Bitcoin is a technological tour de force.

#4

[Blockchain] is the biggest opportunity set we can think of over the next decade or so.

#6

Bitcoin is a remarkable cryptographic achievement, and the ability to create something that is not duplicable in the digital world has enormous value.

#7

#8

Every informed person needs to know about Bitcoin because it might be one of the world’s most important developments.

Anything that can conceive of as a supply chain, blockchain can vastly improve its efficiency- it doesn’t matter if its people, numbers, data, money.

What did we learn?

Blockchain is awesome technology. “It’s a mathematical framework that is free of politics and human error”, as Tyler Winkelvoss states. And Eric Schmidt calls Bitcoin a “remarkable cryptographic achievement”. Leon Louw adds that Bitcoin might be one of the worlds most important developments.

Blockchain technology does not often stand by itself but is usually mentioned in conjunction with crypto currencies. Tyler Winkelvoss mentions that they invest their money in Bitcoin, but David Marcus sees Bitcoin as an investment instrument as well. Julian Assange also refers primarily to the value of Bitcoin as he mentions that Bitcoin is currently taking off. Finally, Peter Thiel adds that Bitcoin was successful at the level of a new currency.

Blockchain has disruptive power. Ginni Rometty mentions that Blockchain can vastly improve the efficiency of a supply chain. The co-founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, is even more explicit: Blockchain will make middlemen obsolete and therefore replace companies like, e.g. Uber.

Blockchain still has a long way to go. Especially when we look at Peter Thiel’s statement that Bitcoin is still very difficult to use, it becomes apparent. On the one hand, this shows that Bitcoin is anything but perfect. On the other hand, it also shows that, despite the recent hype, there is still a lot of room for improvement. We can remain curious to see in which areas the blockchain will become more relevant in the long term.
