It is so hard to keep up these days. I really don't know how you do it, but please, keep it up and posting what you find.

Kevin, do you think the Bitcoin will hike up again ?

Rami, I am afraid the up and down of Bitcoin like most cryptocurrencies will continue through 2019 an beyond. Many are not ready for digital money!

I agree that Blockchain will continue to find its way into business processes and technologies. However, I don't think that it will be due to digital currency like Bitcoin, as it's value fluctuations make it too risky for everyday use. Also, the amount of power needed to perform a transaction is increasing, which makes it uneconomical for the average individual.

However, it's also being used as a method of verifying authenticity and registry. This is where the real disruption is likely to take place.
