It’s a tale as old as time. As one generation grows older, the next generation becomes more independent. The younger generation creates or popularizes new forms of technology, art, and culture, while the older generation tends to reject them — usually because the older generation doesn’t understand them.
How many generations of parents have been critical of or bewildered by their childrens’ taste in music? Or their interest in new-fangled tech? Whether it’s blues, jazz, or rock and roll — or computers, video games, or cryptocurrencies — there have always been critics of new music and new technologies.
We’re seeing this dismissive attitude in action in the crypto world today. As crypto fights for its regulatory existence, many regulators seem to view crypto as an incomprehensible technology that simply can’t be trusted.
In this episode of Crypto Insider, Vin Narayanan and Allison Brickell discuss the pervasive “kids these days” attitude regulators seem to have about crypto — and how they might be convinced to embrace crypto instead.
Thanks for watching!
P.S. For those who celebrate Father’s Day, make sure to call your dad this weekend. (No matter how he feels about crypto.)
