《MIT科技评论》:2019年将是“区块链技术最终回归正常化的一年”

《麻省理工科技评论》(MIT Technology Review )1月2日发表了一篇文章,认为2019年是区块链回归正常的一年。《麻省理工科技评论》是独立但由美国麻省理工学院(MIT)全资拥有的杂志。

这篇文章简短地概述了它对区块链的近期历史的看法,声称区块链技术是“革命性的,2017年表现出了将要颠覆全球金融体系的潜力”,但它在2018年的表现却是让人失望的,几乎所有区块链加密资产和货币的价值都大幅下降。

尽管如此,该评论认为,在新年伊始,许多“听起来很有创意的项目仍然存在,甚至接近开花结果”。再加上几家大公司计划今年推出基于区块链的大型项目,据报道2019年将是“区块链技术最终回归正常的一年”。

该评论援引纽约证交所(NYSE)母公司洲际交易所(ICE)和投资巨头富达(Fidelity)等华尔街老牌公司即将进军加密货币业务的例子,进而说明该行业即将转型。

尽管据报道,围绕区块链的炒作有所减弱,但该评论辩称,这些老牌公司提供的经监管机构批准的加密基础设施是该领域成为主流的一个重要分水岭。

该评论继续表示,另一个例子就是智能合约技术(允许在多种法律环境下使用)的改进让加密货币格言——“代码就是法律(Code is law)”——离成为公认的现实又近了一步。

这篇文章的最后一个论点是,这种技术和行业的正常化将重塑为加密货币和区块链提供最初推动力的意识形态。该文章称,随着国家加密货币的出现,加密货币作为反政府运动的根源正在被颠覆——无论是委内瑞拉已经推出的有争议的石油支持的加密货币Petro,还是其他国家计划推出自己的政府支持的加密货币。

另一个例子是,国际货币基金组织(IMF)总裁Christine Lagarde去年秋天支持对央行支持的加密货币(CBDCs)进行研究。

大约一年前,也就是2018年1月中旬,Cointelegraph发布了一份分析报告,分析了围绕区块链革命的热度——其中最重要的一点是,企业利用区块链技术作为自己的时髦词,在这个被过度炒作的市场上大赚一笔,这种可能性是有利可图的。

MIT Technology Review has published an article today, Jan. 2, arguing that 2019 is the year in which blockchain will become mundane. The Review is a magazine that is independent but wholly-owned by the United States Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The article gives a laconic overview of its take on the recent history of blockchain, claiming that the technology was “a revolution that was supposed to disrupt the global financial system” in 2017, but that it was a disappointment in 2018 — in light of the significant decline in the valuations of virtually all blockchain-based crypto assets and currencies.

Nonetheless, the Review argues, on the cusp of the new year, many “innovative-sounding projects are still alive and even close to bearing fruit.” Together with several large corporations’ plans to launch major blockchain-based projects this year, 2019 is thus reportedly set to be “the year that blockchain technology finally becomes normal.”

As an example of the impending transformation of the sector, the Review cites the forthcoming entries of stalwart Wall Street players such as New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) owner Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) and investment giant Fidelity into the cryptocurrency business.

Even as the hype surrounding blockchain reportedly subsides, it argues that their offerings of regulator-approved infrastructure for crypto are a major watershed in the sector becoming mainstream.

A further example, the Review continues, is the improvement in smart contract technology that will enable its use in multiple legal contexts — making the crypto adage “code is law” one step closer to becoming an accepted reality.

The article’s final argument is that this normalization of the technology and the sector will entail a significant reshaping of the ideology that gave cryptocurrencies and blockchain their first impetus. Crypto’s roots as an anti-government movement is being upended, the article claims, by the advent of national cryptocurrencies — whether they be Venezuela’s already-launched controversial oil-backed cryptocurrency the Petro, or other states’ plans for their own state-backed coins.

A further example given is the endorsement of exploring the case for central bank-backed cryptocurrencies (CBDCs) by International Monetary Fund (IMF) head Christine Lagarde this fall.

Almost one year ago, in mid-January 2018, Cointelegraph published an analysis of the heat surrounding the blockchain revolution — encapsulated by the lucrative possibilities of businesses using the tech as a buzzword in their name to cash in on the over-hyped market.
