This article is a great primer on Blockchain. Whilst, Bitcoin has generated most of the headlines, investors have dramatically increased investment in Blockchain focussed start-ups. Total VC investment is expected to reach $575m in 2016 from $501m in 2015 and only $4m in 2012. 

One of the most surprising features has been the range of sectors that are being tackled including IoT, education, financial services, healthcare, digital media and supply chain. 

Are we looking at the next computing platform? In the same way as we went from PC to internet to mobile and now AR/VR - could Blockchain be the next platform?
