Like most Bitcoin fans out there, I talk about Bitcoin a lot. From the person sitting next to me on the plane to the waiter serving my table drinks, every chance I get I end up talking about Bitcoin. This isn’t something I intentionally force on people, it’s something that just naturally ends up fitting into so many different conversations and every time a Bitcoin conversation starts, I eventually am asked the same question:
Wow. What a year it’s been! 2016 was full of exciting news in the world of cryptocurrency: we’ve seen continued innovation amidst the blockchain; we’ve seen a steady growth of Bitcoin and increasing global acceptance of the currency; and of course, we’ve seen a growth of Genesis Mining in both our bitcoin farm hardware and customer base.
In October, we did our first ever customer survey, and we were thrilled with the results. It took us a little while to go through all the responses (there were over 2500!), but we wanted to share the most interesting points with you.
Take a moment to imagine the perfect currency – what traits would it have? Fungibility, for sure; portability, perhaps? It would need to be durable, divisible, decentralized. Immune to forgery and counterfeit with a predictable supply. Governments would have no sovereignty over it, and most importantly, it would be adaptable. The perfect currency still doesn’t exist, of course – but Bitcoin is not far off.
