Ethereum’s future is incredibly bright, not just as a digital currency but as a platform that allows you to run Smart contracts. It is currently helping to accelerate the move from an economy that is well and truly centralized to one that is decentralized, permissionless and borderless, to an economy that is firmly back in the hands of the people.
Decentralized applications have the power and the potential to cause positive disruption to the world, to bring about huge changes to industries like the public sector, health, finance, social media, real estate, insurance, entertainment and much more besides.
In the same way that the people who invented the internet had little idea that several years down the line cloud computing and social media would take it by storm, we have little idea at this stage what kind of applications will come out of the Ethereum blockchain. The future is looking incredibly promising though – Ethereum is already the highest traded cryptocurrency of 2017 and the price is expected to rise so now is the time to jump on the bandwagon and join in.
