"it was recommended to me by one of the VCs that invested in my first startup - unfortunately a bit late. it was like reading the post-mortem for my startup, except it was all written before we ever started.

@jb55 Wrt where we are on the bitcoin adoption curve, if there are 22m bitcoin wallets, and we are following a maximalist path where a significant amount of the globe adopts, I would argue you are not even into the "Early Adopters" phase whatever that means per the maths.

Your posts got me curious and I'm going to checkout Crossing the Chasm.
