Blockchain Trilogy - Parts I, 2 & 3 + Easter Egg - By TrendFollower

Recommended Posts

This article touches on security tokens. I have mentioned this in other posts and some of you may remember my references to 'Token Economy', 'Tokenisation' and 'Tokenomics'. If one opens their mind then one may begin to appreciate the strong possibility of this which could be coming towards a future very soon.

@cryptotrader,

I assume you mean 'Proof of Work' when you state POW?

The World Economic Forum have no vested interest as far as I am aware trying to promote Blockchain.

The World Trade Organisation (WTO) are making some interesting predications and yes that is all they are predictions which should not necessarily mean they will come true but the article presents them below.

Blockchain will add US$3tn to international trade by 2030, predicts WTO

I have commented on other threads about the 'Token Economy', 'Tokenomics' and 'Tokenisation'. The article below is happening.

I think Blockchain is still gaining traction regardless of the 'noise' surrounding the price action of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies. They are just merely behaving in major correction mode. This has happened several times before since inception. It is nothing new but Blockchain is continuing to progress. I accept the adoption is slow but large corporations are seriously looking to apply Blockchain technologies to their businesses. 

Time will tell but based on the reading and research I have conducted in this area I am confident that Blockchain is here to stay and is the coming future. There will be many areas where it is not needed and therefore not applied but for auditing purposes, supply chain purposes and transaction purposes it is already starting to gain momentum.

I wanted to share something rather positive in my personal opinion in relation to Blockchain with the IG Community. 

This was announced a couple of days ago to the market and media but could be just the beginning.

Invesco blockchain ETF to launch on London Stock Exchange

There are other Blockchain ETF's available around the world so this is not the first one by any means. Invesco is a heavyweight and listing on the London Stock Exchange adds to the credibility.

A lot of you will be aware that I am both very interested in the Blockchain sector and I also invest in it. 

I though this survey from PwC may be of interest to some of you who also have the same appreciation of the technology as I do. However, I think it may also be interesting to those who have serious reservations and doubts about the technology. 

Blockchain is here. What’s your next move?

As I am from the UK, this article which I came across today but was released yesterday is rather interesting. It is also encouraging that the UK Parliament are taking looking into Blockchain applications seriously.
