Of the many things causing The Establishment to soil itself these days, cryptocurrency is high on the list.
Few things terrify Establishment elites and dependents like the thought of a currency system operating outside of State control. Without the power to magically produce “money” out of thin air, their endless programs and wars would die of starvation in very short order. Without the power to “legally counterfeit” wealth, the vultures and leaches atop the pyramid under which we now labor would have to actually work, earn, risk, and fail on a level playing field with everyone else, and we all know they’re never going to do that…voluntarily, anyway.
If you or I do what they do, it’s called “counterfeiting”.
But when they ascribe value to otherwise valueless paper or digital scraps, and then use the coercive power of the State to enforce our compliance with their use of this power, it’s called “legitimate legal currency production”.
This is the context into which cryptocurrencies have been born.
On the Big Picture side, cryptocurrencies represent one of the more dramatic and culture-rocking fruits of the decentralizing technologies being raised up by God at this remarkable time in His creation of history. To see technology in the hands of non-insiders used to effectively challenge the very heart of the Establishment’s System of Systems the way that cryptocurrencies have shaken long-standing banking empires is awesome to behold.
While there are many questions still to be answered where cryptocurrencies are concerned, and all cryptos are unique creations with strengths and weaknesses of their own, the fact of their emergence is a very significant and beautiful thing.
Old paradigms are fading away.
Long-standing and long-ruling idols are crumbling and about to fall.
Empires built on the great lie of fiat currency are inn their last days.
Dramatic decentralizing change is coming…and fast.

Whatever your take on cryptocurrency and whether our not you decide to become personally involved with this decentralized and rapidly growing economic option, we should all thank God for the dramatic ways in which He is even now moving to decentralize power and destroy the idols that have enslaved us for so very long.
