Cryptocurrencies as a unique kind of digital money (especially Bitcoin) is I believe one topic which for many people, even countries (Africa) is really problem solutions. And in fact I focus on searching opportunity in payments (with which is early mvp).

The blockchain related ideas are mostly not solving any real problems. These ideas very often completely redefine the thing like let's say DeFi as a decentralized banking. More futurism and ideology than business in it IMAO (currently). But I know it and now understand it better. And I think that in my case - I like it - to be a part of something what is rather movement than business opportunity.
