I don’t like the term cryptocurrency. I think it limits discussion and ignores the wider use-cases available. Instead, I prefer the term cryptoasset (crypto asset).
Understand that currency and monetary implementation is often the first and easiest use-case.
Understand that current market cap and awareness revolves around currency.
But, in my mind, there’s much wider usage outside of “currencies.” I think we have a greater likelihood to impact and improve a much larger pool with “assets.”
It’s like building a sub-division & we’ve just begun to pour the foundation of the first house. It’s fine to focus on building the first house, then the second, and so-on. But we also need the infrastructure and amenities for the neighborhood to flourish.
