Today we have a quick chat about technology and in particular Blockchain.
Yes, Blockchain has been around for a few years now but we’re really seeing more and more of it in the news lately, and there has been a lot of hype about the potential applications of this technology.
Some people have even said the Blockchain will have a greater impact on our lives than ANY other technology that exists today.
How big is that?
Much of the hype around Blockchain has been focused on the financial industry, or the potential for Blockchain to fundamentally change the financial services industry.
Which got me thinking..
... How could this impact us in the future, both as traders and as fine, upstanding members of society? :-)
Anyway, my own personal knowledge of Blockchain was pretty limited - even though I’d heard of it a number of times I didn’t really have an idea of what it was.
But I do remember that Bert Mouler mentioned it episode 64 of the podcast where we were discussing cryptocurrencies.
So I asked Bert to come back on the show and give us a very quick introduction into Blockchain:
So let’s head over to Bert and hear what the fuss is all about!
