Most people do not appreciate the computer science breakthrough that Bitcoin was.
Before Bitcoin, we did not think decentralized digital scarcity was possible. Everything that has come before, and pretty much everything that has come since was either physical, centralized or not scarce.
Bitcoin brought all three together and even exceeded the scarcity of what came before. It was, to be sure, not just a computer science breakthrough, but a monetary breakthrough.
Yet, even after 15 years, most people don't get the significance of this new thing that was created. But as Bitcoin enters adulthood, it'll get much more respect, because it'll have proven its properties over time.
And it's that true adoption, by people that understand its use as unconfiscatable savings that will transform not just the holders, but civilization itself. Brace yourselves, because the real show is about to begin.
