Check Out This Ted Talk on Blockchains. It Rocks!

Earlier today my friend Morpheus texted me with a video of a Ted Talk by Don Tapscott. Here’s what he said

I just saw an awesome Ted Talk on Bitcoin. Don Tapscott does an excellent job explaining how this technology will improve everyone’s lives! You will want to see this…

When Morpheus talks, I listen. So, I had to check out the video. I was not dissapointed – the video is great. It’s gotten over 90,000 views in a week. To clarify, it’s not just about Bitcoin – it’s about decentralization and blockchain technology in general and what it means for the fturure. This is a great video to share with all of your friends.

Love this one

I believe that this is now the next generation of the internet, and that it holds vast promise for every business and society, and for all of you individually.
