The Future of Global Trade – Vinay Gupta

At Deconomy 2018 Vinay Gupta shares his thoughts on Cryptography and Society -the past, present, and future of blockchain.

Just how long does it really take for advanced ideas such as ‘Blockchain Technology’ to find their way into the main stream of thought, language, and use? History shows us it takes roughly 40 years.

Because of this, Vinay believes that declaring “cryptography (blockchain) as a technology that will liberate humanity’s future” is still a bit pre-mature.

Regardless of how it plays out, we all know that the current systems are inadequate, and blockchain is one of the leading attempts to fix this. As such, Vinay attempts to lay out some of the opportunities for improvement that blockchain currently faces, and shares a few ideas as to how things may be improved.
