We have certainly come a long way since the infamous Bitcoin pizza incident, where Laszlo Hanyecz ordered two pizzas from Papa John’s for 10,000 BTC back in 2010. It goes to show how much progress has been made in eight years — especially when you take a look at how much you’d pay for those same two pizzas with Bitcoin today. Given the gradual rise in value of Bitcoin over the years, early adopters who got their hands on substantial sums of the cryptocurrency found themselves with an incredible amount of wealth in the last two years.
NickAyton on crypto app tokes : But a slow visible Kodak-like decline won’t happen this time. Before long one of the thousands of people and organizations working on redefining and reinvent your market will do it, and then it is more likely your entire industry will be washed away, taking you with it… The lack of understanding in the board room can create a falsehood that there is safety in numbers, that scale and market share delivers some form of protection; that IT outsourcing or digital transformation will deliver marginal improvements in performance, simply put is no more than putting lipstick on the pig. These projects deliver lots of activity that can convince management everything is OK, while others are envisioning new ways of delivering 10x the Customer Experience through new value at less than 50% of the cost. A new generation of entrepreneurs is working hard to use Blockchain to destroy your shareholder value, completely.
