[Blockchain Notes
  • Blockchain is not Bitcoin. A previous post mentioned Bitcoin under 'The Case Against Blockchain and ICO'. While blockchain is more than Bitcoin, Bitcoin is a flagship app of blockchain, just as VW was a flagship marquee for diesels. 
  • Blockchain is not just a marketing term. This refers to blockchain as used for marketing or by sub-prime ICOs, not the concept of blockchain itself.
  • ICOs are fantasies. Some certainly look far fetched in ambition. Our listings give a glimpse of startup propositions from an ecosystem which is not the usual ones.]
