Distributed Ledger Technology
"This whole thing was brought about and pioneered by Bitcoin marking.
the convergence of a host of technologies, including timestamping of transactions, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks, cryptography, and shared computational power, along with a new consensus algorithm.
But in the same way as the first ever aeroplane could never be used as a main stream commercial jet, neither can Bitcoin be used as a main stream currency (albeit a critical conceptual breakthrough!)".
Pauls main focus is currently Hyperledger ... collaborating with IBM, HyperLedger is a multi-project open source collaborative effort hosted by The Linux Foundation.
"Distributed Ledger Technology will literally change the way we think about how our world works ... it will drastically change our financial & industrial systems and add new improved structure to the internet".
