Blockchain technology has been around for some time now. Up till now, it has been used in startups and cryptocurrencies and adopted by many big companies. Besides that, it has differentiated people as well. While some find innovation and security in it, others criticize it for having limited use cases. Previously, Bitcoin (BTC) enthusiast, Rene Pickhardt, who is also a member of Wikimedia Deutschland, Serlo Education and Verdi, elaborated a criterion for determining if blockchain was really an answer to a problem.
Rene suggested that startups or companies wishing to be a tech startup should understand the tech in the first place. While extending the conversation, Rene was asked for suggestions for people interested to understand and learn tech, especially blockchain. Talking to BlockPublisher, he advised:
As with learning anything else, be eager and honest to yourself while learning. Everyone has a different set of preferred study materials and background. There is no one-stop shop.
Rene is data science, data analytics and machine learning consultant in Koblenz. He is a well-learned person. He claims to have a history of more than 15 years with programming and IT. His experience shows that his words do hold immense value. As said by many and even pointed out by Rene himself, learning is a journey, rather a one-stop shop.
Understanding the technology, before applying it, is a prerequisite for attaining efficiency in the overall process. For understanding it deeply, the process of learning becomes an important aspect to gain success in projects with the technology at hand. Like all other technologies, blockchain has a similar case i.e learning it honestly and understanding it completely beforehand would be beneficial and worthwhile for the startup or company using it.
