I remember when you couldn’t simply say ‘go to my website. You had to first explain the concept of the internet[…] I remember when you couldn’t simply send someone a link to your new song. […] I love those moments when technology moves from science fiction to mainstream. Digital assets are standing on the verge of this move[…]
In addition to this, Rogers noted the “inevitable transformation” of technology and referred to the cryptocurrency “revolution” with regard to Ledger as well as the nascent digital assets industry.
