Land Rover, the popular luxury automobile maker, recently released a list of historical events. To many people’s surprise, the Twitter post also acknowledged the creation of a bitcoin network in 2009 as one of them.
The advertisement – which talks about Range Rover’s 50 years in business – makes a note of significant historical events, starting from 1967, when the first successful heart transplant was carried out, to 1990 when Tim Berner Lee invented the Internet and then came the invention of Bitcoin in 2009.
This acknowledgment by one of the most popular car manufacturers in its official ad suggests the impact that bitcoin has had over the last decade as an innovative concept that is still being explored and leveraged. These kinds of mainstream acknowledgment can propel bitcoin to widespread adoption.
The fact that bitcoin has changed its public perception from being an internet bubble just a couple of years ago to being widely accepted as an asset class suggests the potential that bitcoin holds.
