One Chain to Rule Them All?

Hacker Noon’s foundation is its’ contributors. The people building the tech industry are the ones telling the story of the tech industry. That’s what we publish. It’s a source of intel. It’s real-world applications of frameworks. It’s all kinds of crazy. It’s raining views. It’s cheesy. It’s pride. It’s awesome work. It’s big thanks to great contributors.

This collaboration — Blockchain Platforms: One Chain to rule them all?— from Lior M. Messika & Noam Levenson is our tech excerpt of the week:

“These blockchains will be the iPhones of our decentralised world — simple to use, inexpensive, and secure. And we are only at the beginning. Every month brings more advanced features, more powerful developments, more streamlined services. For now, whether or not the world is ready for blockchain, it’s clear that our platforms certainly aren’t. But with third generation blockchains in development, and the inevitable fourth, fifth, sixth generations on the horizon, that won’t remain true for long.”
