Why Blockchain Isn’t a Revolution

On June 20, 2018, the Wharton School published an opinion piece by Kevin Werbach, Wharton professor of legal studies and business ethics, where explains the differences among the three groups that comprise this technology: cryptocurrency, blockchain and cryptoassets.

The three communities share a basic set of design principles and technological foundations, but the people, goals, and prospects are almost completely distinct. Those involved don’t help much by sniping constantly about which is the “real” movement.

Review the full opinion piece on Wharton School's website.
