Understand The Blockchain In Two Minutes?

How to understand  the Blockchain in two minutes?

Over the past decade, an alternative digital paradigm has slowly been taking shape at the edges of the internet. This new paradigm is the blockchain. After incubating through millions of Bitcoin transactions and a host of developer projects, it is now on the tips of tongues of CEOs and CTOs, startup entrepreneurs, and even governance activists. Though these stakeholders are beginning to understand the disruptive potential of blockchain technology and are experimenting with its most promising applications, few have asked a more fundamental question: What will a world driven by blockchains look like a decade from now?

Over the past decade, an alternative digital paradigm has slowly been taking shape at the edges of the internet.

This new paradigm is the blockchain. After incubating through millions of Bitcoin transactions and a host of developer projects, it is now on the tips of tongues of CEOs and CTOs, startup entrepreneurs, and even governance activists. Though these stakeholders are beginning to understand the disruptive potential of blockchain technology and are experimenting with its most promising applications, few have asked a more fundamental question: What will a world driven by blockchains look like a decade from now?

The Blockchain Futures Lab seeks to answer the question of a world driven by blockchains through foresight, prototyping, and community-based investigations into the social, economic, and political implications of this new paradigm.

The Blockchain Futures Lab at IFTF is a research initiative and a community for identifying the opportunities and limits of blockchain technologies as well as their social, economic, and political impacts on individuals, organizations, and communities over the coming decades. The program brings together the leading developers of blockchain tools and applications with organizations that seek to understand the implications of this highly disruptive technology—and perhaps also to create parts of the new ecosystem of infrastructures and markets that it will drive. The program delivers:

  • Blockchain Map of the Decade
  • Set of blockchain foresight perspectives
  • Blockchain expert workshop-in-a-fishbowl
  • An immersive cross-industry forum on blockchain solutions

By focusing not just on the near-term opportunities for new products and services but also on the important long-term implications of the technology, the Blockchain Futures Lab will complement and extend the value of other blockchain initiatives.
