Blockchain researcher Bettina Warburg presents a polished overview of blockchain technology, which she illustrates with simple graphics and anchors in a narrative of economic history. However, her methodical lecture doesn’t mention any drawbacks or objections to the blockchain. That omission aside, getAbstract recommends this video to anyone interested in liberty, economic security, trade or how technology affects society.
In this summary, you will learn
- How humans developed formal and informal mechanisms to reduce uncertainty in trade,
- How the blockchain eases this uncertainty in three ways, and
- Why this technology will bring an economic revolution.
