SOME OF HIS THOUGHTS ON CRYPTO CURRENCY:
As software eats the world, crypto-economies will eat organizations based on network effects.
“Software is eating the world”, a phrase coined by Marc Andreessen, describes the effect by which services get commoditized into software platforms: tax accountants to TurboTax, hotels to Airbnb, taxis to Uber, etc.
Nowadays, the most successful large scale organizations base their power on the sheer number of people involved. Governments, corporations, and the internet are examples of these organizations: it is almost impossible for a competing product or organization to overtake them due to their vast network effects.
FACTS FROM ESTEBAN ON CRYPTO CONCEPT.
