During this time, blockchain ecosystems that were developed demonstrate that blockchain technology not only holds the promise to disrupt and transform every industry, but it has, already, done so in ways never seen before.
The future is changing and those who can foresee the disruptive potential of blockchain technology in their life possess an important first mover advantage. Thus, understanding what Blockchain is, how it works and how and where to be used, is today’s challenge, as blockchain-based projects will be part of the most popular jobs of the future. A blockchain-based future will of course affect business decisions in ways that will be unrecognizable to today’s business professionals, entrepreneurs, public administrators, and government officials.
