    Nothing about bitcoin needs to change for it to be successful.

    Provable digital scarcity is one of the only working use cases for blockchain tech.

    Bitcoin improves upon on the features that make gold valuable.

    Gold is worth >$7 trillion.

    Bitcoin, as is, will be worth more.

    The novel nature and outsized ramifications of Bitcoin’s introduction for finance and beyond is more akin to the industrial revolution, signing of the Magna Carta, fall of the Berlin Wall, than the Internet or Social Media Revolutions.

    While they radically altered the world we live in, the Internet and social media, in hindsight, will be seen as less impactful in terms of disintermediation of preexisting power structures than blockchain technology since they were easier to co-opt by those in power.

    Public blockchains, in theory, take away authority from large, entrenched, institutions in a manner recent technology innovations have not. By giving direct ownership of value and data to individuals, blockchains have the capacity to change humanity on an unprecedented scale.

Augur is still easily the most exciting decentralized application that I know of.

Numerai is crushing it. Their Numeraire token (airdropped, not ico’d) dramatically increased the usage and quality of data sets for their stock market competitions.

[Augur] literally allows you to create a market for anything.

Ever hear of derivatives (largest asset class in the world)? Augur allows anyone to create derivates contracts for anything instead of banks just creating contracts for toxic assets.

I don't have a view on what the ultimate value of a Bitcoin will be nor do I care. I am interested in Bitcoin plain and simply because I believe it can be and possibly will be the financial and transactional protocol for the global Internet.

If something is to displace Bitcoin now, it will have to have sizable improvements and it will have to happen quickly. Otherwise, this network effect will carry Bitcoin to dominance.

Bitcoin takes powers from the central actors and returns it to merchants and consumers, savers and borrowers. Bitcoin brings back some pseudonymity in the transactions, and can be irrevocably traded like cash. And finally, it points a way towards a single currency – it is a bug, not a feature, that we have multiple global currencies with exchangers and transaction fees in between.
