RE: The Growing Value of Cryptocurrency

in LeoFinance8 months ago

Will people be talking about it in 5 years or simply doing it?

We do not really talk about the Internet as much as simply utilize it. People log onto Twitter and Facebook without giving it a thought.

Ultimately, people will log onto their favorite Hive-based applications and do whatever interests them.

This is going to really change things for a lot of people.

Yeap, the more generalized something is, the more it takes the form of "reality" for people and stops being a "part of reality". The Internet is a wonderful example as it was such a controversial thing in the past but is now just another aspect of existence.

Very true. I come at this from the perspective of someone who has been involved in the podcasting and social media space since 2005. I've seen the beginnings of what was just a few early adopters to what is now a robust industry with mass adoption. So when I look at HIVE and blockchain content creation in general I have an understanding that mirrors what I experienced and saw happen with podcasting and social media. That doesn't mean it's correct, but I can't help but see so many similarities. Which is what prompted my original comment.

To give further illustration, I'll go back in time a bit:
There was a time when the only place you heard about social media was at social media specific events. Now social media is part of every event, strategy, ad, plan, etc... It has become just a normal part of how we live and work. But that wasn't always the case. Nowadays, if you go to say, a knitters convention there will be a social media component to it such as "How to do knitting tutorials on YouTube" or "The Knitter's Guide to Instagram", etc..

Right now the only place you are really hearing about content creation on the blockchain is at blockchain and crypto specific events. There will be a day (I predict the next 3-5 years) when knitters are talking about "Knitting content for the blockchain" or "The Knitters Guide to Hive" etc... and when that happens that's when we have mass adoption.

Having shared my take, I do have a tendency to see things through rose-colored glasses. So, I am very open to this type of discussion. I don't know what I don't know. Which is why the type of content you and other experienced, seasoned, and veteran HIVE content creators produce is such a valuable resource to newbies like myself. Your understanding (and others like you) of this space and community is far superior to anything I can find from a random Google search. Thank you for your insight and generous nature supporting HIVE building a vibrant community. I'll close with the one thing I can say with 100% certainty is that Web 3.0 ROCKS!
