6 questions for Mati Greenspan from Quantum Economics

We ask the builders in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sectors for their thoughts on the industry … and we throw in a few random zingers to keep them busy!

This week our 6 questions go to Mati Greenspan, a cryptoanalyst and founder and CEO of Quantum Economics, an investment analysis and advisory firm specializing in the cryptocurrency space.

Mati is the former Senior Market Analyst at eToro and a licensed money manager in the European Union. He is co-author of the e-book The Complete Guide to Fintech Trading and Investing and currently advises publicly for LunarCrush, Electroneum and Luno.

1 – Does it matter if we ever find out who Satoshi really is or was? Why or why not?

While our team is currently doing extensive research on this, I don’t think we’ll ever be able to make a definitive statement, and I kind of hope no one ever finds out. The secret of Bitcoin’s origins has a certain pull that I think draws people into the network.

2 – What do you think will be the biggest trend in the blockchain for the next 12 months?

In an industry that moves so fast, it’s really hard to tell that far in advance. Personally, I look forward to seeing more utility-based ones non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Using them to unlock exclusive content, as event tickets or as part of role-playing games is extremely exciting.

3 – What problem do you think blockchain has a chance to solve but has not yet been tried?

That’s a fun question. I would say that free, fair elections are a problem that many countries face, and I haven’t seen enough effort in the blockchain space to solve this problem. Maybe now that there are crypto-friendly politicians are elected in the United States we will finally see it.

4 – When you tell people that you are in the blockchain industry, how do they react?

Most of the people I meet already know this, so it’s not a big shock anymore. Increasingly, people are becoming familiar with Bitcoin (BTC) and blockchain, so I suppose it is becoming more and more common to have a job in this industry. I’m always happy when people quit their square jobs to work for Bitcoin, and I do my best to make this easier.

5 – Are you signing the idea of ​​Bitcoin as a means of payment, a store of value, both … or neither?

Yes, both. For me a lot. Most of my team at Quantum Economics prefer to be paid in Bitcoin. It’s much faster, easier, and cheaper to process internationally than any payment app or bank. The third part of the trilogy, which defines money, is a unit of account that takes a bit of getting used to, but we are increasingly thinking in Bitcoin terms.

6 – What would you like to see in tokens? When – if at all – would you expect it?

Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa”. I’ve been tweeting about it at the Louvre Museum for a while. In my eyes, it’s only a matter of time. Could really happen any day.
