American businessman and co-founder of Paradigm, Fred Ehrsam, once said, “Blockchains are digital organisms. As organisms evolve through changes in their DNA, blockchain protocols evolve through changes in their code. And like biological organisms, the most adaptive blockchains will be the ones that survive and thrive.”
In recent years, blockchain technology has garnered global attention and widespread adoption across various industries and government services. Digital ledgers and blockchain-driven networks are swiftly ushering in a new era of global digital transformation, laying the foundation for industries and governments to operate in this evolving digital landscape.
