Blockchain: What’s all the hype?

By this time I’m sure most of you all must have heard of the buzzword “Blockchain” and “Cryptos” and some random advice on how someone’s friend of a friend made like thousands or millions of dollars. “Crypto” or “Cryptocurrency” deserves another blog and hence I’ll leave it out of this one and introduce you to all the might and glory being brought by Blockchain.

I’m very excited about this subject only because I am currently (as of Oct 2021) pursuing a Masters program in Blockchain strategy at RMIT University in Melbourne. Its a relatively new and developing field (although been around for more than a decade) and as it touches technology, finance, economics, law and broadly several other areas, it leads me to believe that this is a technology is worth learning and applying based on viability in areas of interest.
