Greetings, Ninja!
Prediction: one day in the not-so-distant future, we’ll look back on the days before bitcoins and wonder how we got anything done. In fact, many tech experts predict that, over the next decade, “cryptocurrency” will grow at a faster rate than the Internet did in the late 90s and early 2000s.

But before the revolution, we’re doing a little self-education. This brave new world of blockchains and miners has a zillion moving parts, and we’ll be the first to admit to feeling just a tad confused at times.

The good news is that there’s a ton of info out there, and we’re all in this together. Let’s study up, swap articles, and ask questions until we’re virtual banking currency wizards! We’ve got this.

Rock on!
