Bitcoin Q&A: Biggest threat to cryptocurrencies



What is the biggest threat to cryptocurrencies? The main thing we’re vulnerable to, is things deteriorating too fast in traditional economies. A financial crisis would dry up capital everywhere but would also push more people to exit the system. I would rather have a few more years of being thoroughly underestimated and ignored.

This is part of a talk which took place at the Advanced Digital Innovation Summit (ADIS) on September 12th 2017 in Vancouver, Canada: https://antonopoulos.com/event/adisummit-vancouver-canada/
