Got it.

I am quite aware of the many others that know more about blockchain than I do, even though I have read about them for close to two years now. I am always happy to see that when I try and explain what it is, quite quicky some people grasp the concept of peer-2-peer transactions. Responding with a: 'So we can do peer-2-peer energy trading as well then?' to me is a sign they got the basics for any further discussion.

The peer-2-peer energy use case is by far the most discussed use case within the energy business, but also the most obvious one. In an industry build on selling energy, it is the obvious translation from the current business to blockchain. The world is still in search for the 'Killer App' which combines blockchain to an energy related use case. Having seen many variations, I'm sure we have only been prodding in the tip of an iceberg. A long road of discovery is still ahead of us.

Introduction Blockchain

This is by far one of the best introductions for Blockchain I have seen in a long time:

With all the buzz surrounding blockchain, it has also become the terrain of the fortune seekers who claim to know it all, charging high consultancy fees while visibly struggling to clarify the basic concept behind bitcoin in their presentations or Youtube video's.

Stop Digging

Science has never been more clearer than this piece from McKibben:

"But as the new math makes clear, keeping fossil fuels in the ground is the only realistic approach. What’s unrealistic is to imagine that we can somehow escape the inexorable calculus of climate change. As the OCI report puts it, “One of the most powerful climate policy levers is also the simplest: stop digging.” That is, after all, the first rule of holes, and we’re in the biggest one ever."
