Blockchain Design is Academic Work?
Blockchain design is academic work and shouldn't just be decided by banks, suggests Dr Gideon Greenspan, who is the founder of Coin Sciences and MultiChain. Dr Greenspan believes that the fundamentals of blockchain design constitutes "academic work" and is probably not something that should just be decided by banks alone.
He continues; "...rather, I think this is work that should be done by experienced computer scientists and system architects, wherever they might happen to be."
