  • Blockchain innovation appears to be building the foundation for the future of the technologically-linked economy, a future not just limited to cryptocurrencies.
  • Venture capitalists are now realizing the possibility of this as more and more money flow from venture funds into all kinds of economic opportunities for the future.
  • Investors need to realize what possibilities are opening up for them and move away from the recent focus on just the narrow range of blockchain uses like cryptocurrencies.
  • Investors must keep their eyes on what venture capital funds are doing, what private equity funds are doing, among others, to gain insight into what is coming that is worth investigating.

Finally we’re starting to parse out blockchain tech from crypto! … coders / true open source folks - who is the best blockchain tech company - not financials or biz, just technology?
Where does privacy fit in when dealing with opensource database infrastructure?

I am confused on the term used " time pace " in the development of blockchain ? This maybe a cover never used in what happened in the 1990's-2000's Dot Com Disaster.
Good piece. Personally I like how US regulators and Congress are not going China balls to wall on this and we’re letting innovation play out before putting a aggressive framework in place. China will regret their regulatory move one day
Mr. Mason, perhaps you should read tonight's WSJ where there is an article about how the Chinese are not thrilled with their digital currency.
As one commentator said it is rather Orwellian that a communist country will be able to track everyone's purchases.
