My new role: Blockchain tech for the future of Freedom
Announcing my appointment as CEO of American Blockchain PAC. And, yes. I'll still be posting here.
American Blockchain PAC Chief Executive Officer
Many of my readers like you may not be aware of work I’ve done to help promote blockchain. Today marks the day that I expand that work as CEO of American Blockchain PAC (ABPAC).
What is ‘blockchain’?
Blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. This tech is also known as web3. The public generally associates this technology with cryptocurrencies, but it is much broader than that.
IBM has a great explanation of the importance of blockchain on their website:
The faster [business transactions are] received and the more accurate [they are], the better. Blockchain is ideal for delivering that information because it provides immediate, shared and completely transparent information…. A blockchain network can track orders, payments, accounts, production and much more. And because members [with access permission] share a single view of the truth, you can see all details of a transaction end to end, giving you greater confidence, as well as new efficiencies and opportunities.
Blockchain represents the future of online tech innovation. And because transactions on the blockchain cannot be changed and remain secure to the end user, they represent an opportunity for financial and digital freedom for individuals and the ability for expanded economic activity that benefits businesses and consumers.
