  2. Blockchain Is ‘Bigger Than Bitcoin’, Says Firm Behind Tech ETF Eric Ervin, chief executive officer of Reality Shares Inc., talks about why the firm developed a blockchain ETF rather than a cryptocurrency fund. The Reality Shares Nasdaq NexGen Economy ETF, ticker BLCN, started trading last week. Ervin was interviewed on Jan. 16. Comments have been edited and condensed. How does your ETF work? We wanted to build an index of publicly-traded companies that are using blockchain or developing the technology for it, or even companies investing in it. And from there, what we wanted to do was somehow objectify it. Because this is so new, we knew we had to come up with a robust scoring system, and so we came down to seven factors that we can look at. For example, we look at whether the company is a user, developer or an investor in the technology -- so what is their role in the ecosystem? We also look at their economic impact -- so if blockchain technology just explodes, how much will it actually impact the business itself? We look at the different factors, and that rolls into one score -- we call it the blockchain score -- and we rank all the companies according to that and choose the companies that have the highest score. Why a blockchain ETF rather than a cryptocurrency fund? I’m not an anti-cryptocurrency person at all, but we are big believers in the technology. If you think about the technology versus the cryptocurrency itself, the cryptocurrency is as far out on the speculative spectrum as you could possibly go. As you walk yourself back, you get to the infrastructure -- the people who are building out the infrastructure and providing the services on that infrastructure. Those are the people that you can count on. It’s more measurable and it’s easier to monetize innovation if you’re a service provider in the innovation cycle. Think about Wal-Mart, for example, as they eradicate food poisoning issues due to the blockchain technology and their supply chain usage. That’s a massive cost-saving metric for their business. Or JPMorgan as they launch their blockchain -- they won’t have all of the trade processing or wasted friction. That’s another example of how this can have nothing to do with cryptocurrency and how it’s just another shared database. The point is that blockchain technology is a lot bigger than bitcoin.

  4. Blockchain Is Changing Our World: Here Are The Best Practical Examples Of How It Is Used In 2018 The potential of blockchain technology to disrupt nearly every industry in some way cannot be dismissed even though there are still several hurdles to overcome before we see its full transformative impact. Leaders of major financial institutions where security is paramount and change is often resisted see enough upside in blockchain technology that they have been willing to invest millions in resources to learn how to best implement it. And, they are not alone. Any business with valuable digital assets from contacts to contracts they need to protect can find a legitimate use case for blockchain technology. What makes blockchain powerful? Blockchains, whether public or private, are a real-time ledger of records stored in a distributed, peer-to-peer fashion independent from any central authority. Since every record is encrypted and time-stamped and users can only access and edit the block they “own” through a private key, it’s very secure. Every block is linked to the one before and the one after it and whenever a change is made, the entire chain gets updated. Blockchain helps secure and streamline transactions efficiently without requiring intermediaries to manage the process. Blockchain technology is revolutionary in terms of record keeping and can track and document every change in a record or transaction. What are the practical uses of blockchain? If you haven’t already realized it, blockchain technology is going to change many systems that you encounter in your day-to-day life. Here are a few of the practical examples: Contract management and smart contracts Any industry heavily reliant on contracts such as insurance, financial institutions, real estate, construction, entertainment and law would benefit from blockchain’s indisputable way to update, manage, track and secure contracts. Smart contracts, those that are embedded with if/then statements and be executed without involvement of an intermediary, also use blockchain technology.
