Blockchain will change everything. But how, when, and who will get it done are the questions we at Underscore VC get excited about! That’s why we created an industry-wide Future of Blockchain survey to fuel debate and give back to the growing crypto community.

Topics up for discussion:

  • What are the top factors hindering blockchain adoption?
  • What are the top factors accelerating blockchain adoption?
  • Crypto price stability
  • Blockchain scalability
  • Is uncertainty around regulation hindering crypto innovation?
  • Is mining today centralized or decentralized?
  • Can the average person participate as a miner?
  • Is mining becoming more centralized or decentralized?
