Oxford Economics’ author Joan Warner’s review of Blockchain Revolution was published this week. In the review, she describes the Tapscotts’ take on blockchain’s effect on mortgages, pharmaceuticals, banking, and even grocery store pricing.

The review goes on to look at practical applications of the ‘ledger of things’ (the Tapscotts’ nickname for the next generation of the internet) – what if a necklace or a drug came with its own provenance, reported back to the blockchain and all interested parties?
I think blockchain is like that.
