What is the blockchain? If you don’t know, you should; if you do, chances are you still need some clarification on how it actually works. Don Tapscott is here to help, demystifying this world-changing, trust-building technology which, he says, represents nothing less than the second generation of the internet and holds the potential to transform money, business, government and society.

My money in a bank is FDIC secure. My bank account is secure from theft. My identity is secure from being hacked and money stolen. I don't have to worry about losing all my money if I forget my bank account. I don't have to worry about someone killing me for my private keys. I don't have to worry about my bankexchange from being hacked. I don't have to worry about my wallet being hacked. I don't have to pay a premium of 2% to buy cash. I don't have to worry about buy a product with the dollar if the merchant is a scam artist. I don't have to worry about being databases in the chain forever for illegal activities that I have committed. I don't have to covert $5200 of my hard earned money for one Bitcoin plus exchange fees of $78. Bitcoin is a great idea and the blockchain will take over every thing. Just not now. It is a long way away. Right now it is all billionaire whales and criminals crewing others over through a huge pyramid scheme. Early adopters are raping those that buy in later!

The blockchain – and how it is used, in particular, by $UND and their team, has got me more than impressed and excited. We are talking about game-changing features, with a lot of enterprises circling around their product.

Luca Bellini says:

Very very well speech. I also read his book Blockchain Revolution. But he talks about everything and not a speific use case. So if you have never heard of blockchain before.. this could be a perfect start. But if youre looking for technical explination this is not useful
