In 2012 Bitcoin entered the mainstream like Kanye at a New York Fashion show: everyone noticed, but nobody really knew what they were looking at.

Since then, the mainstream media has tried to quantify Bitcoin’s value and quote the price of the token as an indicator. The problem is that Bitcoin is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before and looking at the value of the token doesn’t really tell us anything. We need to correct this logic and look at the underlying ecosystem for answers.
