Brandon Possin is a foreign service officer serving at the U.S. embassy in Tokyo and an investor in digital assets. The views expressed are the author’s own and not necessarily those of the U.S. government.

All around me, I see the next wave of the internet taking form, but I have a hard time talking about it in the office. That’s because my colleagues tend to dismiss digital assets as 21st century “tulips,” one of the most famous market bubbles in history. Many refuse to discuss blockchain or crypto assets in any formal setting at all.
