Bitcoin is Bigger Than Grumpy CatSubmitted by Chris Goodbudski on Fri, 12/06/2013 - 18:03
"Meow." stated the famous cat.
Now I like cat videos as much as anyone else. Recently I discovered a video of a really grumpy-looking cat, which I assumed would be not liked as much as the other cat videos I've watched that had much cuter cats in them.
Amazingly, tens of thousands of people 'like' this, and are even willing to share it with others. It has no weight, it is not attractive, and no central bank is dictating its value. But people desire it anyway.
Grumpy cat has its detractors, however. And they are emphatic. But I don't think they entirely understand grumpy cat, and are quick to judge. They should see what comes of it, and let the market decide.
As for grumpy cat itself, it will grow, it will change, it will produce offspring. Indeed, entire new businesses may be built on the grumpy cat platform as it grows. And there will be copycats of course.
