Perhaps one of the best terms coined by internet “addicts” that never truly took off was “outernet” – a term for the real world, outside of the internet. And while cryptocurrency and blockchain are certainly gaining traction on the internet, seeing them mentioned (and endorsed!) in the real world – the outernet, if you will – makes it all the more palpable.

From travel agencies, over supermarkets, to the UFC (the Ultimate Fighting Championship) – crypto is now more accepted than ever, and adoption is only growing.
