As you can probably tell, this protest is meant to be a joke.
But this joke today is going to be the reality in the very near future.
This protest is representative of what will happen to those industries and companies that fail to understand times have changed.
Legacy industries that have gone unchallenged for decades will soon begin to see their monopoly slip away.
The consumer abuse that’s been possible due to a lack of competition is over. The biggest competitor big banks have ever faced has arrived and it’s not a company or organization, it’s a decentralized technology.
It will soon no longer be possible to charge the poorest people in the world exorbitant fees to send money back home to support their families.
Industries like the lucrative $15 billion overdraft industry that enrich banks will soon disappear.
And all the middlemen who’ve built business models simply from being in the middle – will see their control slowly slip away.
These are just a few of the hundreds – if not thousands of examples of the industries blockchain technology will disrupt.
As Jamie Dimon once said “Silicon Valley is Coming to Eat Our Lunch”.
Well Jamie, and all the others who stand to be disrupted – Bitcoin will be coming for a lot more than just your lunch if you fail to adapt to the new world we live in.
- Marco Streng, CEO Genesis Mining
Why are we doing this?
Two years ago, we announced our #ExploreBitcoin project which would aim to raise mainstream public awareness for bitcoin and the power of blockchain technology through creative public campaigns.
Our campaign started with dozens of billboards and taxi top signs across the country.
Then we launched a Bitcoin 32 kilometers into space and completed the highest altitude peer to peer transaction.
Next we did it again when we criticised Jamie Dimon with a massive mobile billboard that circled the Miami Bitcoin Conference.
Then we did it again when we launched another mobile billboard in Miami that highlighted journalists who publish articles announcing Bitcoin’s death, only to be proven wrong, time and time again.
We are going to be stepping these campaigns up and plan to launch many more throughout the remainder of 2018. Have an idea for a public campaign that could raise awareness for Bitcoin? Email us your ideas at [email protected]
