It's NOT about the crypto currency rollercoaster over the last few years, Enterprise Blockchain is used as the ideal foundation to re-build the awesome digital mess we have created.
Yes, we should have built the Internet with distributed ledger technology (DLT) transparency and security... but it is here now and being applied by those that understand that "Digital Transformation" is NOT just a buzzword when blockchain is used properly.
