  • Grandparents who probably are not familiar with cryptocurrency, but have searched on Google, written checks, balanced their checkbooks, and transacted online through their local banks.
  • College first years who are familiar with digital cash, like Bitcoin, smartphones, and messaging apps, like Signal and WhatsApp.
  • Software engineers who have studied digital payment systems, blockchain databases, and cryptography.
