I spent much of yesterday attending, virtually, the Bloomberg Crypto Summit, held in New York City.

It was an excellent opportunity to hear from some of the more reliable names in the crypto space, and two things stood out to me.

The first was that Bloomberg was doing what all mainstream media tries to do today - pit people against each other.

It was almost comical to watch. No matter what they brought up or how hard they tried, they couldn't cause a rift between any of the panelists. I think this is what makes the crypto/blockchain space so viable for the future. There is a sense of everyone being in it together - a collaboration to find answers.

And that leads to the second thing that stood out. This space is full of young people - both men and women equally - working side by side to find solutions to our largest problems.

They don't have time to fuss at each other. They share what they know and what they think with confidence and trust that the other person has the same goals and values they do; showing mutual respect and support for each other throughout.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

When I see young people who are actively "doing" things, I have much confidence in the future.

Every generation has it's own struggles to overcome. This next generation is no different. But what is different is that they have decided to do it together rather than in competition.

That is a different world from the one I grew up in.

What do you think? Is the world passing into good hands? Do you see the young people as being the saviors or the victims of the future?
