Like many here, I learned about cryptocurrency only after first dismissing it initially. I knew exactly how hard of a problem it was trying to solve, after living through the first crypto war. Only after reading “the whitepaper” and seeing a proposed solution that was both simple and elegant did I realize that this was in fact the way forward. And away forward I’ve been ever since.
I was fortunate to be a small part of an educational startup around blockchain education (Blockchain University), both building and witnessing incredible uses cases atop this empowering utility. One of the great use cases of this technology, beyond money, is the ability for it to provide time stamping/notary services and novel forms of attestation that are just now being dreamt of. I believe Notary Coin is proof of this, and I would be thrilled to be a part of this new endeavor.
There are many questions still, not if the technology is able to support such work but rather around social and legal frameworks needing to catch up to what is now possible. It will be both exciting and scary, seeing these legacy systems adapt to the new realities of crypto. I am constantly amazed at the new technologies coming out in this field, and forcing change to better help all.
