Here’s some things I’m thinking about. Few people own Bitcoin worldwide. Those that do own BTC and crypto are likely to keep buying more. Younger generations are just as likely to buy crypto as they are stocks. As Gen Z starts earning money, they’ll likely increase their crypto positions as they age and their wages & salaries increase. Roughly 1/4 of the world is unbanked and lacks access to WiFi. There’s still billions and billions of people unconnected. I don’t think older people will buy BTC once they do get connected and banked, but their future offspring likely will, increasing the % of BTC owners.

TLDR: We’re early.
