Blockchain: Facts, Fables and Functional Applications

We should think about the blockchain as another class of  thing like the Internet, a comprehensive information technology with tiered technical levels and multiple classes of applications for any form of asset registry, inventory, and exchange, including every area of finance, economics, and money, hard assets (physical property, homes, cars) and intangible assets (votes, ideas, reputation, intention, health data, information, etc). But the blockchain concept is even more, it is a new organizing paradigm for the discovery, valuation, and transfer of all quanta (discrete units) of anything, and potentially for the coordination of all human activity at a much larger scale than has been possible before.
