Why Blockchain?

Today's most exciting use cases for blockchain technology extend far beyond payments and digital currency. New protocols that offer much more robust programming capabilities than bitcoin have ushered in the era of the "smart contract," and expectations are sky-high for what that could mean in industries ranging from capital markets trading, digital rights management, new peer-to-peer insurance models, and the internet of things.
