3. Utilization of Blockchain Technology
So how long will it take for blockchain technology to become widely used in our society? Experts predict that it will take more than five years for blockchain technology to peak in most industries. Gartner, a U.S. IT market research and consulting firm, said in its 2017 Blockchain Heap Cycle report that the market and public interest in blockchain-related technologies such as distributed ledgers, virtual currency wallets and consensus algorithms are at its peak. In addition, most IT consulting agencies predict that blockchain technology will reach the peak of innovation in two to three years, and be commercialized in five to 10 years, so that stable services can be delivered around 2025.

[CUBE NEWS] Professor Ferguson at Harvard, a world-renowned economic historian, said, "I thought wrong, cryptocurrency is not a delusion.”

A world-renowned economic historian who was known as skeptical of cryptocurrency has recently revised his previous remarks and is now talking about the future of cryptocurrency.

On March 7 (local time), according to the ‘Cointelegraph’, Niall Ferguson, a world economic historian and Harvard professor, commented on cryptocurrency, "My past critics on cryptocurrency based on blockchain was my misjudgment. Cryptocurrency was not a delusion," he said.

Ferguson, who attended the 'AFR Business Summit' hosted by Australian Financial Review (AFR) in Australia, told this story at a private occasion.

Professor Ferguson, who has predicted the economic crisis from the historian's point of view and explained the new symbiotic relationship between the United States and China with the term "Chimerica," is also well known for the author of ‘The Ascent of Money’.

Ferguson said, "I may have made this prejudice about the knowledge of the monetary financial history I have accumulated over the years," he said, “It's a bad idea to call a blockchain-based currency is useless."

"Bitcoin's recent price fluctuations are showing longevity and resilience of Bitcoin," Ferguson added. Cube Intelligence’s Richard Biggs commented on that, “I am looking forward to a new leap in the coin market based on the world-renowned economic historian, Ferguson’s comments."

퍼거슨 교수는 이 자리에서그동안 쌓아온 화폐 금융사에 대한 지식이 이러한 편견을 갖게 만들었을 수도 있다내가 완전히 잘못 짚었다. 블록체인 기반의 통화가 아무런 쓸모가 없다는 건 잘못된 생각이라고 고백했습니다.
