How much do we know about blockchain and cryptocurrencies?

Blockchain and cryptocurrencies have been with us for more than a decade. However, in recent years these concepts have spread to different areas, and it has become commonplace to hear about them. However, we still have a lot to learn.

As it has advanced, the crypto world has resulted in a tremendously polarized discourse: its staunch supporters believe it is saving the world; its critics are convinced that it is all a scam that will blow up the economy. Kevin Roose, tech journalist for The New York Times insists, with nearly a decade of writing about cryptocurrencies to his credit, that he agrees, with both sides to some extent. He backs the skeptics in the argument that most of the cryptocurrency market consists of overvalued and possibly fraudulent assets.

Cryptocurrencies, as Roose claims, are very poorly explained. According to the specialist, understanding crypto as soon as possible is important because it is going to be a profoundly transformative force in the coming years. For this reason, Kevin Roose has endeavored to put together a question-and-answer guide in NYT that clears up many of these doubts. On News-365 you can read an insightful summary of the study, I’ll leave the link here. At AIR Institute and the BISITE Research Group we are aware of how important Blockchain technology is and what it means for the global cryptocurrency drive. In this regard, we are researching and developing different projects and offer training in the area with the Master in Blockchain and Smart Contracts at the University of Salamanca.
