Why is blockchain interesting? Blockchain is an evolution to the way information is stored, cannot be tampered with, and is shared publicly. It inspires confidence, reliability, security and transparency of data. In finance it has found it’s first tangible use case. It has revolutionised the way value is being transferred  globally, irrespective of national borders. It is a game changer that provides access to finance, that is cheap , efficient and fast to people who didn't have access to the banking system. Also, it is unique how decentralised communities have developed on top of it. It has a huge impact on legal frameworks, it raises unheard questions and will push legal boundaries to new territories. It’s a (r)evolution!
