As the new IBM Blockchain Digital Marketing Leader, I am excited to launch our blog Blockchain Unleashed today. The spirit of the blog is to capture relevant conversations on how blockchain technology is changing our world — with the possibility of doing for transactions what the Internet did for information. It will provide news, interviews, conversations, stories and opinions from the blockchain community — inside and outside of IBM.
People and companies will share how they are tapping into the power of blockchain to transform their business networks across a variety of industries. And they will describe the opportunities and challenges they’ve encountered along the way.
Experts will also discuss blockchain FAQs and topics such as:
What is it and how has it evolved over time?
What is the difference between bitcoin and blockchain?
What is the difference between smart contracts and chaincode?
How does this technology impact transaction flows and digital distributed ledgers?
What are the pros and cons of different consensus protocols such as permissioned versus permissionless trust models?
And a lot more!
At times, we will ask you to share your ideas for blog topics and request feedback on some ideas we’re exploring.
