The Promise of Blockchain
Blockchain technology offers tremendous hope and promise to drastically improve data transparency and data sharing, while also reducing central point of failure risks for corporate, government, and private entities. There is also a critical difference between blockchain technology and the cryptocurrencies, central bank digital currencies, stablecoins, bitcoin, altcoins, and NFTs that rely on it. With so much hype around crypto, prices have risen quickly. So, what are the origins and precedents of cryptocurrencies - and what comes next? With a surge in crypto prices, where are the big opportunities and risks now? These are some of the topics Jason Schenker discusses in this talk, including the regulatory, cybersecurity, taxation, and national security implications of broadly available cryptocurrencies. Jason Schenker also explores the differences between the fundamental values of blockchain and digital ledger technology assets, compared to other asset classes, technologies, and investments. This talk is based on the best-selling book by Jason Schenker, The Promise of Blockchain, which was named one of the best books of SXSW and selected for a formal SXSW book reading in 2019.
