If that is the case, the 's'-curves we see here are to make up a larger 's'-curve. Judging by the news, I'd say we are on the tail end of the 'early adopters' or very beginning of the 'early majority' phase of adtoption, and thus at the knee of an exponential growth curve, which tapers off over the next 5-10 years to a stable value (probably faster, as technology tends to follow exponential growth rather than fit our linear intuition. The pace of things always suprises people). What's even more suprising is that these are logarithmic cuves on a logarithmic scale, so truly mind-blowing growth is a possibility.
Take this for what it's worth--rough speculation, but I wouldn't risk being a 'laggard'. Especially when dealing with something that has the potential to change 'normal' to a greater degree than even the internet did.
Edit: This should say 'long' not 'neutral' but I can't figure out how to change it...
I don't own a single Bitcoin right now. But that's because I'm watching the market and waiting.
Here is some info on companies trying to do just that - implement the application. It takes time. And Canada seems to be getting the ball rolling faster.
Unitely is just one of them.
Don't forget to check out all the other companies on the crytpostock website. Who knows 3 to 4 years from now we might be charting company stocks per BTC.
