Gemini Exchange Co-Founder Winklevoss Predicts Crypto Will Be as Important as Email
Tyler Winklevoss, Gemini Crypto Exchange’s co-founder, and CEO has provided insight into his position in the upcoming ten years for crypto. In a nutshell, he sees crypto as more than a niche technology and a form of currency. Rather, he views it as having a crucial position in peoples’ daily lives. He tweeted:
Today, crypto is still a niche technology and form of money. It is not crucial to your everyday life the way email and other web applications are, but our thesis is that this will change — it’s already changing if you look close enough.

One of Bitcoin's, and other popular cryptocurrencies, best features is its inherent decentralized nature. No watchdog. No middleman. No CEO denying transactions. This decentralized quality associated with cryptocurrencies will be the driving force in the years to come.
That is, it will redesign the financial and monetary systems. Also, crypto will be the main choice for people because it provides freedom and transparency, which is what users are looking for. He stated,
“Crypto will make as great of a contribution to your personal freedom as the invention of the printing press, the personal computer, and the early Internet.”
In a world where we are told what to do and how to do it, is the free-thinking nature of Satoshi Nakamoto exactly what the world needs to thrive? The world is starting to understand what cryptocurrencies are and how useful they may be in saving individuals, as well as company's, time, money, and privacy. Many startups are trying to make crypto uses as easy as sending an email. This is truly one of the last steps to widespread adoption.
