Dear Millennials,

Now we are going to be the ones that will say we remember back then when VCR, Motorola V360, DVDs, and USBs were a thing and a generation that doesn’t know about a world when there was no Television, radio, or PlayStation. We read about that world in books and in its own right. It was amazing and horrible at the same time. The same way our parents’ world has been fantastic and terrible at the same time.

What about our world, the world of internet, the world of decentralizing resources. From my perspective and in my honest opinion, the internet gives us the power to create a message, and unite millions around the world. It’s time for us to get closer together instead of letting our phone screens and social accounts drive us further apart. Because for better or worse, our generation will determine life on this earth, life for the next generation that will hopefully be lucky not to remember a world of not having freedom and authority in their lives. We hold power to make this happen for them, and that power is called Blockchain Technology.

Here are the top 5 examples of Blockchain powered/enabled applications that are already changing the game for those of us who spend too much time on the internet:

Luno:

The easiest way to buy Bitcoin and Ethereum
