Today’s discussion was about distributed ledger technology (DLT), also known as blockchain and the technology behind Bitcoin. We had a balanced discussion: some people who were excited about the technology and others who were skeptical. That interplay really created one of the best conversations I’ve heard about DLT and its applications
Throughout the conversation, we tested each other and we came back to basics. We didn’t assume that blockchain was good because it was new, or that organizations like Banks or Ticket Sellers were bad. That neutrality really plays out by helping us consider how DLT can actually benefit people.
