At some point, you may be asked to have an opinion on Bitcoin. If this happens, this – from Paul Krugman – may help?
I’ve been in numerous meetings with enthusiasts for cryptocurrency and/or blockchain, the concept that underlies it. In such meetings I and others always ask, as politely as we can: “What problem does this technology solve? What does it do that other, much cheaper and easier-to-use technologies can’t do just as well or better?” I still haven’t heard a clear answer.
(All of this assuming that you never listened to Jamie Bartlett’s excellent ‘The Missing Cyptoqueen‘)
