“Paper money is going away. And crypto is a far better way to transfer values than a piece of paper, that’s for sure.” – Elon Musk

It all seems so simple now. But not so long ago the idea that people could send money to somebody else without having to use an intermediary, as you can do in a seamless Dragon Social Wallet to wallet transaction, was unheard of. Much in the same way that children just accept that the Internet has always been there, the next generation of consumers will not be 'blockchain immigrants' as the technology will be widespread and commonplace for them.

It's just over 10 years since Nakamoto's revolutionary vision removed the need to trust banks by introducing a permanent, immutable record stored and verified on the blockchain. Since then 'altcoins' such as DRG have flourished, and the Ethereum blockchain has grown in popularity offering potentially limitless applications not just for payments but also in diverse sectors such as healthcare, utilities, and logistics. If bullish reports such as the one produced by advisory firm Satsis Group predicting the cryptocurrency market to be worth $1 trillion in the next 2 years are to be believed, then the use cases are also on an exponential flight path.

The Dragon team are proud of their relentless pursuit of making paying with digital currencies more accessible and more straightforward to consumers. This will, in turn, apply more pressure on merchants to begin accepting them. Dragon aims to make buying, selling and making payments with digital currencies as straightforward as possible for both B2B and B2C markets. Research suggests that if the number of merchants accepting digital currency payments increases from 6% to 15%, it would mean a massive growth of 250%.  Companies like PayPal have paved the way but now Dragon are getting set to evolve the industry.

The feature-packed Dragon Social Wallet, which is free to download now, offers a convenient way to enter the world of digital asset trading. With its soon to be unlocked chat functionally with end to end encryption, peer to peer payments become extremely easy to make. Communities of new users will be able to discuss the latest news published on the Dragon Blog. And,if they are new to digital currencies, they can dip their toe into digital trading by getting hold of some stablecoins.

As well as Dragon Coin, the world's number one entertainment coin, users can hold and trade the US Dollar Coin (USDC). USDC arguably offers the best of both worlds because they have the benefits of the blockchain ecosystem but, as they are backed by traditional assets, they're less prone to wild fluctuations in value.

Also make sure you keep an eye on the news later this month for visionary SpaceX founder Elon Musk’s update on their latest space craft called ‘Starship’ which is being designed for NASA to take astronauts back to the moon and even on to Mars.  Musk has previously said he thinks that digital currencies have the potential to become more important to society and the economy and that they offer an improved alternative to conventional money.  To that end, Musk said he believes bitcoin’s structure “is quite brilliant, and that digital currencies bypasses currency controls.”

So, if even investments don't reach 'moon' levels for the average consumer, getting hold of Dragon Coin and connecting to the Dragon Exchange is a great move to benefit from low transaction fees while having access to a fantastic range of digital currencies.
