It’s a new year and a new decade. It’s also the second decade for bitcoin. Look how far the revolutionary idea for blockchain and cryptocurrency has come in its first ten years. Now imagine what the next ten can bring. We need you to help spread the word about blockchain technology whenever and wherever possible. We think the future depends on it. Have a happy New Year, stack up on cryptocurrency, and have a prosperous “roaring 20s”.
