We know that there are many crypto lovers here who are happy to discuss the best altcoins, blockchain projects, decentralization and other intriguing topics. And we also want to start some discussion rolling and even make a post out of it!
We propose you to brainstorm a little bit and come up with the ideas about the spheres for blockchain technology to expand. Banking, insurance, and financial spheres are obvious answers, but could you come up with some unexpected, or even shocking opportunity to use blockchain? The best submissions will be used in our medium blog – on top of that, we won’t forget anyone’s contribution and list the names of co-authors in the post. This way we are all truly involved in co-creation!
You should write about possible applications for blockchain technology, how you see this technology in 5 or 10 years, in which ways and in what spheres it can be used. Focus on not obvious spheres: for example, you can think about how to use blockchain in healthcare, environment, elections, or any other non-financial fields.
Please write at least 100 words to be included in our medium blog post. If you have your medium username to tag you, share it in the comments as well.
These are some inspirational quotes to go in the right direction with your thoughts. ;)
“Bitcoin is just one example of something that uses a blockchain. Cryptocurrencies are just one example of decentralized technologies. And now that the Internet is big enough and diverse enough, I think we will see different flavors of decentralized technologies and blockchains. I think decentralized networks will be the next huge wave in technology. The blockchain allows our smart devices to speak to each other better and faster.”
Melanie Swan, author of “Blockchain: Blueprint for a New Economy by Swan, Melanie (2015) Paperback”
"Blockchain solves the problem of manipulation. When I speak about it in the West, people say they trust Google, Facebook, or their banks. But the rest of the world doesn’t trust organizations and corporations that much — I mean Africa, India, the Eastern Europe, or Russia. It’s not about the places where people are really rich. Blockchain’s opportunities are the highest in the countries that haven’t reached that level yet.”
– Vitalik Buterin, inventor of Ethereum
“Blockchains for all What are these enthusiasts on about? The ‘blockchain’ technology behind bitcoin could prove to be an ingredient of an entire new world of technology, as big as the internet itself, a wave of innovation that drives the middleman out of much commerce and leaves us much more free to exchange goods and services with people all over the world without going through corporate intermediaries. It could radically decentralise society itself, getting rid of the need for banks, governments, even companies and politicians.”
– Matt Ridley, author of “The Evolution of Everything: How New Ideas Emerge”
