Technology is playing a growing role of importance in the daily lives of consumers and business all over the world. While many aspects of life could benefit from technological innovation, it is important to remember the end users are determining the future of our society. Bitcoin offers this capability in the financial sector, but there is so much more to do if we want to transcend country borders.
Crossing Borders With Innovative Technology
When it comes to wielding technology to cross [fictive]borders, there is still a lot of work to be done. While consumers can easily connect to people all over the world through various apps and social networks, every single one of these efforts is still operating within a border of its own. For example, Facebook can’t properly communicate with Twitter, and Instagram does not play nice with Slack.
Integrating different tools of communication with one another will be one of the major keys to create a true borderless society. Borders exist in many different forms, whether they are country borders, technology borders, or ecosystem borders. There is no global solution, although one could argue the Internet is coming pretty close to achieving that status.
Speaking of the Internet, this is a perfect example of how technology can bring people closer together and chance our society in a way no one ever thought to be possible. While there are both advantages and disadvantages to the Internet, the technology allows people to use it as they see fit. Such a level of personal freedom is a rarity these days.
Technology is evolving at such a rapid pace that it becomes difficult to keep the balance between convenience, security, and personal freedom. Devices gather a ton of user information without us even realizing it, and that information is being transmitted to someone somewhere. In fact, our user information is of high value to some unknown parties, not all of who succeed in keeping that data safe.
Crossing borders through technology will eventually lead to further decentralization. Bitcoin is showing the world how financial services can be decentralized, by creating an ecosystem that works regardless of any border. In the end, there will be no more room for centralized services, platforms, and archaic system. Technology is for all of us and belongs to all of us.
As a result, we as the end user can control the direction in which technology is evolving. Every single one of us is empowered to take technology into our hands and determine how we want to use it. Embracing this approach will make all types of borders vaporize in due time, and herald a new era where every single being on this planet finds himself on an even playing field.
