The critical ingredient blockchain is missing

The critical ingredient blockchain is missing
It’s fair to say that Blockchain technology has exploded in recent years, but it’s not without its problems. Putting aside the fluctuations in the value of cryptocurrencies, the reality is that the uptake of this technology has not reached expected heights. So, why is that? On the surface, the possibilities of Blockchain technology are endless. The problem is that this is also its undoing. Many argue that we are still unaware of the real potential of the Blockchain and we trip over our feet in our rush to gain a better understanding. In doing so, we are missing out on something that is very important. Ignoring the heart of the Blockchain. People tend to focus on potential apps or ways of using the technology while also ignoring the core of the Blockchain. While Bitcoin is on its own path, it’s Ethereum that lies at the heart of so much of the development. The issue is the push for the fastest, cheapest version of Blockchain possible. We don’t have the patience to wait. This leads to sub-standard developments as people look at using Ethereum as a core when it’s simply not up to the job.
