Moving along

While Cryptocoin enthusiasts are having a difficult time for a while already, the technology behind is moving along unstoppable, not just nicely.

For some eye-opening insight and outlook, George Gilders latest book Life after Google is a great read. It appears to confirm the fact that even the biggest tech firms will be overrun sooner or later. Overrun by people thinking out of the box again, developing new technologies and making it a business from the beginning, finding adequate means to fund it, not the old-fashioned VC way.

There goes the centralized web and the centralized funding, once grown up together. Everything has its time.

Ironically this new tech movement is taking up pace right at the time when the old gatekeepers begin to abuse their power openly and evily. Nice coincidence.

What an environment has been created over time to oust a genius like Brendan Eich as Mozilla CEO for giving $1,000 for a case they find wrong? And this is just one example.

For a guy like me, grown up in East Germany, such Social Warrior movement is like going back in a time machine, but worse.

However, nobody and nothing is useless, can still serve as a bad example.

We live in exciting times.

As the Internet from the beginning has made millionaires and billionaires, and still is, same thing is happening in a new domain right now: bitcoin.

Coming from roughly $800 in January 2017, the famous cryptocurrency posterchild’s share price did exceed $5,800 on October 15.

And while there are very contrary opinions about the future share price development, there is no doubt about the underlying blockchain technology.

Start-ups, IT heavyweights, banks and other financial institutions, logistics companies, consulting firms, governments and regulators are eager to check the opportunities it may offer.

New and disruptive business models, coming with reduced transaction costs and increased security are the promises.

A period of trial & error has begun. Concepts are developed, whitepapers written, pilots set up and tested … all that bringing progress, new ideas, corrections, contributing towards the next stage.

And as always, participating is the key to success. So the focus of this Website will be extended, covering blockchain concepts and project experiences.

Stay tuned.
