This is a great article on how one idea + technology can change the world!

“Not only will Satoshi Nakamoto's contribution change the way we think
about money, it is likely to upend the role central banks play in
conducting monetary policy, destroy high-cost money transfer services such
as Western Union, eliminate the 2-4% transactions tax imposed by
intermediaries such as Visa, MasterCard and Paypal, eliminate the
time-consuming and expensive notary and escrow services and indeed
transform the landscape of legal contracts completely.”
