Blockchain-to-blockchain: New B2B?
With the recent increase in ICOs all over the world, there has been a lot of talk of how Blockchain technology is entering the next generation of its development. Beyond simply functioning as a currency or store of value, investor attention has been taken up increasingly by more indirect applications of Blockchain/crypto technology, meta applications as it were (those that address problems in the crypto ecosystem instead of problems in the outside world).
This makes sense for investors since many of the most successful investments in companies in the tech world do not actually address consumer needs, but instead the needs of other companies (known as business-to-business, or B2B). Companies like Google and Microsoft have made much of their money this way.
