This Could Be Bitcoin’s “Mainstream Moment”

by Greg Wilson, Casey Research:
On August 9, 1995, the internet had its “mainstream moment.”

That’s when Netscape held its initial public offering (IPO) and released its web browser, Netscape Navigator, to the world.

At that point, the internet had already been around for 15 years.

Yet despite being one of the greatest inventions in history, the world was slow to adopt it. In 1995, only 0.3{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the world’s population used the internet.

The internet needed a catalyst. And looking back, it was Netscape.

The numbers back it up.
