Let’s imagine a bank, government and a citizen of this government, just like you.

Banks know everything about you, the government knows everything about you, you know nothing about them. Like who takes care of your money, where do they store it, how they transfer it, how they use it and so on.

But… Ok, that’s ok, we can live with that. Let’s say you want to transfer your money to your mom or a wife, ok? You go to your online bank account (if you have one) most people still have to go to the local branch.

By the way, 39% of world population doesn’t have a bank account and 2 Billion adults don’t have access to formal financial services at all!

Considering you are a lucky one and have a bank account with online banking tool. You go on the website and put all information about your wife’s bank account, click “Transfer” and before your money will settle in your wife’s account it has to go through several banks partners, credit card company like Visa or Mastercard, clearinghouse, and several other institutions. How do you like it?

Unlike Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency operating on a blockchain, once you click “SEND” money go directly to your wife or mom and no one can influence this transaction. This is number 1 thing why the world just cannot ignore cryptocurrency.

So why cryptocurrency is better than banks or government?

You can hate it or love it, I recommend you to love it or at least understand how it works because sooner or later the world will be operating on a blockchain.
