While We Are Waiting..

I want to zoom out a little and take a look at the space from…space. Standing in the middle of it right now is a little bit of a wtf moment. Most people are either done with the gambling phase or they are waiting patiently with their for now almost worthless tokens. As we’ve been discussing before, the hype phase is over.

We will not see mass adoption until dapps create an account for you and all you have to do is MAX hold ONE passphrase or private key.

A lot of people waited for years as early investors in Ethereum. As they talked about scaling for years on end and nothing ever seemed to happen, a lot of people jumped over to EOS. EOS delivered, at least for a while – until we ran into CPU issues and scaling issues. Dan Larimer talked a...
