“Innovation—any new idea—by definition, will not be accepted at first. It takes repeated attempts, endless demonstrations, monotonous rehearsals before innovation can be accepted and internalized by an organization. This requires courageous patience.” —Warren Bennis
We have been talking about blockchain, cryptocurrency and their innovative applications and until now we never spoke in detail about them. Yes, we know that blockchain is a digital ledger that stores data. It seems complicated, and it can be, but believe me, its core concept is quite simple. A blockchain is a type of database. And to be able to understand blockchain, you first need to understand what a database is. On the other side, we hear many times about digital currency, cryptocurrency, regulations, CBDC. Cryptocurrency is an internet-based medium of exchange which uses cryptographical functions to conduct financial transactions. Cryptocurrencies uses or incorporates blockchain technology to gain decentralization, transparency, and immutability – the 3 core principles of cryptocurrency. I am sure now that many of you driven from curiosity and eagerness to learn, might take a step forward and ask further questions to learn more, but unfortunately on the other side, many of you might take a step back and do not even try to get to know what I am talking about, for the only reason that it sound complicated! But in the time that we live in, in the era of technology and internet, all your questions can be answered, by simply google it, and in the era of knowledgeable people, of real experts, innovation and simplicity become your best friends.
