Blockchain is entering a new independent kingdom
If one word is used to describe the current blockchain market, calmness may not be more appropriate. Recalling the moment when the blockchain was enthusiastically sought after by people, it became more and more calm in the current blockchain market. You know, when the blockchain is recognized by people, in many cases it is deeply tied to the digital currency. Coupled with the help of capital power, the development of the blockchain has become more and more fanatical. Just seeing the blockchain as a means of creating wealth, and not looking for enough scenarios to support it, all good things are just bubbles.
How to change the underlying technology of the blockchain and how to enrich the application scenarios of the blockchain have become important issues that people must face. Unlike the simple and fast way that the blockchain and digital currency are deeply bound, the relevant technology and scenarios are not a simple matter. It requires a long and continuous process. We see that so many players are doing scene applications, but there are very few players who can really realize profit through scenes, and even build a blockchain world through scene applications. Therefore, blockchain is by no means an existence that can see results quickly, but an area that requires long-term cultivation.
Fortunately, a spark of application has appeared in the current blockchain market. We are beginning to see blockchain in many fields such as copyright protection, food traceability, and electronic signatures. Although these blockchain application scenarios have not yet truly subverted and changed the operating mode of traditional industries, at least we have seen many new changes that have begun to occur in many traditional industries because of the application of blockchain. It is foreseeable that with the continuous enrichment and improvement of blockchain scenarios, the current spark of blockchain applications will form a prairie fire, which will open the real blockchain era.
For the current blockchain industry, it may not be the technology itself that really troubles its development, but how to apply blockchain technology to as many different industries and scenarios as possible, and connect them in series. , To form an ecology, so that the blockchain is no longer an isolated existence. Therefore, when people focus their attention on the technology itself, they are actually going to the other extreme, that is, the technology is regarded as the whole block chain, which is actually constructing a new "independent kingdom". Although this "independent kingdom" has been changed from the previous blind issuance or ICO, it is still not a benign existence.
When the development of the blockchain industry begins to bid farewell to fanaticism and return to quietness, perhaps what we should really think about is how to make it develop in a healthy and healthy way, rather than going from one extreme to another. So, when the development of the blockchain industry begins to return to technology and rationality, how should we prevent it from falling into another independent kingdom?
Coordinated development of technology and application, instead of losing the other
Whether in the frenetic era of the early days, or in the calm and objective era of today, we are all facing the same problem, that is, we will lose sight of the other. In the early days, we blindly bound the blockchain and digital currency deeply, and finally made the blockchain and digital currency an inseparable existence, and finally brought the development of the blockchain to a dead end. Now, we are blindly focusing on technology research and development, complacent on technology research and development, but ignoring the implementation and application of blockchain.
No matter which development model it is, it is not the correct development model for blockchain. Because they do not deeply integrate blockchain technology and application scenarios, when technology and applications cannot complement each other, the development of the blockchain industry is abnormal. For the blockchain, the truly correct development model should be to allow the application of scenarios to test the blockchain technology, and to use the blockchain technology to explore the reasons for the scenarios. By deeply integrating the technology and the scenarios, a benign blockchain can be achieved. The purpose of healthy development.
On the one hand, the landing and application of the scene can be provided with guidance and financial support by the research and development of blockchain technology, so that the research and development of blockchain technology is no longer an existence with only input but no output; on the other hand, the development of blockchain technology The landing can make the landing and application of the scene continue to be enriched and improved, so that the scene of the blockchain is no longer an isolated existence, but an ecosystem. When the development of the blockchain industry achieves the coordinated development of technology and applications, its development will be healthy and comprehensive.
Blockchain technology and external technology should be deeply integrated, rather than closed and self-confident
When it comes to blockchain, we first think of its independence and closure. Even though blockchain technology can bring a disruptive transformation to the existing business model, its development still needs to be connected with the external market in order to be long-lasting and sustainable. Although people’s understanding of the blockchain is beginning to become comprehensive, many people are still isolated and one-sided on the issue of blockchain. They believe that the blockchain is always the opposite of external technology and cannot The reconciliation finally made the development of the blockchain industry stand on the opposite side, and they themselves also fell into isolation and self-confidence.
When the development of the blockchain industry has entered a new stage, we should think more about the connection between blockchain technology and external technologies, especially the connection between blockchain technology and Internet technology. With this connection, we can allow blockchain technology to find more application scenarios. Through this connection, we can absorb new nutrition for the development of the blockchain industry.
When blockchain technology finds the best way and method to integrate with external technology, especially Internet technology, instead of just treating blockchain technology as an isolated and closed existence, its development can be regarded as real Become mature. When the blockchain and external technologies begin to integrate deeply, its development can be regarded as truly entering a new stage of development.
The relationship between blockchain and digital currency needs to be further straightened out
Although people's understanding of blockchain has become rational and objective, digital currency has always been a hurdle that cannot be avoided. Therefore, we see a lot of blockchain applications. Although they all regard the application as the key point, in the process of application, people always unnaturally associate the landing and application with digital currency. One of the important reasons for this strange phenomenon is that people still have not straightened out the relationship between blockchain and digital currency.
Because of this, when the development of the blockchain industry enters a new stage, another key to avoiding the development of the blockchain industry from falling into a dead end again is still to straighten out the relationship between the blockchain and digital currency. According to the author's understanding, digital currency is not incompatible with blockchain, but can promote each other. The chaos of digital currency we saw in the early days was only because people only regarded digital currency as the only blockchain, but considered digital currency as the key to open the closed loop of blockchain scenarios.
When the blockchain and digital currency are in the same situation and cannot establish a benign and healthy relationship, the development of the blockchain has actually fallen into another vicious circle. Really regard digital currency as a key part of opening up blockchain application scenarios, and straightening out the relationship between private chain digital currency and public chain digital currency, especially legal digital currency, is to ensure that blockchain technology can continue The key to development.
There is no doubt that the current development of the blockchain industry has begun to become rational and objective. However, the development model of only technology first and only scene first has also begun to bring the development of the blockchain industry into another dead end. In the long run, the blockchain industry still has the risk of becoming a new "independent kingdom". Further straighten out the development logic of the blockchain, and further break the closure and self-confidence of the blockchain, and its development can truly open a new stage of development.
