lockchain is a… cool… technology that’s been around for some time now. Most people have heard about it, but not that many know exactly what to do with it. And that’s not all that surprising: many blockchain projects are either poorly defined or overly technical, and the average person can’t get a good read.
This is very frustrating to me, as the technology itself has a very specific promise addressing modern organizational shortcomings. You see, there’s a scourge rampaging through business and society alike. It wreaks havoc on deals, dissolves trust, and reduces certainty. Be it business federations, social scenes, or even one’s own understanding of the world, you’ve surely run into it.
This beast has a name, and it is lack of provenance. In a nutshell, blockchain addresses this.
