The blockchain revolution is coming…
And it’s going to fundamentally change how businesses operate. Make no mistake… this revolution is at least as significant as the one brought about by the internet. It will disrupt every single business on the face of the earth.
And you won’t hear much about it in the mainstream media. “Blockchain” is one of those words that has the power to confuse even the smartest investors. And the media is completely clueless about how this technology actually works.
Most journalists just can’t wrap their heads around the blockchain, bitcoin, and cryptocurrencies. For example, a journalist from a major financial news media company called me a couple of weeks ago. She’d been reading the issues of the Asia Wealth Investment Daily that I’d written about blockchain and she knew I was involved as an investor and director of a cryptocurrency company.
This journalist was absolutely clueless. But as she was making a genuine effort to understand cryptocurrencies, I spent an hour on the phone with her, walking through as much as I could in the plainest English possible (off the record). The next day she published an article, which incidentally was forwarded to me by a friend. I could see that she kind of understood what I
had been talking about – but not really.
I’ve also seen articles written in the likes of the Wall Street Journal on cryptocurrencies that were factually incorrect. This is all just a reminder that what you read in the mainstream media on cryptocurrencies should be taken with a liberal dose of salt.
