Those are some of the questions that blockchain builders and crypto investors are currently trying to answer. After the boom of December 2017 and the influx of money poured into coin offerings, it's clear that we are now in a distinct blockchain lull. There’s not as much press (not as much positive press, anyway.) Builders have bounced. Investors have burned... But does this signal the end of blockchain?
Some say yes, but others (think Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures, Chris Dixon of Andreessen Horowitz, Joseph Lubin of ConsenSys) argue that this is just the beginning. That we are in the very earliest stages of blockchain development, its use cases, and capabilities of the technology. That we’re now going to see the birth of true blockchain adoption and innovation.
Join us at the latest edition of our popular Focus series, where we’ve put together a panel of experts to map how blockchain development — stripped of its hype — translates into actual progress. We’ll explore the future of blockchain technology, its practical applications, and the opportunities still left to be built.
Looking for specific answers? Tweet questions to @NYUFutureLabs #FocusChain, and we’ll add them to the agenda.
See you there!
