Andreas M. Antonopoulos has unique capability to explain new technologies to the laymen. He also has a deep insight into historical events that preceded to implementation of new technologies, and how new technologies are initially built on old infrastructures until an "infrastructure inversion" happens and they replace the old infrastructure. Comparisons to the automobile, electricity and internet explain the concept and predict a similar future for bitcoin and financial infrastructure.
