Right now, "blockchain" is a hammer and everything that looks like a nail is getting hit, which is mostly breaking things and not producing anything useful. Nobody really knows what a blockchain is, and it's being defined in such a ridiculously broad way. "Blockchain" is ultimately a meaningless word. Trust, transparency, and immutability are not properties of the blockchain; they are properties of a system that combines a blockchain, an open consensus mechanism with a proof-of-work investment in extrinsic energy, and a native asset that creates a game-theoretical reward system.

    There is growing recognition of the revolutionary potential of the blockchain technology, which first saw the light of day as the software underpinning bitcoin. The Economist has run a cover story describing its “distributed ledger”, which potentially renders all sorts of intermediaries redundant as the “great trust engine.” Yet even as there has been a surge in startups looking to build businesses using the bitcoin blockchain, there has been growing concern about the strength and efficiency of that blockchain, and various attempts to design alternative blockchains that are not connected to bitcoin.

    Satoshi Nakamoto solved the trusted third party problem and set off the fintech revolution that has already spawned thousands of startups and more than a hundred exchanges. Trading in bitcoin is frictionless, cheap and global. Despite these advantages, most of the trading volume is still in the legacy markets because crypto-exchanges are inherently risky. Security breaches, speculation with customer funds and exchange failure for any number of reasons are still a possibility. Many cryptocurrency exchanges are not very transparent and their actual operations are of uncertain veracity. The internet did not have much commerce until the ability to securely accept credit cards online in the mid-90s caused runaway growth of e-commerce.

Keywords/phrases: What should NOT go on a blockchain? 80% of what people are saying should be implemented on "blockchain." Right now, "blockchain" is a hammer and everything that looks like a nail is getting hit, which is mostly breaking things and not producing anything useful. Nobody really knows what a blockchain is, and it's being defined in such a ridiculously broad way. "Blockchain" is ultimately a meaningless word. Trust, transparency, and immutability are not properties of the blockchain; they are properties of a system that combines a blockchain, an open consensus mechanism with a proof-of-work investment in extrinsic energy, and a native asset that creates a game-theoretical reward system. They all work in conjunction to massively increase the decentralisation of the system until its decentralisation range is so high that immutability, security, transparency, and openness emerge as characteristics. You can't just say "let's do all of that without the decentralisation." If you are currently involved in a large proof-of-concept project where some consultant is selling you the abstract noun "blockchain," and they're telling you that the system you have now can be replaced with all these magical characteristics, take the word "blockchain" from the proposal and replace it with "Microsoft Sequel Server, Data Center Edition." If the proposal still works from an IT perspective, buy that instead. If you're using "blockchain" to mean "database," plus some hashes and signatures, you are missing the point. The magic of this technology is the decentralisation, and to remove that is to remove the magic; that is the measure for success from which all the interesting characteristics emerge from.

Bitcoin in five minutes: Blockchain technology will drastically change our lives. In the coming years, the technology behind crypto currencies such as Bitcoin will inevitably and radically change the role of traditional trusted parties such as banks, accountants, notaries, and governments. The animated video about Bitcoin that was released today on http://bitcoinproperly.org is the first to specifically address the technology behind Bitcoin: the Blockchain. Within five minutes, it is explained how the essential functions of the “trusted third party” can be automatized through the Blockchain as well as what the implications of this are. From Bitcoin hype to Blockchain revolution: an internet of trust. With the arrival of crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, everyone around the world can trade with each other without any involvement from traditional third parties such as banks, notaries, accountants, and governments. Trade is a fundamental pillar of our economy and society, and traditional trusted parties play a crucial role in this. The technology behind Bitcoin making all this possible – the Blockchain – ensures that the essential functions of the “trusted third party’, are fully automatized through the internet. This way, these functions are as freely available, accessible, and programmable as the internet itself. The animated video, available in both Dutch and English, explains how this works, also mentioning practical applications. The implications are clear: in the coming years, the role of the traditional trusted parties will inevitably and drastically change, strongly impacting our daily lives. The creators of this animated video invite its viewers to think about and discuss the fundamental and radical innovations made possible by crypto currencies. Rutger van Zuidam ecommerce entrepreneur and founder of IntoBitcoin.com: “The Netherlands have all the assets to become Europe’s Silicon Valley of financial technology. It is possible for the Netherlands to position itself favourably in comparison to the US and UK, who are currently still ahead. The technology behind crypto currencies like Bitcoin plays an essential role in leveraging these opportunities. We hope that the animated video about the technology behind crypto currencies will positively affect this development.” Lykle de Vries: ”Bitcoin is not the new money for internet,but it is the new internet for money, value and ownership in all forms. Crypto currencies like Bitcoin are the next step in the emancipation of all world citizens, and can help create a new dynamic for democracy, society and economy.” About the creators The animated video is a non-profit initiative by designers Patrick Loonstra (www.patrickloonstra.nl) and Sebas van den Brink (sebasvandenbrink.nl) and entrepreneurs Lykle de Vries (ThesisOne.com) and Rutger van Zuidam (Senanga.net, IntoBitcoin.com).

Which blockchain, if any, will come out on top? Will partnership strategies play a big part in determining this? Will partnerships actually increase the spread and size of the benefits generated by adopting blockchain technology? Will billions of dollars of revenues currently generated through financial intermediation be wiped out by more efficient blockchain technology, benefiting consumers? And which types of intermediation are most at risk of creative destruction? Or will partnerships and/or acquisitions allow incumbents to become more efficient and profitable while protecting their traditional intermediary functions?

What is the Blockchain? This 2 minute video explains it in a very easy way. As usual, please leave you questions and ideas in the comments. with love your MinuteVideos Team Video Script: Scene 1 Blockchain is a Peer to Peer software technology that protects the integrity of a digital piece of information. It was invented to create the alternative currency Bitcoin but may be used for other cryptocurrencies, online signature services, voting systems and many other applications. In this video we explain how it works and what makes it special. Scene 2 Everyone uses paper money. When you get a 10 dollar bill you trust that it's not fake. If instead someone sent you an email saying "here's 10 dollars" you probably wouldn’t trust it. But when we "transfer money", use an ATM or pay with a deposit card that's pretty much exactly what we do. We're sending money in a digital message. Scene 3 To make sure no one's cheating or sending money they don't have, these “messages” go through a few trusted banks that keep a record of everything. They know how much money everyone has and deduct it properly for every transaction. Scene 4 But this becomes expensive when there’s a million transactions around the world every minute. The Economist estimates that banks charged us more than 1.7 trillion dollars to process these payments in 2014. That’s about 2% of the entire world economy! With blockchain we can save a lot of this cost because it lets us send money just like sending an email. Scene 5 Instead of sending a lot of payment information through a few servers, blockchain uses thousands of personal computers on the internet. All transactions are copied and cross checked between every computer in a system wide accounting book called the ledger, which becomes very safe at scale. Scene 6 Blockchain doesn’t just allow us to create safe money online, it lets us protect any piece of digital information. This could be online Identity cards, voter ballots, contracts and many other “legal instruments”, bringing bureaucracy into the 21st century.

Satoshi Nakamoto solved the trusted third party problem and set off the fintech revolution that has already spawned thousands of startups and more than a hundred exchanges. Trading in bitcoin is frictionless, cheap and global. Despite these advantages, most of the trading volume is still in the legacy markets because crypto-exchanges are inherently risky. Security breaches, speculation with customer funds and exchange failure for any number of reasons are still a possibility. Many cryptocurrency exchanges are not very transparent and their actual operations are of uncertain veracity. The internet did not have much commerce until the ability to securely accept credit cards online in the mid-90s caused runaway growth of e-commerce. Solving the trust problem will similarly cause the 1 quadrillion derivatives market to grow rapidly in the cryptocurrency space and eclipse the legacy market. The removal of need to trust anything except cryptography makes a system trustless. coinpit.io is a blockchain based exchange that by its very design is trustless, transparent and private. Using the the same mathematically strong cryptography in bitcoin, your funds are held more securely than legacy financial systems. Your funds cannot be stolen, lent out, embezzled, bailed in or in anyway moved -- unless you do it. No transactions can take place outside your control and your bitcoins can be recovered even if the exchange disappears without a trace. Simply post your recovery transaction on the bitcoin blockchain and your funds will be sent to the address controlled by your private key. coinpit.io is also the most transparent exchange. Transactions and settlements on your account are stored in bitcoin's immutable blockchain providing absolute transparency. coinpit.io is also the most pro-privacy exchange. Privacy and security go hand-in-hand. When privacy is weakened, so is security and vice-versa. Instead of your email address and other personal details, we enable access and trade using a unique loginless technology. Instead of KYC, we prevent money-laundering using a graph-theoretic preventive AML model. Placing identity, account and settlements on the blockchain gives us privacy, security and transparency coinpit.io is ... the blockchain exchange
