The Enlightened Blockchain Expertby Mann Matharu on May 28, 2018
I’ve had two or three positive life-changing (more like awakenings) events that have taken place in the last few years.
Reiki for me was one of them. I was not expecting it to be, which is why it had the most impact on my mind, body and soul. I was not a “spiritual” person before, I am now. However, I’m also fascinated with computer science. I am not coder or programmer, yet I understand the logic in systems and appreciate how technology can further the human race.
For years, I have tried to bring my spiritual knowledge and experience to the World, hence the release of my book The Monk of Lantau. I then started actively writing in my journal at mannMatharu.com – but something was still missing.
It was 2017 (already relatively late to the party), there it was…the buzz word that kept appearing on almost every website or application I was using, ‘Blockchain’. Like many others, I immediately thought Bitcoin and dismissed it. Boy, was I wrong.
I started spending a lot of time researching and educating myself about Blockchain technology and don’t worry, this is not going to be a technical write up about how this technology works!
I believe in many philosophies about life itself, such as Universal Laws of Attraction, Karma and living in a higher state of consciousness and as I mentioned earlier, I was not fully synchronised with my daily work activities (running a web agency) and my personal ambitions of living a compassionate and peaceful life which is fundamentally built on trust in fellow human beings as our daily lives revolve around the interaction between others.
Again, I come back to the Blockchain. After such a long time, technology experts starting saying things like:
“The Blockchain provides transparency”
“It has superior security and can not be manipulated”
“Blockchain encourages trust between people”
“It is completely auditable and immmutable”.
When was the last time you spoke to tech person who used words like “trust” when they were speaking about a specific technological topic? I’m in this space and even I don’t remember.
It was no wonder that I was drawn to this revolutionary technology. Finally, there was a technology principle or movement going on that resonated deeply with my personal ideas about life and fairness in the World. The Blockchain does it all.
Blockchain is ultimately a decentralised secure database framework upon which developers can build revolutionary applications which will shape the future.
I am not alone in my thoughts about what endless possibilities exist by adopting Blockchain. As more and more people (within and outside the community) start to understand and embrace this next generation of the Internet the better the World be.
It’s hard to list all of the amazing work that’s going on in the Blockchain community, however the two below are currently my favourite companies/organisations that are leading the Blockchain revolution, enhancing the lives of its’ members and society as they continue to grow their global footprint.
Celsius Network Limited – A P2P POS Decentralized Lending & Borrowing Wallet: celsius.network
