Check this out... http://fortune.com/2017/05/23/blockchain-chasm-of-death-bitcoin/ ...specifically this quote I think it's a very bold claim that's incorrect! It reminds me of the late 90s and early 00s when news outlets were interviewing techs about the internet. I recall that "Yahoo can never be replaced", "MySpace will dominate social networks forever" and my favorite "WAP is present on so many (mobile) devices it's hard to imagine any other protocol replacing it". I also present a spectacular death candidate, Symbian! Why do I think that quote is so incorrect? 2 reasons: 1. The current block chain protocols are hardly "entrenched". There are a handful of real use cases currently that aren't a) FADS b) speculation, and even fewer companies making the plunge using it for real operations instead of just pilots. 2. All of the above I mention, Myspace, Yahoo, WAP, Symbian and many others were huge yes, but there was major room for improvement, or the technology in play had serious issues. Block chains are no different, they are in fact a TERRIBLE way to do most of the things they are being utilized for. As soon as Google, Facebook, 3G and Android came along, all of those mentioned died a VERY rapid and nasty death, as did many others companies and technologies when more advanced counterparts came along. Thoughts?
