There are negatives right now for sure, but consider Lightning Network that changes slow and expensive to fast and cheap. Energy consumption right now is a concern. But in comparison to the entire financial infrastructure it is much smaller — I never hear talk on how we should get rid of banks and the stock exchanges in order to reduce energy consumption.

Bitcoin, can and has changed — I for one think there will be some change away from POW to POS (or something). And that is a tech change in my opinion, advanced change in that it is done by consensus on the development side.

Technologically advanced in that it can change, mutate, become something better — it’s not static. It’s changing the way we consider and think about what currency even is.
