Raffaele Mauro, managing director of Endaevor Italy, was guest speaker at our “Blockchain and Crypto values Conference” recounting his vision on Blockchain in the talk “Venture Capital and Crypto: The Equity Side”. He is also the author of the book “Hacking finance: the bitcoin and blockchain revolution” published by Agenzia X.
During the conference, Raffaele had the opportunity to tell his vision on the future of cryptocurrencies, blockchain and all possible applications that these technologies will allow to convey. In this interview, he takes the opportunity to deepen his personal thinking.
The cryptocurrencies have given a great innovative boost to the affirmation of the blockchain and the bitcoin represents the most important, famous and significant expression.
These technologies, or rather “cryptotechnology” and all the systems based on the blockchain promise to substantially change the way we will live in the future by decentralizing, not only work models but also activities related to everyday life.
After the bitcoins there has been a great wave of innovation that has generated crypto technology.
According to Raffaele cryptofinance is becoming an important element of technofinance (Financial Technology or FinTech) allowing the provision of financial products and services connected to them through the use of blockchains.
Raffaele is optimistic about the future in which he imagines that the use of blockchain will be as simple and accessible to everyone as the use of the smtp protocol for email, allowing, among other things, to enable some financial instruments such as global payments. But not only that, the spread of the blockchain will be an important driver for many other financial applications and thanks to the success of this technology will benefit and, consequently, will succeed, in its wake, to establish itself quickly.
Raffaele tells us that the potential of the blockchain and its success, can have repercussions on entire industries like those that deal with IoT, but there is a long road ahead.
This technology still needs a lot of research before it can be affirmed.
The Blockchain 2018 conference was a great opportunity to network, study and better understand this technology, concludes Raffaele, but represents only a small step of the long road that needs to be covered to be able to understand and make the most of the potential of the blockchain.
