Lunosaur

The way people use and think about money is constantly evolving.

In the age where everything arrives at your fingertips in a near-instant, everything else seems like… Well, like dinosaurs.

The existing financial system was built for a non-digital age, ignoring the needs of the modern individual and with many unnecessary inefficiencies and gatekeepers. The world now has access to new technologies like decentralised cryptocurrencies that are quickly making these old systems and ways of thinking redundant. Like communication evolving from landlines to mobile phones, or post to email, money is now finally catching up with other information evolutions.

We believe this evolution is unfolding right in front of our eyes. If you want to understand how we see it, read our article on the natural evolution of money.

The dinosaurs in your wallet

We also invite you to look at the dinosaurs in your wallet. Take them out, and feel their crinkly reptilian skins. The greeny-brown age all over them, perfect for camouflaging to pass as real value. You’re carrying around an extinct symbol of value. It’s time to evolve.

The last roar of a dying species can be painful and shrill, or fun and whimsical. Can you guess which one we prefer?
