Being active in Thailand with some (relatively free) time to investigate in future trends, I have decided to try to better understand the Blockchain revolution.
Last week, I was lucky to participate to Blockchain World Conference in Bangkok. I was impressed to see more than 1’000 (young) attendees (mostly males) participating to this high end cycle of lectures. It was fun to meet people from all over the world and to discuss their views on the Blockchain. I have met guys from Russia, Japan, Singapore, France and of course Switzerland (I will come back later on various Swiss initiatives in the Blockchain in another blog post). I have met investors, developers, dreamers and crazy peoples. I have discussed with a rock musician that told me he puts all its assets for years only in Bitcoin and Ethereum … I suppose he was very happy !
I was impressed by some projects, for example, a Russian initiative, Universa, which wants to make the revolution in the Blockchain, by creating a sort of Ethereum x.0 which will be quicker, cheaper and smarter… but more centralized. The ICO is open for whom is interested.
During lunch, I have exchanged ideas with a French team living in Thailand who plans to launch a new « Lego of the Blockchain » to ease access to the technology. A vast and very ambitious program.
Nevertheless, most of the projects were in a relatively early stage…: « We will do this… », « We plan to do that… », « We will simplify the system… », « We will be quicker, more secure and cheaper… », « Be informed of our future ICO… » and still need a lot of work to become mainstream.
But I take it for certain that most of this guys (and some girls) are not only talking, they will do something. Who will be successful is the 1’000’000 Bitcoins questions. The energy that came from this conference was amazing. Can I suggest to actual politician to pay much more attention to this moving world and to try to understand a bit deeper this announced tsunami (lawyers should also get more technical knowledge if they want to keep in pace).
What’s interesting is that every domain will be impacted (you can find many studies on the topic on Linkedin and Internet). It goes from social security, to car sharing, wealth management, energy, law, logistics…
Today, I would like to share with you some links and short notes that I took during the presentations. It is more a personal list of interesting projects related to Blockchain. It can be useful to someone who wants to explore the topic by browsing these projects.
Continue reading on my blog on gtconseils.com with more than 20 Blockchain concerned links to some very interesting projects.
In my next blog post, I will come with more details on some of them and new ones.
Have a nice week.
