Message from the Editor
Blockchain technology has the potential to change the way we register all kinds of transactions, e.g. from selling various financial and non-financial assets.
Offering a decentral, and thus more resilient, way of handling registries (e.g. for securities) and ledgers Blockchain is expected to be faster and cheaper to maintain than other decentralized data storage solutions offering a protection against manipulation.
Having understood the potential of this technology we are sure of its great future and want to be among the first who objectively observe and analyze its very dynamic development and capture the essence.
By publishing a Blockchain dedicated daily newsletter we come in support of the army of “financial eyes” already focusing on this sector.
