That is an interesting statistic. But it misses something very profound. Effectively we are all networked now, most of us on the planet, to some extent or another for the first time in history. Metcalfe’s law states that a network has value proportional to n squared. Studies of applying this to cryptocurrency communities show that the token value reflects the community value. So effectively when you put money in the hands of a network, every single dollar is magnified proportional to n squared. Billions of people in the network of the world is a very large amplifying effect. Try doing those calculations. The numbers are crazy. No-one in this world should be poor.
