Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work.
We need to come up with use cases for this technology that drive clear benefits for individuals and institutions - these are our customers. Too often we see bitcoin and blockchain technologies as solutions in search of a problem. We don't just need these systems to be technically better than the alternatives - we need them to be more user-friendly.

Agreeable people are warm and friendly. They're nice; they're polite. You find a lot of them in Canada.
Scotland is a picturesque country where the people are friendly yet completely incomprehensible. Also, the national delicacy is a sheep's stomach filled with its liver, lungs, and heart.
