In the latest New Money Review podcast, Paul Gordon, the founder of Coinscrum, the UK’s oldest and most popular cryptocurrency networking and events group, shares his thoughts on the past, present and future of the now-booming digital asset sector.
In the podcast, Gordon says cryptocurrencies may be approaching the end of an eleven-year bull market that’s lasted since the creation of bitcoin.
However, he says, the long-term ‘killer app’ of cryptocurrency may not be in investment or financial speculation at all. Instead, says Gordon, networks like bitcoin could serve as the foundation for a new global system of digital identity.
