Yes, Blockchain could reverse the course of civilization and upend the world’s most powerful companies – ZDNet

“Blockchain technology represents the second generation of the internet.”

If that sounds like a hyperbole, it wasn’t the biggest one that Alex Tapscott unleashed on the executives and managers at the Digital Business World Congress in Madrid on Wednesday.

He argued that Blockchain will disempower banks, make the energy grid far more efficient, fix the music industry, and save journalism.

And the craziest part was that his arguments came across a lot more like an entrepreneur explaining a pitch deck than a snake oil salesman peddling a crackpot theory.

Tapscott is the co-author of the book Blockchain Revolution and he gave the opening keynote on day two of DES 2017, where ZDNet and TechRepublic are media sponsors.
