It represents a trusted system that maintains and enforces the status quo, i.e., the establishments’ order. Disrupting that system would mean a whole new world—a world where power is broken down and democratized, as in made accessible to all vs. the few who control it. So, if virtual currencies were just the natural progression of money, the evolution of portable power, the succession from physical to digital; for some, that would be a scary thought, for others, it could mean liberation.
