What the Internet did for information,

Blockchain is doing for money with

the Internet of value exchange.

Blockchain, the technology behind Bitcoin, enables new forms of distributed software architecture to be developed where networks of unknown and potentially untrusted participants can establish agreements on shared states for decentralised and transactional data without the need of a central point of control or authority. From an ICT perspective, blockchain is a technology that allows to record ownership of on(off)-chain  assets and rights (obligations) arising from (smart) agreements. From an Institutional economics perspective, blockchain allows to design and establish new forms of decentralised governance structure for coordinating people and making economic transactions.

Blockchain owns the necessary preconditions to become more disruptive than the Internet. It is set to fundamentally transform our global socio-economic system. Allowing anonymous partners to transact securely without the need for a third party or central authority, the technology provides a basis for incorruptible, transparent records of transactions – from payments, to contracts, to voting, to medical information. In the short term Blockchain is projected to reap $110bn in cost saving for the financial industry by 2020, whilst in future it promises to establish unilateral pan-global access to legal and financial services, by fostering the creation of peer-to-peer economies.
