Andreas Antonopoulos — man with great influence within kriptonyte. In 2014 his book Mastering Bitcoin was a good impetus to the rising popularity of Bitcoin around the world.

As you see, the high volatility of the crypt will play a role in the mass adoption of digital assets?
Volatility is an inevitable factor that accompanies the small market size and low liquidity of digital assets at the moment. When volatility occurs during a downtrend, with traders starts to panic. When she appears during growth, investors become euphoric, turning a blind eye to sober analysis of the market.

What good and bad happened in the industry over the past year? Now we’re closer to the adoption of the blockchain than before?
In the case of Bitcoin, the debate over scalability gradually disappeared due to the fork. Now everyone can choose their own strategy for the development of cryptocurrency. Unfortunately, the forks was the cause of many misunderstandings, as different projects try to use the same brand.
But altcoins are just beginning to encounter the first serious problem of scalability, which was observed in Bitcoin three years ago. Developers are faced with a difficult choice — they will have to sacrifice some part of decentralization and anonymity in favor of speed of transactions.
What will be the impact of blockchain technology on society in the coming years?
