“What does it really mean to make blockchain mature?” was a thought that sprung to mind as I made my way down to the conference venue.
The greater the utility, the clearer its determinable and applicable value. Blockshow Asia did a really good job discussing relevant topics and covering actual blockchain use-cases. From the impact of regulations (Governments taking over Blockchain) to application of blockchain technology (Corporations tackling Blockchain), the conference covered a wide-ranging variety of flagship topics that are significant to the future of Blockchain.
An indicator of a robust ecosystem is the diversity of the elements within. As I made my way around the venue talking to the media and other projects, a common topic of discussion was the bear market that cryptocurrency seemed to be entrenched in. It wasn’t uncommon hearing terms like “HODL” or “Winter is coming” circulating around!
Despite the frigid market conditions, the mood within the conference was generally positive with a larger emphasis on developing products and solutions that would actually bring value. Indeed, accessibility and diversity are directly relational.
