A very obvious phenomenon is happening - the meta universe is being praised by more and more people, whether it is a technology giant or a capital giant. At the same time, the blockchain is returning to rationality and objectivity bit by bit. This is a good phenomenon for blockchain. It tells us that people's fanatical and radical understanding of blockchain is being corrected step by step. As a result, the development of the blockchain industry will really enter a new stage of development.
It is different from the past that people only regard blockchain as a concept and use it to obtain capital and traffic. When people become more aware of blockchain, capital and traffic are no longer the real concern of blockchain players. At least from the current situation, those players who are still sticking to the blockchain industry are more adhering to the long-term principle and seeking the right way and method to combine the blockchain with the industry, rather than just looking at the blockchain as a gimmick and concept.
To be sure, this is a truly sustainable and long-term development model for blockchain. Only after such a stage of development can blockchain truly build a huge ecosystem belonging to it. With this as the beginning, a new business era will come, which takes blockchain technology as the underlying infrastructure and takes the business model derived from blockchain technology as the leading role. After such a stage of development and improvement, people's production and life will be changed by blockchain technology, just as Internet technology has changed people's production and life. Therefore, the real blockchain era can come.
Blockchain is isolated from the Internet
Although those who highly value blockchain often regard it as the successor of the Internet. However, when they are landing and practicing blockchain, they can't help but treat blockchain and the Internet as the same. Whether we regard blockchain as a new concept to attract the attention of capital or a way and means to harvest traffic, we can clearly feel this. The reason why so many people are so excited about the concept of "blockchain+" is the direct reflection of such a state.
Practice has proved that just viewing blockchain as the outer garment of the Internet and just continuing the Internet era with blockchain cannot bring sustainable energy to the development of blockchain. When it is difficult for the blockchain to cover up its real intention, everything will turn into a bubble, like a foam in the sun. In the past, we have seen the collapse of many development models dominated by currency issuance or ICO, which is a direct reflection of this phenomenon.
To make the blockchain truly go out of a new way of development suitable for itself, the first thing we need to do is to insulate the blockchain from the Internet, so that the blockchain can truly find a new development mode suitable for itself. To achieve this goal, we still need to start from the essence of the blockchain, and we still need to return the blockchain to its essence. So, what is the essence of blockchain? In my opinion, the essence of blockchain is actually a technology.
Since blockchain is a technology, its biggest significance is how to integrate with the industry, and how to solve the pain points and problems in real business with its own ways and means. Only in this way can the blockchain be viable. It is under the guidance of such a concept that we have seen the beginning of the deep integration of blockchain and industry. Whether it is blockchain+food traceability, blockchain+intellectual property protection, or blockchain+legal justice... these can be seen as a concrete manifestation of blockchain's return to technology and farewell to the Internet.
Unlike the Internet era, which only uses Internet technology to gather all relevant resources on one platform and center, blockchain attempts to create a new business model. Under such a business model, what we can see is that the platform and center in the Internet era are no longer so important. Instead, the rise of individuals and the emergence of distributed businesses, each with its own characteristics. With this as a starting point, the mainstream business model will be replaced by a new, decentralized, non-traditional and brand-new business model.
If we regard this as an aspect of the isolation between blockchain and the Internet, then the formation of a new driving force will make the blockchain completely break away from the previous development mode and method. It can be said that the real blockchain players do not need capital and traffic. The reason is that the so-called capital and flow are actually the concepts of the Internet age. In the context of blockchain, each individual is unique and irreplaceable. Under the business model of blockchain, they do not need the blood transfusion of capital, but have formed a new system built on the relevant elements of blockchain. Under such a brand-new system, even without the help of capital, it can still work very well.
Therefore, we can see from both the business model and the underlying driving force that the blockchain is being isolated from the Internet. When the blockchain completely breaks away from the shackles of the Internet and really enters its own development state, any common existence we see in the Internet era may disappear in the blockchain era. With the gradual completion and improvement of the blockchain business system, a real blockchain era will eventually come.
Blockchain is isolated from digital currency
When it comes to blockchain, digital currency is a barrier that we can never bypass. It is precisely because of such a continuous and disorderly relationship between blockchain and digital currency that not only brings its own development into a dead end, but also brings the development of digital currency into a dilemma. When people's understanding of blockchain becomes deeper, and when people gradually straighten out the relationship between blockchain and digital currency, another obvious phenomenon we see now is that blockchain begins to be isolated from digital currency.
To be sure, if digital currency is an existence independent of the real business system and regulatory system, and if digital currency is an existence independent of the real real economy, then the greatest practical significance of its existence is collection. Even if it is only a collection, the value of digital currency is still based on a huge consensus mechanism. In short, only by building enough consensus and a strong consensus system can we maximize the value of digital currency. Otherwise, digital currency must be a false proposition.
One of the key reasons why blockchain has started to enter a new stage of development is that it has begun to insulate itself from digital currencies, especially those dominated by harvesting traffic. How to insulate? In my opinion, the most important point is to bid farewell to the past functions and functions of digital currency, especially the former function and role of digital currency in creating wealth, and truly return digital currency to a development track that supports entities and industries and helps entities and industries operate more efficiently.
Therefore, the isolation between blockchain and digital currency here refers more to the isolation from the classic digital currency dominated by issuing currency or ICO. Only in this way can the development of blockchain jump out of the development mode of taking digital currency as the ultimate pursuit and enter a new development stage. In such a new stage of development, digital currency is no longer the end point, but has become a role that supports industrial development and helps the evolution of entities. Finally, with the bridging of legal digital currency, a complete business closed loop is created, and the blockchain really returns to entities and industries. In this case, the functions and functions of the blockchain have not only been brought into full play, but also found the right way and method to return to entities and industries.
Blockchain is isolated from capital
When blockchain is always associated with capital, its development cannot return to its proper position in any case. One of the most important reasons is that the essence of blockchain is a kind of technology, and what the technology itself should really do is to integrate with the industry, and twin new business models, and then use the business model to find ways and means of chemical reaction with capital. When blockchain begins to connect with capital, it becomes a business, not a technology. Obviously, this is divorced from the essence and significance of the blockchain. In the long run, the development of blockchain is out of focus.
In order to make the blockchain return to its proper functions and positions, the most fundamental point is to isolate it from capital and return to technology itself. From the current development situation, we can see that blockchain is really returning more and more to technology itself and infrastructure. For the current blockchain players, they pay more attention to the iteration and update of the blockchain's own technology, the improvement of the blockchain's own technical capabilities, and the optimization of the blockchain's own technical system.
When blockchain technologies are complete enough, they will naturally become solutions to the difficulties and problems of industry development. At this time, the capital will no longer be faced with blockchain, but become the business form and business model derived from blockchain. This is the right posture for the combination of blockchain and capital. Now, the explosion of the meta universe we see is a direct reflection of such a phenomenon.
Although the meta universe itself covers many technologies, the blockchain is bound to play a crucial role in so many technological processes. If we regard the meta universe as a tall building, then the blockchain is just the steel and cement for building these tall buildings, and the many scenes and applications included in the meta universe are the fillers for filling this tall building. It is these external fillers that are really connected with capital. The blockchain has already gone deep into the interior and is no longer directly connected with the capital industry.
For blockchain, this is the key reason why it has really entered a new stage of development. When blockchain began to be isolated from capital, it really jumped out of the development model that was only dominated by concepts and gimmicks, and entered a new development stage.
When the meta universe began to be more and more respected, what we saw was that a development model with "insulation" as the main body began to be performed in the blockchain industry. For blockchain, such a new development model is the one that can really bring about evolution for itself; Such a development model can break away from the traditional development model. When the development of blockchain breaks away from the previous rules and regulations, and when the development of blockchain is no longer hindered, its development may really enter a new stage of development.
