I’ve been asking myself what makes eCash special? What sets it apart?
I could talk about the roadmap, the experienced developers, the self-funding mechanism, and of course, the imminent launch of Avalanche post-consensus. But as great as all that is, I don’t think that’s what makes eCash special, at least not to me.
Originally I thought my answer to this question was something else. But no matter how many times I tried writing that article it just wouldn’t come out right.
Which brings me to a story. Many years ago, I was was with an old friend sitting on the patio of this bar when she asks me, “Why do you like to get high?”
I take a drag from my cigarette and think about it for a second before answering, “Because it changes your perspective. The only other way I know how to do that is to fall in love, but that’s not something you can just buy.”
What can I say, I was young and wanted to sound cool, but I also had a point.
I bring this up because I realized that what makes eCash special to me is that it does the same thing. In a relatively short period of time it has totally changed my perspective of the world and pried open my eyes to a new way of looking at things.
Indeed, eCash is about the solid roadmap, and the technical talent, but it’s also about envisioning the new. It’s about reimagining (and redefining) the way we see the world.
For me, this project represents a great deal more than just another investment opportunity. It’s more than just another cryptocurrency, or just another Bitcoin fork. It’s my greatest hope.
I know that sounds overly dramatic, but it’s also the truth. I’m passionate about this project because I want to see it change the world for the better, for this generation as well as all the generations to come.
Perhaps you think this almost sounds religious, but for me the eCash project isn’t about having faith in a higher power, it’s about having faith in ourselves, and in one another.
I don’t know what the future holds. I don’t know whether eCash can fulfill my hopes and dreams or not, but the one thing it has done is opened my eyes to the kind of future I would like to see.
Time to get billions of other people to see it too.
