Over the past decade, blockchain technology and decentralized currencies have become more and more relevant, with software engineers in a unique position to help shape what is now known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Nevertheless, several challenges have emerged, including regulatory concerns, the growing skills gap, and negative perceptions informing public opinion. According to Brink News, both token holders and pioneering projects been impacted, while regional jurisdictions have in turn influenced wider industry developments and shaped the global conversation.
Indeed, volatile price swings, unrelenting scams during the initial coin offering (ICO) boom of 2017, and persisting regulatory concerns have significantly hindered mass blockchain adoption and implementation.
Greater regional harmonization is therefore required to help build trust in the sector by aiding in the institutionalization of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
The impact of a growing tech skills gap has also made itself felt throughout multiple global sectors, with education being cited as the way forward, amid efforts from the blockchain sector to secure a future based on long-term progression. As projects continue to actively work with leading education institutions, the skills gap can be addressed to provide future developers, entrepreneurs, and innovators with the resources necessary to succeed.
Moreover, with negative external optics having impacted the potential for projects to thrive on a wider scale, it is necessary for observers and enthusiasts to note that 10 years is not an adequate gauge for assessing the performance of blockchain.
The technology is still in its early stages and will take several more years of institutional support and regulations to achieve peak productivity, adoption, and application.
