Companies use a public blockchain

Would companies use a public blockchain and potentially expose their data?

Hi everyone!

I have a fairly good idea of how I might use a public blockchain with my own projects to conduct transactions between users… but I was curious to how and why companies would want to expose any of their data to the public.

If not, could we really hope for mass adoption of blockchain technology?

Luckily I had the chance to chat to @andracy (Andrew Levine the CEO of the Koinos Group) where we could talk about how and why companies might use a public blockchain…. or the situations where they might use a private blockchain for a closed consortium of companies.

This chat is available on Cinnamon Video:

Public blockchains for enterprises?

There are so many reasons and ideas here on why a company might want to use a public blockchain…

Andrew covers a whole range of ideas, but the one I was most interested in was to use resource credits/mana to help pay for business costs, or use NFTs to reward users. There is a lot in here to dissect.

There is a lot here that I could use myself, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. The idea that users could help pay for business costs based on how they use your system is super interesting… which may provide a mechanism for infinite scaling. Amazing!
