We could look at the whole of all computing and internet networks so far, as being one first era of transferring simple information openly on the internet. And now this whole second era that we’re heading into now with Blockchain as one of transferring value via smart networks. So we’re starting to push more complexity through the internet pipes and modulate information for signatures and validation and confirmation and loading the information packets with value.
We’re heading into a smart network territory that’s really a whole new form of computing that allows us the longtail of economics and governance. The only remaining sectors of the economy that haven’t been completely re-engineered for the digital era are economics and governance. So blockchain being a secure value and confirmation transfer system is the core functionality that allows this.
