    Reality of Blockchain - when disappointment should not become discouragement

    Blockchain technology is set to revolutionise digital transactions in the same way that the internet democratised the sharing of digital information. New blockchain companies, consortia and collaborations are announced every day – particularly within the finance industry. But equally we hear a lot of discussions about how disappointed and discouraged companies are. Mostly this can be contributed to poor education, lack of skills and understanding in teams. We need to collaborate and expand our views on how can we create projects in Open Source community.
