Fisher Phillips attorney and resident blockchain guru Adam Bridgers was quoted in a Bloomberg BNA article published last week entitled, “Gigs Gone Wild: Could Blockchain Make Freelancing the Norm?” The article, written by Jasmine Ye Han, is well worth a read as it sheds an interesting perspective on how blockchain might disrupt the gig economy. But of course, it’s also worth reading because of Adam’s keen insight.
Over the last few months, there has been a lot of discussion about Blockchain technology and its potential to revolutionize and transform the sharing or gig economy. If you’re like me, your first question might be, “What the heck is Blockchain?”
My colleague Adam Bridgers wrote a fantastic piece for our April firm newsletter: “Will Workplaces Be Going Off The Rails On The Blockchain?” I highly recommend you take five minutes out of your day and give it a read.
If you are asking, “What’s a Blockchain?” – it’s time you educated yourself. One day you may look back with amusement that you even asked this question, the same way you probably chuckle when you picture yourself in 1994 asking “What’s an internet?” According to Adam’s article, Blockchain technology will soon lead to a similar “seismic revolution in our society,” similar to the way the world wide interwebs has changed nearly every facet of our lives over the past 20 years.
