Newish to cryptocurrencies, fairly technically informed and competent, but have almost zero confidence in my understanding of Cryptocurrencies. Have read the bitcoin whitepaper multiple times, have spent 10s of hours trying to learn more and more (I am probably approaching 100 hours), but I get more confused even as I learn more. The more I come to understand, the more I come to realize there is so much more I have no idea about.
As such, I do not see how this whole “thing” is going to ever expand past a very tiny niche of tech-savants, get-rich-quick-schemers, and criminals, frankly. Yet, like many, I hate that I let the whole thing pass me by.
