As interesting as it may sound, until the blockchain is clearly understood, it cannot drive mass adoption.

Blockchain is a publicly distributed ledger of transactions that can be used to record and track anything of value from financial transactions to medical records or even land titles. By design, blockchain is resistant to modification (i.e immutability) and ensures transparency because it is decentralized.
My journey in the crypto space has been fascinating because the more you go, the more you get to learn and meet a lot of several other smart people in the space. I heard about bitcoin and blockchain through a friend mid 2016. Initially , I perceived bitcoin to be just an investment commodity use for online investments. As time went on, it was now clear to me that blockchain technology & cryptocurrencies have a whole lot of value and is also a big ecosystem on its own. Early 2017 , I and my team decided to play big in the space by creating a business around bitcoin and blockchain ecosystem.
Am passionate about the decentralized & transparent data record and tracking system of the blockchain as it can be applied for financial records & transactions (e.g bitcoin), Real estate systems, election & voting systems and so much more.

One of the practical implications of the above are seen in similar news where automobiles like Mecerdes-Benz adopt blockchain for sustainable supply chain. Also the use of Bitcoin to secure Amazon and Itunes Gift cards is another clear use case.
Point is, when the blockchain can conveniently be used in our every day life, then and only then can we brag about adoption.
