We are undergoing a transition within the digital age as we move from an internet of information to an internet of value. The internet of information entails copying information and repeatedly circulating it throughout the web. However, sending copies of delicate information – such as credit card credentials, confidential documents, and monetary value – is inherently unsafe. Blockchain, a distributed database technology, has become the catalyst in moving us into a new-age internet made for the transaction of value. Poised to improve various aspects of our lives, blockchain has spurred a new wave of interest and revolutionary innovation.
