Trends come and go. Some stick, some don’t. Trends are only trending until… well… until they’re not. In which case, we then all have new trends to talk about. Trending topics are always a major point of discussion amongst us at Protis Global. We love to share articles and information about the latest and greatest and predict whether it’s here to stay or a short-lived wave.
So the question is, why do we pay any mind to them at all?
The short answer is, because you have to know the industry you’re operating in. PAY ATTENTION AND DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE. Exposure and knowledge is the only way to know what is a fad and what is an advance or advantage.

What could it do? Change society and transactional processes in their entirety globally. Cryptocurrency was the driving force behind blockchain, but it’s viable in so many other industries and applications. Cryptocurrency was derived from blockchain technology. Blockchain spreads the risk of infiltration across a network of users and diminishes the vulnerability of a server to external attacks and compromisation.
Where have I seen it? Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and fintech.
What’s the catch? One potential threat to the integration of this technology is how it will affect industries such as banking. If banks start losing money because blockchain technology can reduce the involvement of the middleman, it will be a problem. There could potentially be a loss of billion- maybe trillions- of dollars from banks, companies like Paypal, and even brick and mortar stores.
