The year is 2038, and many of us have aged a bit. Some of us dudes have accepted our fate as having lesser hair on our scalp. Perhaps a flying car would be a reality by then, and HODLers would be the lucky few who own them. That is because the cryptocurrencies of Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), XRP, Tron (TRX), etc., have blossomed to their full potential and become mainstream investment instruments.
What we are going through now – in 2018 – are growing pains that are sure to separate the so-called ‘weak-hands’ from the long-term HODLers who have seen the future like Doctor Strange in the Marvel Universe.
So let us travel forward 20 years in time and see what our favorite digital assets would be valued at as well as any technical advancements by then.
In 20 years, BTC would have probably experienced a few parabolic moves and peaked at all the predicted levels of $25,000, $50,000, $250,000, $1 Million, etc. These price movements would have even saved John McAfee from eating his own d*ck. By then, BTC would be the digital gold and all fiat would have become extinct and displaying in museums next to fuel guzzling Lambos.
More forks of Bitcoin would have emerged by then with each claiming to be the refined version of the original. But the original Bitcoin by Satoshi would be highly sought after by HODLers who believe its value will perhaps reach higher levels above the $1 Million predictions.
The probability of the Ethereum community agreeing to solve scalability issues in 20 years is very high. By then, the network will be processing transactions at speeds that are probably 100 times current levels. The ERC20 token protocol would probably be obsolete and replaced by some other protocol that has fewer vulnerabilities in the smart contracts.
The price of ETH would have crossed the levels predicted at $1,000, $2,000, $10,000 and more. ETH would once again be the best alternative coin to HODL and not Stellar (XLM) or Zilliqa (ZIL).
The remittance industry in 20 years will probably be at the fingertips of the Ripple company. The firm would have by then, apparently merged or acquired SWIFT and any other threat to their ‘global domination.’ XRP would have surpassed the eagerly awaited $10 and done more in gains to levels that have not even been predicted. The monopoly of Ripple software solutions would once again become a cause for concern but not to XRP HODLers who would be reaping the rewards of waiting.
Justin Sun and the Tron foundation would have managed to decentralize the web in 20 years. The digital asset of TRX would have managed to become the gold standard of rewarding musicians, actors and more. By then, the adult film industry would have catapulted TRX to levels that no one imagined due to PornHub further pushing TRX adoption on its site.
By this time, Litecoin (LTC) will probably have decided to no longer live in the shadows of Big Brother, BTC. Litecoin would have managed to become the preferred digital asset for sending funds through SMS and Telegram messaging through Lite.im.
Also with TokenPay, the Litecoin Foundation would become the Goldman Sachs of crypto banking through the simple fact that they were one of the first to issue crypto debit cards after acquiring a stake at WEB Bank.
In conclusion, and the basis of this futuristic post is to remind crypto-traders and enthusiasts that we are on the cusp of greatness with cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
With every new technology that is introduced into the mainstream, there is a reluctance to adopt it immediately for this would be disrupting the ‘Business as Usual’ of doing things. Humans are creatures of habit, and any disruption of that habit is usually met with fear or hostility as we see now.
But 20 years down the line, crypto traders will be flying around in their cars and being glad they kept HODLing.

Blockchain technology outshines Bitcoin and Gold during global pandemic
As the popularity of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin begins to level up with investments made in metals such as Gold, together they have both made significant advantages for investors who have taken a leap to invest in them.
However, thanks to the pandemic and the dynamic shift in investing and the economy, many investors have seen fluctuating losses and gains thanks to the uncertainty of the current business world.
Many investors that backed companies who have exposure to blockchain technology have seen an approximate amount of 54% return on investments over the past year. This is even after considering how hard the global tech market and companies have been hit since the beginning of the pandemic.
What is blockchain technology?
Blockchain technology was first introduced as a supportive technology for Bitcoin. A blockchain is a simple, unchangeable and un-hackable digital ledger that holds transactions in little blocks attached to a chain. The transaction is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of systems on the blockchain, making it available for everyone on the network to see.
Each block in the chain contains various transactions which are recorded on the participant ledger every time a transaction takes place. The database is decentralised and is managed by multiple participants known as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).
Although blockchain technology was birthed from Bitcoin and was widely adopted for the use of cryptocurrencies, the way it works and its security has made…
Bitcoin Surges After Tesla Bought $1.5 Billion Worth of BTC
The sudden rise of Bitcoin has been connected to the decision taken by the Tesla electric car company to buy $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin.

But for Tesla, the company decides to diversify its funds and increased its cash returns. However, Tesla also warned investors about the volatility of Bitcoin’s price in its SEC filing. According to the SEC…

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
