I thought this was a really great talk about how new technologies are often viewed by people and sometimes a little feared and misunderstood. Eventually, these same technologies end up changing the world we live in, in ways we never even imagined. I absolutely love the analogies he uses comparing cars and horses, and the way people viewed electricity in it’s early days. Bitcoin and the blockchain are probably one of these misunderstood technologies.
