Blockchain, Crypto Curencies & New Era

“Trust” is the key word. How we interpret the meaning of trust will change drastically. Two parties, either for the transfer of funds or for trading or for transactions of goods need an intermediary which will create a trustful medium. What if the need for these intermediaries ceases to exist? Any idea how quick, how easy and how efficient the results will be? This is the Blockchain Technology.   Having blockchain technology will also create use cases for crypto currencies. In the very near future we will say “It was an old tradition that fiat currencies must be printed and put into circulation by the Central Banks”. The banknotes of a country must be printed by the Central Banks. That’s true. But, do we have to use only those banknotes? The answer is no. And the crypto currencies are the answer to “how”.
