Welcome to Commercializing Blockchain: Strategic Applications in the Real World. I have been part of the Blockchain world since 2016 and I have been obsessed with this exciting new world ever since.

Imagine a world where the data that we produce on a daily, if not hourly, basis is “owned” by us – it is our data and we choose what it is used for and where it is transferred……..

Imagine a world where you can “scan” my shirt and it will tell you the cotton plant it started from, the cotton mill the cotton was spun, the shirt factory where it was sewn together and the journey it took to my wardrobe……

Imagine a world where you “scan” the bottle of Champagne, and it shows a beautiful video of where the grapes were picked, how they were harvested, how the champagne was fermented and how the bottle was rested over its lifetime……

Imagine buying your forever home and being able to fully track all the previous owners, the changes made and the records of all alterations made during its hundred year life……

Imagine no more – these are all real possibilities for Blockchain technology to fundamentally transform our lives.

This ground breaking technology, will allow us to own more of our data, see more transparently than ever before and trust more in our governments and businesses.

We are at the beginning of the next revolution, where Blockchain technology will lead the world into new and exciting opportunities, with the key values baked into the heart of the Blockchain technology: Trust and Transparency

We will be able to “own our own data” and see where our data is being used transparently. We will have visibility on our digital footprint and ensure that the truth is seen and facts are never deleted.

I am a passionate “blockchainer” and I understand how Blockchain technology will transform our lives over the next twenty years. We are only at the beginning of the revolution – maybe at 0.8 or 0.9, at the moment, but we will move quickly to 1.0 and beyond.

The technology is ready, the people and process are the stumbling blocks and these are where the world needs to focus – changes are difficult for humans and we need to be open to this new technology, which will give us more trust and transparency in the world around us.

In this book, I cover how I believe Blockchain technology will revolutionalize all our lives through moving forward our tired and complex systems, to quicker and more efficient systems, simultaneously allowing us to establish a level of trust and transparency that has been lost in the current world.

There is an exciting world ahead powered by Blockchain technology and your journey begins here with my book

Please enjoy the ride (and my book) and please feel free to interact with me in the digital world @AntonyWelfare

Many thanks and best wishes to you all
