Abstract

We have seen the diverse perspectives and trends influencing the future rise or fall of this powerfully emerging database. It is evident that blockchain represents the start of a new digital era and technological turning point. This “internet of value” has opened up a new world of possibilities through a peer-to-peer platform that enables personal economic empowerment, financial reporting accuracy and information sharing freedom. Only time will tell whether this electronic ledger will truly gain momentum.

Keywords: Blockchain, Smart Contracts, Internet of Value, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Fintech
