People get so hyped over development in BTC space they fail to even comprehend the fundamental changes to society that are happening.
One example: Bitcoin is the first opt-in currency that cannot be inflated/printed into nothingness.
The network of full nodes only recognizes a certain ruleset for Bitcoin blocks, one of them being the coinbase. This coinbase (currently 12.5BTC) is the reward for miners that add transactions to the blockchain. This coinbase halves over time, until ~21M BTC.
