In your opinion, what is the biggest news in the crypto industry in in 2018?
Nobody can ignore the 2018 cryptocurrency market crash. It was – in Micky’s opinion – the biggest cryptocurrency story of the year.
But in Australia, and indeed around the world, the positive stories far outweighed the negatives.
In a huge endorsement of blockchain technology, Australian energy sharing project Power Ledger won the 2018 Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC), after impressing a judging panel which included Sir Richard Branson.
Early in the year it was announced travellers arriving or departing Brisbane airport would be able to use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at its restaurants, shops and stores.
And In September, newly elected Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison revealed he “believes” in the disruptive power of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies.
Do you have any predictions for 2019?
In 2019, the best blockchain projects will start to stand out from the rest of the herd. And Micky will be there to tell their stories.
