he overwhelming reaction when discussing the investment viability of blockchain and Bitcoin is a mixture of interest, confusion and scepticism. Most people think it’s a bubble, others think it’s fascinating, almost all admit to not really knowing enough about it. The excitement surrounding blockchain and cryptocurrency reminds me of the .com era in the 90s and the similar reaction to talking about that digital revolution. Yes, that was a bubble as well peaking in early 2000s. Those of us who rode that roller coaster ride remember the joke “How do you scare a venture capitalist?” “You say Boo.” If you remember the fate of Boo.com you will totally understand the joke even if you do not find it funny. But the Internet as a serious business platform endured, and continues to disrupt and revolutionise the traditional terrestrial business paradigm.
