If you’re amazed at the opportunities cryptocurrencies offer an individual, just imagine what’s possible on a global scale. With the decentralised technology of cryptocurrencies, transparency is built in.
This trustless and transparent feature of the technology is what led to Tamarin Gerriety’s Pennydrop moment. Living in a society so focused on safety and security, she realised there’s a huge lack of trust. A decentralised system flips that on its head.
“We live behind high walls, and electric fences, and our guard dogs, and our security companies. The thing we don’t have here is trust.”
In a trustless system, it’s much harder for people to take advantage, because there’s no way to break that trust. Open and immutable public records mean accountability and security, even for those who are most vulnerable.
