The consumer and Blockchain
The most important segment of all value chains is the final one. Very often, the final segment represents the customer and customer-related activities; this is also the case of Blockchain.
Consumers cannot be removed from the chain of a technology like Blockchain whose goal is to help people. Its main advantages include digital identity control, which allows users to choose the information that they make available to third-parties; the protection of their privacy and monetization of customer attention.
Whichever the case, the consumer never stays out of the concept. We should remember Bill Gates’ words: “We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don't let yourself be lulled into inaction.”
