Bitcoin came out with a boom, then ran into some trouble and tried to whimper into hiding, and now seems to be steadying itself on its legs.

People have opened 41 million Bitcoin accounts worldwide, according to the Bank of England. Parents are dispensing allowances in Bitcoin to teach their kids to be digital citizens.
More and more apps and internet companies are turning to this digital currency as a means of currency, and it begs the question: are we as companies, startups, entrepreneurs growing with the people and trends of business, or are we remaining stagnant?
