So yesterday, I said that bitcoin will not escape the regularity focus. This is a philosophical debate, rather than a technical one, and may be decided by the precedents that have gone before as the internet of money is actually Net 6.0.
What I mean by this is that the internet has undergone at least five iterations of development since it began – there may be more – and cryptocurrencies are the sixth. The six iterations to date include the:
- Internet of access
- Internet of information
- Internet of commerce
- Internet of content
- Internet of relationships
- Internet of value (or money if you prefer)
