No one can predict the future with much accuracy, but the crypto community is very busy inventing it.
Over the next decade I believe we’ll see a scalable and private blockchain reach about one billion users by the end of the decade, up from about 50 million at the start of the decade. I think adoption will follow a barbell distribution, driven both by the power users of the developed world (investors, engineers, crypto-first startups) and by the people in emerging markets where financial systems are most broken. By the end of the decade, I anticipate that most tech startups will have a crypto component, just like most tech startups use the internet and machine learning today. And I see governments and institutions moving into the cryptocurrency space in a big way as well, even more than they already have.
