This talk will compare evolution in nature (based on Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection), with similar processes happening in money, especially in the current iteration of money (cryptocurrencies), and the underlying BlockChain technology. The session will review the history and evolution of money up to this point, shortly explain Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, compare the similarities between evolution by natural selection in nature with evolution in BlockChain technology and cryptocurrencies, and will examine the potential paths for the BlockChain technology and cryptocurrencies to evolve in the future. The session will ask and facilitate the participants to come up with their own theory and practical example of blockchain of the future following Darwin's theory of evolution.
