Blockchain is the ‘second generation of the internet’
Blockchain technology is changing all the time. For example we notice massive changes in bitcoin price. This digital currency went to the top of the roof recently.
The cause of this being statements and actions taken by the Chinese government. Over 95% of bitcoin trading takes place in China.
Many marketers think that the blockchain is the ‘second generation of the internet’.
According to an article published on Raconteur,
‘The first generation brought us the internet of information. The second generation, powered by blockchain, is bringing us the internet of value; a new, distributed platform that can help us reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better. But like the internet in the late-1980s and early-1990s, this is still early days.’
Examples of businesses and categories active in the blockchain include: Peer-to-peer payments (Abra, BTC Jam), internet of things (Chimera-Inc, Filament), collaborative transport (La’Zooz, Arcade City) and online gaming (Auckur, SatoshiDice).
