The Bitcoin bubble has popped and blockchain growth has moved way past the era of hype by being more than just a buzzword. 2019 has been the year of buidling (no that is not a typo), especially for enterprises like IBM, Walt Dinsey and Alibaba offering blockchain solutions to companies all over the world.
According to Deep Analysis, they’ve estimated a five-year timeline for blockchain mainstream adoption. Some outside factors can help accelerate the timeline, like a famous Hollywood movie educating millions on the functionality and possibilities of blockchain through entertainment.
Charlie’s Angles has gained lots of popularity since their inception as a television show in 1976. Fast forward to 2019, the franchise is set to release its third movie on November 29th. Naomi Scott, one of the new angels, was chatting with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show about the movie and what she had learned from Elizabeth Banks (director).
“All my character talked about was blockchain, and I remember I went in and Liz Banks [director] is so smart…she was explaining it to me, and I was not getting it.”
Naomi continues, “She got a piece of paper out and was drawing a diagram. I was like ‘she’s going to recast me because I don’t know what blockchain is’…to this day, I don’t know what blockchain means.”
With all the questions Naomi might have had, there is no question that blockchain technology is difficult to understand if you do not have business acumen, tech literacy and a hackers mentality. Education is required in the space for sustainable growth. We can only hope that Charlie’s Angels and more Hollywood movies can spark the interest of millions globally to realize the positive implications blockchain is able to provide.
