This Steve Jobs speech is still relevant to cryptocurrency today

As if he was talking about the current situation in the cryptocurrency space... A speech by Steve Jobs on an event a long time ago was widely shared in the crypto community over the weekend, because it was so applicable to what Bitcoin is experiencing right now. 

While it’s unclear what event it was, the answer of the Apple founder to a question was spot on if you put it into today’s context for cryptocurrency. Jobs talks about how even if a person, a company or an entire sector can show great potential, the elderly, or the establishment, can still look down on you. In the case of cryptocurrency that are the governments and the traditional finance sector.

"I’m sure that a lot of you had the experience where you’re changing, you’re growing as a person. And people tend to treat you the way you were 18 months ago. And it’s really frustrating sometimes when you’re growing up, you’re becoming more capable… and people still treat you like you were 18 months ago, it can be very frustrating. Well, it’s the same with a company,” Jobs said.

The Apple inventor added, “It’s the same with the press. The press is gonna have a lag time. The best thing we can do about the press is to embrace them, do the best we can to educate them about the strategy, but to keep our eye on the prize.”

The speech is considered very relevant with crypto that the Twitter user who posted it said, “My god, may as well be a speech on #Bitcoin.”
