In an interview with Cointelegraph, Hedera Hashgraph CTO Leemon Baird mentioned that whereas curiosity in blockchain drastically elevated in 2020, he expects a lot greater issues to return in 2021.
Baird, who holds a doctorate in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University, defined that “the world as an entire seems at this business as blockchain or DLT and says, ‘wow, there’s actually one thing there.’” He continued, “This 12 months I noticed a fast improve in curiosity all through the world. And I feel subsequent 12 months we are going to see a fair greater improve.”
Elaborating on his optimistic forecast for 2021, Baird mentioned “I’m not just like the folks in lots of earlier years, saying ‘effectively, this 12 months there wasn’t a lot, however I am going to wager subsequent 12 months will probably be higher.’”, including:
“I feel that we’re already seeing this 12 months the beginning of that, that individuals are significantly contemplating this one thing actual and it’s for a very long time they have been contemplating it on the sidelines. However now individuals are beginning to get into it for actual, as you’ve got mentioned, and individuals are beginning to put money into it. I imply, large, large organizations, individuals are beginning to truly use it of their firms.”
Baird believes that the business is at the moment on the “knee” of an exponential curve, however that our imaginative and prescient is obscured by zooming in too carefully.
