    Every once in a while, you come across a gem on the net that is worth a closer look. This is once in a while. Difficult quite to know which category to post it as it covers just about every sector of our SS forum. Digital currency? Check. Real Estate? Check. Online purchases? Check. Making politicians accountable? If only. OK, Check! Addressing global poverty? Check. Screwing the bank? Yep, mission accomplished. Something for everyone. Get your heads around this and take a glimpse into the very near future.

    What is the blockchain? If you don't know, you should; if you do, chances are you still need some clarification on how it actually works. Don Tapscott is here to help, demystifying this world-changing, trust-building technology which, he says, represents nothing less than the second generation of the internet and holds the potential to transform money, business, government and society.
