Since I'm rather tired of the constant discussions about cryptocurrency as some great advancement in humanity and a supposedly good investment, I thought it was important to provide an illustration of why blockchain technology is far more interesting than cryptocurrency and could impact many other fields: https://biotechconnection-sg.org/the-applications-of-blockchain-technology-in-drug-discovery-and-development/
To me the investment opportunity will be in companies using blockchain to do other things such as drug discovery.
