  • Image copyright Thinkstock Image caption The government says it will not use the app to keep a record of who spent what
  • It seems there is also concern in Whitehall about the process by which this trial came to be approved.
  • One recently departed member of the Government Digital Service told me of his amazement that this trial was being allowed to go ahead.
  • But the worry now is that if the first trials go down the wrong path, then public trust in the technology could be irredeemably damaged.

Blockchain: the answer to life, the universe and everything?

  • There are many blockchains, as companies are born with different needs from a distributed ledger than those of Bitcoin.
  • The company has gone through some changes since it was launched in 2013 , and the blockchain now forms a core part of its offering.
  • Bitcoin is starting to look less important than the engine that drives it – the blockchain.
  • The blockchain was developed as a means of creating digital property without the need for a central authority keeping track of who owns what.
  • Bitcoin was the first technology to use the blockchain, but the currency is now starting to look a bit like the steam pumping engines invented in the 17th century.

Bitcoin Or Ethereum: Which Will Dominate?

#bitcoin Or #ethereum: Which Will Dominate? #bitcoin,ethereum,money

  • It’s entirely likely that in 5 years or less, today’s use cases for the blockchain will seem absolutely primitive to us.
  • Bitcoin does not appear to be used for much .
  • As I demonstrate in today’s video below, Bitcoin is primarily a state transition ledger : it makes use of a decentralized blockchain to record the movement of coins on its network, going all the way back to the first transactions when the currency was launched back in January 2009.
  • Bitcoin and Ethereum both use a blockchain, a globally distributed ledger that stores all of the prior transactions, going all the way back to the currency’s very first transactions or “genesis block.”
  • I did a video sharing some of the amazing use cases for Ethereum that enterprising Ether fans have already showed off: one couple put their marriage and a charming photo on the blockchain.
