Blockchain: we need to first learn to “write”

07.03.2018   Anton Bondarenko

Recently, more and more people use this word “blockchain” - sometimes seriously, and sometimes as a joke. At times it seems that the “blockchain” is like the second coming of Christ, which was eagerly awaited in the Middle Ages and which was associated with the solution of all problems.

Yes, we also use this word. In addition, we studied and explored a number of blockchain projects in different directions and topics. And we can tell you about it in the following articles.

But ... in our deep conviction, one should not just wait for the “blockchain-coming”, but today and now put into practice the “blockchain-philosophy”. This can be compared to situations where it is known: soon, at some point, pens and pencils will definitely be brought up, but learning to “write” is important right now. Because the very ability to "write" - develops longer and more difficult than the use of specific writing instruments.


And even if at the expected time we are not brought pens and pencils, we can invent other tools for writing. But if we all do not learn to write together, if this skill does not become the norm in our life, then pens and pencils brought in the future will not be in demand for us for a long time, but will only be beautiful toys.

“Blockchain Philosophy” is primarily associated with the construction of horizontal, decentralized, distributed ways of interaction between people. These methods provide more freedom, less dependence on the centers and verticals of power, but on the other hand, they impose more responsibility on people.

Participants, ordinary people will gradually be forced to become more conscious, more interactive and interacting. Preserving and enhancing reputations will be much more important, and losing reputations will be much more painful.


In our ISTIVNE project, we not only develop new tools for people’s interaction in the style of “blockchain-philosophy, but also learn how to design new tools related to various problems of people’s interaction.
