BIT DOWN

The Walrus - - LETTERS -

We were im­pressed with Joshua Oliver’s ar­ti­cle on blockchain, a com­puter pro­gram for shar­ing and se­cur­ing in­for­ma­tion (“Toss of the Bit­coin,” Jan­uary/fe­bru­ary). As busi­ness-school pro­fes­sors, we are par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in how in­di­vid­ual cor­po­ra­tions can use blockchain to lower un­cer­tainty in com­merce be­tween or­ga­ni­za­tions and in op­er­a­tions within an or­ga­ni­za­tion. We ind is­sues about what the fu­ture work­place will look like in a blockchain-en­abled world to be much more in­ter­est­ing, im­por­tant, and less tran­sient than spec­u­lat­ing about the rise and fall of the price of bit­coins.
