Blockchain History Museum Opens in Hamburg to Celebrate Distributed Ledger Technology

    Hamburg, Germany is the location for the first pop-up museum to honor blockchain technology in conjunction with Algorand platform and the World Chess Championship.

    • Although relatively young compared to other technologies, blockchain technology now has its own museum.

    The Museum of Blockchain has opened in Hamburg, Germany. The museum is not permanent, but a pop-up museum, which was launched by Algorand and World chess. The museum will be open until November 17, 2019. Those who visit the museum will be able to view blockchain history, which if one considers blockchain to relate to cryptographic beginnings, begins around 1900 BC. Visitors can also download a crypto wallet to make purchases at the museum’s store.

    The museum has been open since November 5, 2019. Algorand, one of the launch partners, is a blockchain platform based in Boston and that was founded by Silvio Micali. His company is the official blockchain partner of World Chess Championship. The initiative is designed to educate communities concerning blockchain technology, its roots, and its future.

    Not only does blockchain technology have its own temporary museum, but the technology is being used in museums. In a recent report by MuseumNext, the question of what blockchain technology means for art museums arose. According to the report, blockchain technology can be used to track digital art, and it can be used to enforce smart contracts concerning art.

    More significantly, the technology can also be used to enhance the visitor experience. David Dehaeck, the founder of Wudner Art, shared  the report that it can permit a decentralized distribution for new media art forms, including moving and still images. It can also revice old art concepts and ultimately make a difference in the overall user experience.

    Overall, those who are interested in visiting the Museum of Blockchain should do so while they can. Who knows though, maybe other projects such as this one will appear elsewhere and at other times as well.
