business application of blockchain beyond bitcoin and crypto currency.
The world is about to go through another paradigm shift in computing following the birth of the PC and then the Internet. Blockchain/DL enables trust where trust does not exist and will empower the world to really benefit from the Internet revolution. At the moment old business models still exist and crime/dishonesty are winning. You can't put something up on the internet and expect people not to steal or abuse it; you have to spend a fortune on middlemen just to prove your identity and that you have the money or are creditworthy to buy anything and then have to repeat it again and again; much of our profit goes on security rather than advancing the world; you can trust nothing on the internet. Blockchain has changed all that, the possibilities are endless. This is a great topic for a course.
