Former CTO of Coinbase, Balaji S. Srinivasan, has said Bitcoin has successfully done what election failed to do in just 10 years.
Bitcoin, the largest digital currency by market capitalization, is quite gaining vast popularity on daily basis. The growth is not really the most surprising, but the interval it took BTC to accumulate a number of successes amidst stern criticisms keep its lovers in awe.
Coinbase Former CTO: Bitcoin is Insurmountable
Reacting to an article published on Bloomberg Crypto, former CTO of Coinbase, Balaji S. Srinivasan averred that Bitcoin is achieving its mission to change the global financial and payment system, as it has since changed what election could not in just 10 years of its emergence.
He said “Bitcoin changed the world in just ten years. A reform that could not have been accomplished with any election …”
He also pointed to the qualities embedded in Bitcoin, such as decentralization. Using the measures they take to choose the “chair” of the Federal Reserve, which is not likely by election, he said cryptocurrency enthusiasts and holders can indirectly vote for the digital currency through their wallets.
“…Because when did you last vote for the chair of the Federal Reserve? But you can vote with your wallet for Bitcoin.” Balaji S concluded.
