Many people have heard of Bitcoin, but for the last few months the virtual currency world has become gradually obsessed with Ethereum, the Bitcoin V2.
Imagine a smart currency that can not only act as a token of ownership, but can also determine who the current owner should be based on the outcome of a contract or any particular set of circumstances being met. Take it further and there are possibilities of joint savings accounts, financial exchange markets, or trust funds. Conceptualise further and theoretically automated corporations can trade Ether to make profit without the intervention of humans. That might all be a bit ‘Skynet’ for some, but whichever way you look at this this is very exciting technology with the ability to disrupt conventional capitalistic structures, and something that we at HTL are fervidly interested in.
