Blockchain Unleashed: Hello world!

Share this post:

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.
