What is Blockchain?

Blockchain

If the internet we use today is the internet of information, blockchain is the internet of value that has the potential to fundamentally transform business, economy & society as we know it. Blockchain, the technology behind bitcoin, is considered by many to be the next big thing. A game changer that allows us to decentralise trust, creating the basis for a peer-to-peer economy, powered by auto enforceable smart contracts.

Smart Contracts

Transactions on the blockchain through these smart contracts are in many cases faster & cheaper and more secure than transactions that classically run through neural central authorities. These Smart Contracts are an integral part of well as dApps (Decentralized Applications) and DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations).

The Decentralized Web

Together with other decentralized protocols like IPFS & SWARM (decentralized file storage), Whisper (Decentralized Messaging), Social Linked Data and many more, Blockchain is contributing to the next generation of the internet, the decentralized web, or web 3.0.
