New updated version September 2018
Blockchain technology is a foundational disruptive electronic force that came to fruition and was birthed during the global economic crisis of 2008/2009. Blockchain’s first breath was taken on January 3, 2009 with the generation of the aptly named Genesis Block.
There is vast potential for blockchain technology to set the stage for a global upheaval in existing business models and processes. The underlying concepts are so radical that it is difficult to know what will happen in the years to come. Perhaps it is enough to know that something very big has arrived and is growing quickly.
