects I support and how I intend to use them, one of the most basic and often overlooked responsibilities is managing your private wallet keys. In this video, I explain, “With crypto, YOU are the custodian and YOU are the bank!” This requires a high degree of responsibility.
Not only is this an incredible time to be looking at crypto, the team and I at TCV are hosting an exclusive TCV Summit: Hardware Basics Edition virtual event on Friday, September 23rd. Here we will cover the best practices of operational security so that you will be positioned to thrive beyond the cusp of this crypto revolution.
