The promise and impact of blockchain. Shortly analyzed. | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
We’ve heard a lot about Bitcoin and smart contracts lately. “Blockchain” more generally has been widely hailed as a “game changing” technology: Venture capital has poured 100s of million into start-ups providing services that either directly interface a certain blockchain (e.g. wallet services) and their interplay with the rest of the world (e.g. currency exchanges, payment services), or that pursue novel applications of blockchain-based solutions.
