Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, a center right, liberal conservative German paper founded in 1949, recently wrote a long article about the catchword after Bitcoin: the Blockchain. Or, as the article sometimes puts it, “the Blockchain.”
The article at many points takes on a sarcastic tone, poking fun at the many wild theories about the potential of the “Blockchain” which proponents tout beyond the use-case of Bitcoin. When speaking about sober possibilities of the Bitcoin blockchain, the author Bettina Weiguny drops the quotations. She’s not convinced the blockchain can save the world. Throughout the article, nevertheless, she acknowledges that very influential people in the financial world are paying attention.
