Future Directions for the Cryptoeconomy
Six years have now passed since Satoshi first released his whitepaper “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”, and the system has proven to have succeeded more wildly than almost everyone imagined. A simple experiment out of an obscure branch of computer science and cryptography-focused academic ended up growing to a $5 billion market cap, top-level meetings in major governments and regulatory institutions around the world, and the final coalescence of a dream of cryptography and decentralized trust that has been laying dormant for three decades. We’ve built the cryptoeconomy up to here. What now? What actual purposes can blockchains be used for? The way that the system is currently organized, with everything centralized into a single blockchain, is obviously not sustainable for very high levels of usage and hundreds of applications; what kind of a new system would replace it? Will we see one major cryptocurrency, five to fifteen major cryptocurrencies, or thousands of coins, one or more for each individual chain performing each individual task? And above all, what exactly is the ultimate goal?
