Blockchain’s identity problem


As an old dog in technology marketing and research, I’ve had the opportunity to watch the emergence of many new products and categories and observe the traction (or lack thereof) that the products get in the marketplace. I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard about blockchain. I was speaking with a […]

Last month, I started hearing some chatter in blockchain tech circles (some skeptical) about Inchain, an autonomous insurance service on the Ethereum blockchain.  Its initial stated objective is to manage the risk of loss of virtual assets stored on blockchains – rather than physical assets in the “real world”. Insurance Inchain is a decentralised insurance platform that mitigates […]

Blockchains and birthdays

I have a birthday coming up.  Each year, my family tries to surprise me in some way, but it doesn’t always work.  The more people coordinating the plan, the harder it becomes to maintain the surprise – especially if one or more of the schemers aren’t the most reliable at keeping it quiet. Birthday surprises […]
