How the blockchain is changing money and business, Don Tapscott

What is the blockchain? If you don’t know, you should; if you do, chances are you still need some clarification on how it actually works. Don Tapscott is here to help, demystifying this world-changing, trust-building technology which, he says, represents nothing less than the second generation of the internet and holds the potential to transform money, business, government, and society.

“The technology likely to have the greatest impact on the next few decades has arrived.”, — Don Tapscott

How the blockchain will radically transform the economy, Bettina Warburg

Say hello to the decentralized economy — the blockchain is about to change everything. In this lucid explainer of the complex (and confusing) technology, Bettina Warburg describes how the blockchain will eliminate the need for centralized institutions like banks or governments to facilitate trade, evolving age-old models of commerce and finance into something far more interesting: a distributed, transparent, autonomous system for exchanging value.

“There is a new, technological institution that will fundamentally change how we exchange value, and it’s called the blockchain.” — Bettina Warburg

How supply chain transparency can help the planet, Markus Mutz

Given the option, few would choose to buy products that harm the earth — yet it’s nearly impossible to know how most consumer goods are made or where they’re sourced from. That’s about to change, says supply chain innovator Markus Mutz. He shares how he used blockchain technology to track Patagonian toothfish on their journey from ocean to dinner plate — and proved it’s possible to offer consumers a product they can trust.

“We as humans, right now, are destroying the only thing we really need to survive: our planet.” — Markus Mutz
