“I would be surprised if 10 years from now we’re not using electronic currency in some way, now that we know a way to do it that won’t inevitably get dumbed down when the trusted third party gets cold feet.”

– Satoshi Nakamoto

We are living in an enlightened age of cryptographic, technological, and social innovation. The blockchain is ushering in a new era of prosperity not unlike the Renaissance. To understand our future, we must examine the past.

What brought about the Renaissance? What were the themes that created such a radically different future? What can we learn that might help us understand the present and tomorrow?
