Here’s why decentralization is inevitable…

…and how not to miss the bus? If you are anyone like me, you might have had a lot of people talking about blockchain and decentralization in the year 2017, but as we made progress through the year 2018, all of them went silent one by one. The prices kept going down, and so did the voice of several advocates. Relatable? And as the silence grew, you started thinking, blockchain is dead! On top of that, there were frequent announcements from various countries who were taking a negative stance, and there were…

How to tell a story in the blockchain world?

See where the caveman has arrived since those cave paintings. What makes human beings different from the rest of the animal species? Of course, the evolved language could be one reason, but the right reason is how we use the language. While a monkey can signal other monkeys about a lion lurking in the grass, it’s only human beings who can tell a story of a creature that is half human and half lion. While other animals can live in a pack of tens and hundreds, humans can live in a…

Every company will use blockchain by 2027

here’s how. Almost a decade ago, Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, silently disrupted trust-providing organizations, like banks, with an eight-page long research paper describing how money can be decentralized (through Bitcoin). At the time, not many people understood the potential that those eight pages concealed within themselves. No, I am not talking about decentralizing money. I am referring to the decentralization itself. In those eight pages, Nakamoto didn’t just explain how we can regain control over our money — he offered a new way for strangers to safely collaborate with each other. You might have…

WTF is Ethereum?

The ultimate guide to understand why Ethereum is not just another cryptocurrency.

The only thing Ethereum shares with Bitcoin is that it’s a cryptoasset running on top of blockchain. Instead of being just a cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin, Ethereum also has features which effectively makes it a huge decentralized computer. To understand Ethereum, one must understand how blockchain works. If you already understand it, or have already read my ultimate guide to understand blockchain, feel…

WTF is… Money?

Here’s how bartering evolved into Blockchains. 13.7 billion years ago, the Big Bang brought the universe into existence. 3.8 billion years ago, life first appeared on our planet. 1.9 million years ago, Earth witnessed a hominid species, Home erectus, walking upright for the first time. And, 7,000 years ago, money was invented. But first, people bartered. Not everyone had everything. We always had something in surplus, and we always needed something that the other person had. As the common sense would have said, we started exchanging our surplus assets for what we…

WTF is The Blockchain?

The ultimate 3500-word guide in plain English to understand Blockchain. Unless you’re hiding under the rock, I am sure you’d have heard of Bitcoins and Blockchain. After all, they are the trending and media’s favorite topics these days — the buzzwords of the year. Even the people who’ve never mined a cryptocurrency or understand how it works, are talking about it. I have more non-technical friends than technical ones. They have been bugging me for weeks to explain this new buzzword to them. I guess there are thousands out there who feel the…
