People who use BitTorrent do not pay to download their videos, games and movies. How many people would actually use torrents if they had to pay 3% on the cost of everything they downloaded online to the person who created the Torrent software, when they actually have an option not to? This old model has a tendency to centralize power into the hands of those who are willing to be bought, and are looking out only for their own selfish interest and also stifle innovation and adoption rate. The new model incentivizes the need for quality products (movies, games, applications), in order for people to actually be willing to pay for them.
Well, here is my prediction of bitcoin cash & ethical altcoins future VS centralized bank digital currency & proprietary centralized crypto; All we have to do is look at past models to predict the future. Look at what bittorrent did to the movie and music industries, look at what it did to the software industry; look at what it did to the average computer user, now able to access any software, movie, song, or game ever created, for free. Its been unstoppable and has changed the face of all these industries and downloaders irrevocably. As a result software developers have created new innovations and mechanisms for these industries to make profit, like Adobes monthly payment model; Netflix and Itunes. My prediction is this, truly decentralized systems like bitcoin cash will irrevocably change the landscape of finance around the globe the same way bittorrent has; People will always have the option to watch or buy a movie, pay for software, pay for music; or they can download it freely via the internet, the same way people will always have an option to use BTC and other truly decentralized financial systems or use the currency issued by a given private institution or government; The majority of young people will opt to download freely and find alternate ways to access what is available to them (up and until they begin making a profitable living using the software that sustains them, and that will depend on the usefulness and quality of their product (be it digital currency or software). Think about that. Bear in mind we are the technological boomers; the landscape is going to change very rapidly in favor of the masses; Governments when it comes to bitcoin may try make an example out of 12-14 year old like they did with napster, to send a message to the world about their values and morals and ethics, and the dangers of defying the industries, but in the end its here to stay, and it will become more common and widely acceptable & available to the public than those sitting on the fence may presently believe, or even dream of.
