Imran Bashir on the Fundamentals of Blockchain, its Myths, and an Ideal Path for Beginners
With the invention of Bitcoin in 2008, the world was introduced to a new concept, Blockchain, which revolutionized the whole of society. It was something that promised to have an impact upon every industry. This new concept is the underlying technology that underpins Bitcoin.
Blockchain technology is the backbone of cryptocurrencies, and it has applications in finance, government, media, and many other industries.
Some describe blockchain as a revolution, whereas another school of thought believes that it is going to be more evolutionary, and it will take many years before any practical benefits of blockchain reach fruition. This thinking is correct to some extent, but, in Imran Bashir’s opinion, the revolution has already begun. It is a technology that has an impact on current technologies too and possesses the ability to change them at a fundamental level.
Let’s hear from Imran on fundamentals of blockchain technology, its myths and his recent book, Mastering Blockchain, Third Edition.
