In a sense, it seems to me to be unavoidable, and in other ways I feel it only happens if a lot of people make it happen. So I dedicated my life to projects in space and to helping the piece of what I can to grow. And a street hell has certainly arrived. Every financial institution in the world is watching it. Every government is a little annoyed and a little bit annoyed. nervous about it. Tens of millions of people have used it. Most people in the developed world have heard about it at this point. So yes, he made tremendous progress.
There's still a long way to go, but it has a much higher chance of conquering the world today than when it started. "
