Self-driving banks: industrial verification without industrial capex

Self-driving banks: industrial verification without industrial capex | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
Thanks to blockchains, a laptop or a mobile phone is, today, as effective at running a globally-accessible application as a datacentre or a mainframe. Furthermore, with the permissioned chains, the “mining” process can be dispensed with entirely, allowing a user to run such a network with only the latent capacity of hardware you already have (in relation to which, 99% of the time it is not being used anywhere near full capacity.

In the future, we will leverage this excess capacity to both increase the reliability and uptime of our systems, and bring the marginal costs of computing to nearly zero. This will be a world in which data infrastructure runs itself without physical infrastructure.
