The world of blockchain is ablaze with novel ideas. Some are taking well-established business practices and trying to mold them into the blockchain universe. Others are trying to create totally new paths to success. Investors are always looking at the business potentials of these new blockchain ideas. But there are lots of fun and cool stuff happening. It’s worth taking a breather to enjoy some of the cool blockchain applications.
The First Blockchain Marriage
Diamonds are forever, so are blockchains. So entrepreneur David Mondrus and his wife Joyce Bayo decided to record their wedding vows on the bitcoin blockchain. It is the world’s first “Bitmarriage”. During the Kingdom Bitcoin Conference, the marriage was recorded using a Disney World bitcoin ATM. Even though this is the first marriage on the blockchain, it can turn into a trend. Businesses are already experimenting with real-estate and mortgage applications, so putting marriage certificates on the blockchain seems like a viable proposition.
Charities with Blockchain
Giving to others is part of our humanity. However, when we are giving to charity, we have to put blind faith that our money will really help the needy. There have been past problems with various charity organizations. If you are skeptical about trusting them, you are not alone. So blockchain-based applications are stepping up to help provide transparency to the charity process. With applications like Bitgive and Alice, you can see how your donations are being used. It’s really cool to know that your efforts are achieving real good in the world.
Breaking Down the Barriers of “Echo Chambers”
Social media was supposed to bring us together. But it has started to fragment societies throughout the world. The information segregation that is happening threatens all of us. So MIT researchers are looking at peer-to-peer protocol IPFS and Blockstack to find ways to give users more control over the information. The research team will report the finding soon. It wouldn’t solve all the problems in the world of media and political discourse. But at least, the smartest people in the world are trying. And that is cool!
Spaceships on Blockchain
Some blockchain developers don’t believe that “Sky is the limit.” So they are going into space. SpaceChain is trying to build a blockchain-based operating system that can help with the next-generation of satellite networks. Also, SpaceChain has started a calendar for future space missions. That’s a gutsy move.
“Starving artist” is almost a universally accepted concept. So artists need the help of fellow artists and art lovers everywhere. Amplicative Art is a reciprocity-based social platform that will help the art community support each other and create the art of tomorrow.
Building Virtual Worlds
When you are playing a virtual video world game, you are in someone else’s territory. Until now, all virtual worlds have been controlled by some company. Not anymore. Decentraland is a virtual world built with a decentralized design on the Ethereum blockchain. It means no company can impose rules on the world. It is free from the censorship of any single entity. Pretty cool!
Blockchain technology isn’t all serious business. There are a lot of opportunities to have fun. Enjoy your time on the blockchain. It’s revolutionizing the world while making it a cooler place too.
