"Investors are not the story about blockchain, the engineers are"

This is our favorite article on blockchain technology and it's steady application across industries. Many times, investors confuse blockchain technology only with cryptocurrencies and for a quick turn on investment. They also demand quick turn around on the technology and the service. We are in the midst of a building a symphony, and it does not happen over night. And rightly so. If you look under the hood of what the engineers are working on in Blockchain the future looks very very bright. Let the people work, let them focus, and let them flourish. 

"  Investors are not the story about blockchain, the engineers are. " 

However, it would be an enormous mistake to focus on the investor arc and not center our attention on the hacker arc. Investors are not the story about blockchain, the engineers are. Engineers are going to keep playing with this technology, and they are the ones who will eventually discover the “killer apps” that ultimately drive the value here. That might happen this year, or it might happen a decade from now. Or longer.

The potential of a disruptive technology like blockchain will take decades to fully understand. You don’t have to be a True Believer to participate in that progress, but you do need insatiable curiosity and an eye on the frontier.
