Imagine that selling your house would be as easy as sending an email, big chance you would not believe that this will become reality in the near future. But blockchain makes is possible, at least technically. For a blockchain it doesn’t matter what is brings form sender to receiver: an email, a house ownership certificate or a crypto currency.
But a disruptive technology doesn’t work without awareness of a new context (from physical to digital), an aligned organization model and problem to solve. The steam engine was not invented at the beginning of the Industrial Age, but during the Roman period, but that moment there we no real problems to solve with the technology. Technology alone will not but sufficient to solve social problems such as low productivity growth, privacy, power of big tech companies, fakework and fakenews. So not the hype around crypto’s and ICO’s will help us but context and a deep understanding of new technologies and organization models can help people and organizations benefit from it.
