Crypto industry momentum ‘is picking up, and it’s unstoppable’ — Ethereum co-founder Joe Lubin

Crypto appears to be in a bull market, perhaps not by a technical definition, but most of the attendees at ETHDenver would agree that it sure feels like it. 

Even Ethereum co-founder and Consensys CEO Joe Lubin believes that things are looking up for crypto, and he’s convinced that the best is yet to come.

According to Lubin,

“Satoshi invented decentralized trust as opposed to centralized trust. We’d never seen decentralized trust on the planet before.”
