In this talk, Andreas justifies why money is the “killer app” for blockchain technology and how a foundation of commerce must be developed before we move into the other exciting use cases beyond money. He also drives home that as we engineer these cryptocurrencies, we must grow our understanding of the fundamental properties of money.
This talk took place on May 8th 2017 at the Blockchain.NZ Conference in Auckland, New Zealand: https://antonopoulos.com/event/the-blockchain-new-zealand-conference/
