Ethereum's Joseph Lubin Says Last Year's Contraction Is Ending As Crypto's Future Looks Good

Joseph Lubin: “With Last Year’s Contraction Now Ending, The Future Looks Good For Crypto”

ConsenSys and Ethereum co-Founder Joe Lubin recently spoke with CNN Money Switzerland about the future of blockchain technology and how he feels the traditional stock market will perform in 2019. During the course of the interview, Lubin also spoke about how mature the crypto industry had become within such a short period of time (especially when compared to the internet— a technology that took a full decade to catch on with the masses)

Following these comments, the tech savant then went on to discuss the complications that currently exist with employing blockchain technology.

Final Take

In closing out his interview, Lubin went on to talk about the burgeoning Swiss crypto industry. On the subject, he was quoted as saying that “Switzerland had from the very start been at the forefront of supporting the blockchain movement”. He then went on to applaud the effort made by the country’s government in embracing the use of crypto assets for certain fee payments.

“At a national level they’ve been looking at how to issue tokens legally and I think they’ve got a good framework for that. In Zürich, our identity solution is actually being used now to enable citizens to access government services […]”
