Just like a tool, it is in the beholder's hand to use it to their own will. Anything can be used for good or bad...crypto is no exception. Monetary value aside, blockchain technology is what will change the world beyond anything we can imagine. 10 years from now, everything will be utilizing the block chain and crypto currency will see mass adoption in every way (legal and illegal). It's up to the person to be smart enough to make a substantial addition to their fortune with this revolutionary tech. All these old geezers on here know nothing of the new technology and just sit back on their couch and spew B.S on the internet. I don't stand for idiocy, that's all. As a side distinction, block chain doesn't mean crypto-currency and vice versa. Both will bring tremendous and dare I say, limitless value for most if not all of humankind.
