Good blockchains are here to change the world, from digital cash to all sorts of new people-focused digital services.
We’ve suddenly found ourselves living in an age where the tech giants control vast swathes of how our lives and societies function. Where large corporations can financially deplatform you in an instant, without recourse. Where governments are applying technology in more and more invasive and controlling ways.
Good blockchains were created to bring power back to the people, to all the citizens of our societies. They are creating powerful technologies to make a better society for all.
You’ve probably heard plenty of bad things about crypto and blockchains. There are many that are bad. But this technology is still here and has become the behemoth it is today because amongst them are the good blockchains. The ones that this whole movement was first created for. The ones that strive every day to create a fairer society for all.
Think that’s rubbish? Been told that’s rubbish? I bet I can change your mind if you give me a few moments of your time…
The mainstream narrative around crypto and blockchain so far has been one of fear, uncertainty, and doubt. It’s time for that to change.
Good blockchains provide open access, regardless of who you are, what country you live in, or what authorities have deemed is safe for you. In the blockchain world we call this “permissionless”.
Good blockchains are resilient and reliable. No one controls them. No one can cancel you or take away your assets on them. Its why they are called “decentralized”. It’s this key innovation which makes them so different to everything that has come before.
Good blockchains are simply code, computer code that is open to everyone to use. No corporations or individuals deciding what they can be used for, or who can use them.
Good blockchains have so many people excited by them because they provide a new kind of computer code that spells out exactly what can and can’t happen, for everyone to see, without malicious or profit-motivated humans in the middle secretly controlling the outcomes to their own benefit for the services you want to use.
Today, incredibly, there are still billions of people around the world who don’t have access to basic, reliable financial services. Good blockchains are also here to solve this. Bringing low-cost and fair financial services to the unbanked.
You’ve seen how email and messaging have made the postal service irrelevant.
You’ve witnessed how the web has transformed how we share information.
Blockchain is the next wave of tech innovation, where power is returned to individual people, to transact freely, with everyone.
