Why is blockchain interesting?
I find blockchain technology fascinating because it brings to attention the importance of Distribution ledgers and Decentralization. The traceability, security, and immutability of blockchain technology can foster opportunities for many industries. My focus is the financial sector and I believe that blockchain can bring more transparency to this sector, including collaborations and transactions.

My touchpoints with blockchain so far: Readings, online courses, hands-on practices with smart contracts, crypto event, investment.
