Want to know where Crypto is in a few years? This is my prediction. My only request is you consider this from the mainstream consumer’s mind, i.e. the majority buying power of the world who don’t know squat about crypto and blockchain.
1/30/2021 Sally wakes up at 5:20 for her morning run. Check’s into thebitcoin.pub uploads a selfie into the workout thread and off she goes. She checks her Fitbit when she gets back and she ran 5 miles, or .05 Fitbit tokens. That brings her total for January up to 1.5 Fitbit tokens – or 15% off at Fitbit’s partnered retailers Nike, Under Armor, Muscle Milk, Natural Grocers. She opens up her Fitbit app while starting her breakfast and looks through merchandise and buys a new pair of running shoes that she just saved 15% on. Life is good. She turns on the TV which has zero ads since all the retailers decided to shift the 80 billion dollars they piss away in TV ads that no one watches into “tokens” i.e. discounts.

This is how it shakes down in my mind. If you have ever taken a business class, you understand that the key to any retail business is to control market share. Right now, companies spend Billions of dollars on ads that are being ignored by the masses. Don’t believe me? Check out the study that shows people don’t even look at the right side of a screen anymore cause that’s where all the ads. Ads are becoming ineffective, so blockchain gives major corporations the unique opportunity to incentivize vs. sell. Think about the Current ICO so many of you were interested in joining. Picture this but with Facebook, and on steroids.
The only way to control the retail client in life after blockchain is to incentivize them to keep their money there. So, content creators get paid with a Facebook Token, which is only redeemable to those companies that play ball with Facebook.
In a world without advertisements, or at least in a world where data is an asset class the only way Corporations can control the consumer and to keep market share is to incentivize them and keep the money within the corporate network.
TL:DL Corporations will create the equivalent of Bed Bath and Beyond’s 20% off coupons in the form of tokens and you’ll get paid to use their consumer products.
