I love watching engineering/space/science videos to constantly humble myself and remind how small we are in the universe. Anyway, was rewatching one of the Big Think videos and listening to Michio Kaku talk about Type I, II, III civilizations on the Kardashev scale and how we’re advancing towards a type I civilization.
He mentions the internet being a Type 1 telephone system and English being a Type I planetary language amongst other examples. Then it struck me, Bitcoin could potentially be the birth of our Type I monetary system for the planet bringing us one step closer to reaching a full Type I Civilization status (assuming humans don’t destroy each other before we get there). Anyway, thought I would share it in case it might strike the same thought in anyone else too.
