Lubin Believes Blockchain Adoption Will Reach the Whole Economy
Lubin talked about blockchain technology and how it will grow in the future and reach several sectors of the economy. He said that there are not “normal” people using blockchain-related systems nowadays.
Indeed, companies have failed to be able to produce a blockchain system that englobes a large number of users around the world. However, he said that back in 1983, there were not a lot of normal people using email on a daily basis.
“In Bitcoin and currently in Ethereum, you need to have specialized hardware, burn lots of electricity waste lots of computation, to basically keep everybody in sync. [With Ethereum 2.0, in 18 months] we’ll have a blockchain system much more powerful and scalable that uses orders of magnitude less energy.”
There are many experts that believe that digital assets and blockchain technology will grow during the next years. Blockchain technology allows companies to have improved services and products and provide enhanced solutions to users.
