Bitcoin answers the Byzantine General’s problem, but could it also answer the [Drake Question](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_equation) too?
Bitcoin answers the Byzantine General’s problem, but could it also answer the Drake Question too? If we use the Drake Equation to estimate the number of intelligent and technically advanced civilizations on other planets, we are left with a question as to why we have not found alien life. This results in a very frightening conclusion that there must be a Great Filter at some point that acts as an impassable barrier. Often, this is speculated something like a biological filter—such as the jump from one to multicellular organisms, or where a civilization develops the capacity to destroy itself through nuclear warfare and then promptly does so... But what if the filter is not resource depletion, biological hurdles, or nuclear holocaust, but what if it is instead an economic filter? We can easily see that government’s grow to whatever size they are allowed to grow by economic reality. That is, governments grow and grow, inefficiently consuming resources and inhibition progress, but eventually they seem to hit a wall and collapse as inflationary pressures build under the economic pressure of poor financial management until people exit that currency in favor of another. In other words, government’s ability to continue grow is limited only by their ability to maintain control over the economy they parasitically leech off of. We can imagine a situation where a failing government that has full control over what currency its underlying economy uses to the point where they could prevent people from switching to another fallback currency, and thus short circuiting the hyperinflation failsafe that keeps government economically constrained from the runaway destruction of resources. It is fairly clear that the monetary trend before Bitcoin was toward centralization and digitization—e.g. the European countries transitioning to use the Euro. Eventually, this would have resulted in a currency monopoly (as money is a natural monopolistic market), of which some governmental body would have absolute control. In this situation, with no breaker-like failsafe in the form of hyperinflation, it is reasonable to conclude such government would grow and grow until it strangles the underlying economy past the point of what would be hyperinflation failure into what is a more permanent economic death that spirals into a socialist dystopia until there is no productivity left for the parasite to leech off of. But we have Bitcoin, so that scenario can never happen here on our planet. Perhaps other alien worlds developed a comparable level of technological advancement only to have all of that progress destroyed by some alien version of Karl Marx and authoritarian governments that forced economic control upon their alien worlds through control of whatever centralized currency they used to the point of total annihilation. What if we passed the Great Filter in 2009?

After seven years in Bitcoin, I have never been more confident that this network is now absolutely unstoppable. Nothing short of an extinction level event can stop Bitcoin from slowly but surely growing as a global, agnostic, alternative network for storing and transferring value.
Back in 2013 when the entire market cap hit $1 Billion for the first time, it was really scary to put a considerable amount of money in BTC. You might like Bitcoin and find it interesting but doubt would still creep up in your mind about its staying power and the fact that one bug could bring it all down. Mt. Gox got hacked, 800,000 BTC stolen, it crashed from $1200 to $190 by 2015, so how do you even believe that 5 years later it would be a sustained $200+ billion market? Yet here we are. As long as the Bitcoin blockchain is churning out new blocks of unstoppable transactions, that's all that matters. Naysayers don't understand that this is all Bitcoin needs to do: Churn out new blocks every ten minutes. And with every new block, a monumental amount of energy and work is stacked on top of the previous block, and so on, and so forth, making it stronger. At 99.98% uptime for 11 years, it's sticky enough to now last much longer than that. This network will be transferring and storing trillions of dollars within this decade and beyond.
