Sandra Ro Shares Her Opinion on the Blockchain
Sandra Ro, the CEO of the Global Blockchain Business Council, has many interesting things to say about the blockchain and its impact on various industries. According to her, when she thinks about the blockchain and its potential, it is all about living in a data-driven world.
Sandra Ro went on to say that winners in the data world of tomorrow would be those that create the data, those that distribute it, and those that offer the analytical tools for the data. She added that the blockchain would be the infrastructure on which everything was built.
As an example of the impact of the blockchain, Sandra talked about the food sector. She said that one of her passions was to examine how the food was generated from the farm, the source. She emphasized the fact that farmers were getting a raw deal. Sandra believes that a lot can be done with mobile, cloud, and blockchain technology. This could help put more money in the pockets of farmers while improving the quality of food.
The Current Problem
Sandra said that most blockchains today were created to conform to the needs of people rather than the vice versa. She believes that the key is to figure out the problem that needs to be solved. It should not be about fitting the blockchain first but identifying the problems.
In her travels, Sandra Ro has developed an idea of what makes each place tick and its potential. In the US, Sandra gave an example of LA and Boston as big markets on which to keep a close eye.
According to Ro, she had been to many cities, and each one had its flavor. For instance, LA would be a good place for blockchain centered on gaming, entertainment, and VR. In Boston, Sandra noted that there was a university-driven ecosystem. Besides that, they have venture-capital money. There are entrepreneurs and brain trust. This is the perfect mix to create a blockchain ecosystem. Sandra said she expected a lot to come out of Boston.
The Social Aspect Of The Blockchain
Ro has attended many conferences globally. She stresses the significance of the social aspect of the blockchain. Sandra believes that at the end of it all, the blockchain is about community. She believes that this is what has driven many people into this space.
The technology is awesome but at the end of it all, we are humans, and the blockchain offers a chance for human connectivity. It helps to facilitate the lives of humans using technology. Thus, she believes that getting the word out matters. It is crucial to meet people globally. Sandra says that wherever she goes around the world, it is always different.
