How the Blockchain is reshaping the world
The Blockchain has emerged as one of the most powerful new technologies since the advent of the commercial web back in the 90s. When looking closer, it’s a very logical next step in the digital transformation that the world is undergoing at the moment.
Until the Blockchain, we didn’t have a trusted system for handling value transactions in digital networks. The only option we had was to rely on and trust a monopolistic transactional system, run by private and centralized financial institutions and nation-states, which we learned in 2008 during the global financial meltdown has serious critical design flaws.
