Introducing Sparkchain – our dedicated team for cryptocurrency and blockchain markets

Introducing Sparkchain

Today we are announcing Sparkchain, a unique team of highly trained and impassioned specialists focused on the emerging technologies in the cryptocurrency and blockchain markets. We believe that these new technologies will form the foundation of the next significant chapter in the evolution of the internet.

Yes, I said it. These technologies will be the platform on which the next era of the internet will be built.  This new blockchain era will usher in an age of transparency, efficiency, and trust across international borders, markets, and cultures. And similar to how the current era of the internet has transformed how information flows freely, the blockchain era will transform how assets of value will flow freely – digital assets that is. Those who are watching these technologies closely are witnessing the first evidence of this transformation in the form of Bitcoin as it emerges as the world’s first globally accepted digital currency – a digital asset of increasing value.

For most people today, the blockchain era has not yet appeared on their personal radar screen, or if it has, they find it too complicated and complex to understand. After all, terms like hard forks, shards, segregated witness, nonces, hashes, ICO’s, DLT, DAOs and crypto exchanges are not the typical dinner discussion topics with friends and family. That’s where our Sparkchain team comes in; We have assembled the industry’s top communications and marketing experts and we are studying, understanding, and already working closely with the leaders in the new emerging blockchain era. Our goal is to partner with these leaders, crafting narratives that are relevant, understandable, and resonate with audiences near and far. Indeed, we have much work to do.

So far, I can say this is a wild ride, as the digital gold rush is only just beginning. The ecosystem is rapidly forming – brilliant software developers, cryptography experts, disruptive ideas, financial investors, business partnerships, early adopters, and now with Sparkchain – true marketing and communications experts. Soon, we anticipate more changes as expanded governmental guidelines and regulations will alter the game.

If you’re one of the majority who are not well versed and have minimal understanding of blockchain and crypto technologies, don’t worry – it’s still quite early.  If you’d like to learn more we invite you to join us on our journey to discover how the next era of the internet will unfold and how it will have a profound effect on both our future and our children’s future.

Stay tuned for my next blog which will discuss in more detail what blockchain is and why you should care. But I’ll warn you first – it’s as fascinating and transformative as it is complicated and, like us, you might just get sucked in and develop an unquenchable thirst to learn more.

Finally, I’ll end this initial post with a quote from another Alan, the much more famous ex-Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, whose quote seems appropriate for my current state of knowledge and the rapidly changing state of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies:

“I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you’ve probably misunderstood what I’ve said.”
