Blockchain Humor – Fun Friday

One of the best articles on blockchain in healthcare came from David Houlding when he shared 5 Practical Use Cases Anchoring Blockchain in Healthcare. That piece has really shaped some of my thinking around blockchain in healthcare.

While the insights in the post above are great, I also love that David Houlding has a sense of humor about blockchain as well. Check out the tweet he shared below.

I think this is how most people think of blockchain right now. There’s a lot of misunderstanding and misconceptions. Many of those are actually perpetuated by the industry to encourage more funding and other benefits. No doubt there is a lot of crap out there masquerading as blockchain. It will definitely be interesting to see how blockchain in healthcare goes over time.
