Bitcoin is Only the Beginning: The Future of Cryptocurrencies

A bitcoin investment of $10,000 in early 2013 would be worth nearly $2 million today.

Why have cryptocurrencies risen so much in value?  It is because they represent more than an evolution in money, for their underlying blockchain technology is a force as potentially powerful and disruptive as the Internet.

The Financial Repression Authority interviewed Brett Rentmeester, President and Chief Investment Officer of WindRock Wealth Management.  This podcast addresses the following:
 
  • Why blockchain's security may be a solution for companies dealing with today's world of cyberattacks and hacking;
  • How various cryptocurrencies differ in purpose from each other;
  • Why industries from stock exchanges to real estate to social media stand to be disrupted as blockchain technology eliminates middlemen in favor of peer-to-peer transactions; and
  • How much more can the cryptocurrency market grow?
