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.

Bitcoin (BTC)

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.

Ethereum (ETH)

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).

XRP

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.

Tron (TRX)

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.

Litecoin (LTC)

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.

Conclusion

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.

We always hear how Bitcoin is great for the financial industry, how it can remove the middleman and help you save money while you spend money. How it can provide fast transactions at any time to any place, even when you wish to send money to someone on the other side of the world.

While all of that is true, it is important to remember that Bitcoin’s impact does not end there. The coin has already changed countless other industries, but one of the first ones that have accepted it with open arms — and therefore one that was changed the most — is the online gaming industry.

Bitcoin’s impact on online gaming

The first thing to note here is that digital currencies have found their use in online gaming thanks to microtransactions. However, it goes far beyond simply purchasing an in-game item from another player. Bitcoin’s biggest impact, without a doubt, concerns online gambling, sports betting, and similar activities.

Bitcoin brings security and anonymity

Bitcoin casino has become one of the new most popular places for an online gambler to visit, and for numerous reasons. Bitcoin brought increased security — to the financial industry, as well as online games. This is important because security is crucial for anyone who enjoys online gambling. It…

The Crucial Role of Cryptocurrencies & Blockchain in Modernising The Telco Industry

Blockchain has caused quite a stir in recent years. In fact, there’s a school of thought that firmly believes the digital ledger technology will prove to be the 21st Century’s biggest innovation

There are a great many industries braced for the disruptive force of blockchain, and the sweeping benefits it can bring to telecommunications can’t be underestimated. 

A blockchain is a decentralised, distributed, public digital ledger that’s fundamentally used to record transactions online. Every transaction that takes place is recorded across an extensive array of computers in a way that ensures that any individual record within the chain can’t be tampered with or retroactively modified. 

Because of the virtually impregnable security associated with blockchain and the efficiency that comes with a fully decentralised ledger, there’s plenty of potential for the technology within the telco industry in particular – especially given the financial flexibility that comes with cryptocurrency transactions beyond borders. 

Let’s take a deeper look at the important role that both blockchain and its associated cryptocurrencies can play in modernising and securing the telco industry:

Unprecedented security

The arrival of blockchain is causing a stir at Deloitte. The professional services giant has contributed tens of thousands of words on blockchain within its ‘insights’ network, and there are…
