It is most fascinating to read Erik Voorhees's (CEO ShapeShift.com - https://shapeshift.com/ )
post from July 14th 2021 entitled;-
ShapeShift is Decentralizing
I'd like to draw your attention to one particular statement Erik made;-
"Faster than most of us recognize, we are moving toward an open, immutable financial system. It started with Bitcoin as immutable base money, but it doesn’t end there.
It ends when we have an entire system of money, credit, and value exchange that is captured by no central entity, and subservient to no flag. A system that empowers all of humanity equitably, just like the mathematics upon which it is built."
