What is blockchain and why is it disruptive? It’s a clear upgrade from the internet we know today. We have smart items that are sensing, responding, sharing data and the internet of everything needs a ledger of everything. When two parties make a trade transaction, for example, both sides can be sure of what took place and the record will be stored in perpetuity. Blockchain is now mainstream and we need to uncover the mystery and eliminate misinformation.
