Blockchain Future

Eric van Miltenburg, SVP of Global Operations at Ripple, said the following on UBRI:

“Blockchain is an incredibly transformational technology and helping advance the best minds in the world, who are already showing interest in this field, is sure to benefit the entire ecosystem […] Expanding the ecosystem to a more global, diversified network of UBRI partners will only continue to enrich these projects.”

Blockchain technology is being utilized across the globe by multiple industries. It is having a transformative impact on businesses and, as such, preparing for the increasing demand for this technology is not only smart but necessary. In an industry rife with hype, coin-related drama, major financial losses, gains, and prolific exchange hacks, thinking beyond the now and developing the core technology will ensure its survival.
