Navigating Bitcoin Is as Much Art as Economics
The stratospheric rise of cryptocurrencies has upended how people, companies and even governments think about money.
As the world became increasingly digital, it stood to reason that eventually our money — how we create it, how we spend it, how we invest it — would become digital, too. The advent of Bitcoin, the first decentralized cryptocurrency, was a curious phenomenon, but in recent years it has skyrocketed in value (although its instability makes it not an asset for the faint of heart). Now companies are investing in crypto; the art world is enthralled by it; and governments are pondering how to manage its risks while still encouraging innovation. The only thing we’d count on? Crypto is here to stay.
