Cryptocurrency enthusiasts are advocating a future in which everything will be tokenized: real estate, IoT, supply chain, energy, healthcare. These are situations that require trust and accountability but where it does not inherently exist. In other words, everyone needs to trust each other but nobody does.
Bitcoin didn’t come into my vocabulary until about 2013. Back then, I could only envision it as a currency for the dark web, especially when Bitcoin companies were sponsoring hackathons and the resulting project demonstrations looked like anonymous drug transactions.
