The Truth About The Promises of Blockchain

The future of blockchain is super promising. But, how many of those promises are true?

So, yes we know you are not new to this whole thing. You tread with caution. You believe carefully selected ideas and Intel because you understand people right about anything on the internet.

High five if that is a problem for you! Because, it is for us too. We are equally troubled as you are. But, we are providing you the fix for it. You have us!

So, we know that whatever you read next on the subject of blockchain could be based on so many assumptions that you can end up feeling misled and manipulated. Thus, we carefully explain each process, if and but before we break the genius idea.

Blockchain is versatile technology.

Things people thought internet would do, were not all actualized. In fact, crazier things happened. Things nobody imagined. Internet was expected to disrupt lives. It was hyped to. All tech and advancement is Pre-hyped so much that when it launches people already know what to expect and what to do.

Who thought your phone would have a camera so good that professional artists will use it for commercial work. Who thought sharing nudes would be so easy over SnapChat? Or, that you could date online, engage in sexual activity openly and freely with people we met randomly through swiping right and left, a few hours ago.

Or, that we could search absolutely anything anywhere, with no library access cards, no permissions required and no need to move an inch off of your sofa. This is clearly liberating. Perhaps, not how people imagined, maybe more, maybe less. But, liberating none the less.

The thing about liberation is that it always comes with an element of surprise. But, in Blockchain’s case people are already told to expect anything and everything. They know any bizarre thing can come out of it. This, however, does not ruin the surprise element, it only amplifies it. But, once this all begins to happen it might look bound to have happened.

But, in the charm of fancy ideas we sometimes ignore the finer detail of possibilities. They are contingent to factors. Lots of factors. Most of them need to be achieved to be able to actualize the promise that tech makes to us.

People love to believe weird claims, they seem fun, and it makes them kick their rationale to the back burner for some time.

This can cause trouble, because it means if i claim the world poverty can be eliminated through blockchain adoption, then i better be right, because it sounds fun, sounds good. You will want to believe it, for the niceness of it.

But, no. We need to think of these things more critically, so tomorrow when blockchain is more dominant, we do not feel that we were lied to. Because, at least, we at Block Publisher, are not lying to you.

So, before you get into what blockchain can do for humanity, earth, the universe and poor needy helpless kids, then first learn how it will get there, and what is needed to be done before it does.
