TL;DR: The Crypto Hustle With Eléonore Blanc presents its fourth episode. We consider how March of 2020 will be a neat, tidy dividing line in world history due to the coronavirus pandemic. How this demarcation impacts cryptocurrency is anyone’s guess, but we have a few ideas.

Coronavirus Pandemic is a Key Moment in Cryptocurrency History
At the time of our recording, coronavirus gripped the globe. At least 1/7 of the world’s population is on lockdown, and financial markets are teetering on the brink. Governments are proposing massive bailouts and economic interventions like never before. Trillions upon trillions of dollars are expected to flood economies.
Whatever else we might not understand, one thing is true: your life will divide from March 2020, before and after. Nothing will be left untouched. So where does cryptocurrency come into all this? Isn’t something like the coronavirus pandemic and its implications exactly what all crypto enthusiasts envisioned as needed to happen for greater adoption?
We debate that notion, and try to be as candid as possible without coming across too much as pure shills (we both love crypto, obviously). But does cryptocurrency have a role in reforming society post-March 2020? Maybe all the emphasis on economic discussions, from direct cash payments and other, more novel schemes, will bring about a new literacy with regard to hard money’s value? We think there’s hope.
