Choi’s comment brings to mind the days of small-screened flip phones touting little or no internet usability compared to the smart phones of today. Such old-school phones often required texting via a keypad with both numbers and letters. This, contrasting current smart phones with massive screens, internet access and various keyboard functionalities. A vast number of solutions exist for people to become involved in the crypto space — from trading apps, to payment facilitators such as BitPay, to asset availability on PayPal. Interacting with crypto assets directly, however, can be a cumbersome task for new folks, depending on how they approach it. Spending crypto assets also remains potentially convoluted when it comes to considering the possible tax implications involved in each transaction.
“We are seeing so much participation now, we feel like there’s just a great opportunity ahead of us,” Choi added of crypto. Over the past year or so, the crypto industry has gained a growing amount of mainstream interest. Such interest has come in line with significant upside price action from Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. “In many ways, I always kind of take the analogy of like the old mobile phones, right, that had these clunky clunky interfaces. We’re in kind of that phase of crypto, so we have to make it more usable. We have to make it more accessible. We have to have more regulatory certainty for certain folks to get off the sidelines and participate.”
