Don’t miss out on the ‘value exchange’ revolution that is set to transform industries.Technological epochs in the history of humanity reshaped our society like never before. Whether it be the Scientific Revolution of the 16th century that led to the rapid accumulation of knowledge, or the most recent Internet Revolution that transformed the exchange of information between humans- these epochs in time have radically changed how humans interact with each other, and eventually enhanced efficiencies.
With Bitcoin and Blockchain-technology making its way into the consciousness of the masses in 2017, the time is ripe for another technological revolution. This uprising began in 2008 when Satoshi Nakamoto published a white-paper that would introduce the world to the novel concept of digital currency built on the radical Blockchain tech.
As Adam Draper, one of the world’s prominent investors in Blockchain technology startups puts it,
There are very few fundamental shifts in global infrastructure that can happen in our life times. The financial infrastructure is one of them, and the Blockchain is changing the way we think about the transfer of value.
The technology behind bitcoin, Blockchain enables individuals/corporations anywhere in the world to do business without establishing trust with a third party intermediary and this basic application enables the societies to become more scalable as more and more individuals can come together and do business without any fear of loss or fraud to a third party.
Ethereum, Ripple, were just some of the products that garnered the interest of the masses. In 2018, we look forward to evolved versions of Blockchain applications that have the potential to push mankind one step forward.
