I walked out of a “blockchain” promotional conference a couple of summers ago. I’d spent enough time stuck in the pews of a moderately evangelical church as a kid to develop a gut reaction to that sort of nonsense.

Hype comes from a lack of understanding about the thing. Whenever things like this appear (.com boom for example) the last people to actually understand it are the one in control of the businesses. When was the last time you saw a CEO or COO actually go and understand what the new tech was?
