You’re right that Bitcoin is not a panacea for everything, it’s something I write about often and has a whole chapter in my last book ‘How to explain Bitcoin to your mum.’ However, there’s no doubt that the next generation are used to using digital currency already and that leap, for them, will not be anything but natural.

And yes, there’s almost 5000 cryptos now, but most of us in the business consider that at least 4900 of them (if we’re generous) are utterly worthless in real terms! It’s such an early and small industry, it’ll take quite a bit of time to sort this mess out!

Thanks for reading and commenting, much appreciated, all the best
