Title: Academia's interest beyond cryptocurrency on Blockchain.
Since the birth of the cryptocurrency "Bitcoin", we observe an enormous number of the introduction of similar cryptocurrencies, born of new start-up companies with an interesting idea. From a business perspective, the trend is exciting and may be favorable. But if we compare with the history of the commercial Internet which took decades to become commodity technology, the cryptocurrency technology looks like too early to be used, possibly immature without careful study. The speaker briefly talks about Blockchain technology in the perspective of the possibility of academic research.
