The evolution of crypto can be analyzed from the essential components of design, development, and deployment. For modern systems to function, they require a combination of people, process and technology. These elements also set the foundations of modern innovation.
Crypto-anarchists envision a free-rule zone for autonomous businesses and unconstrained virtual currencies. Anyone who denies these programmatic rules essentially forfeits their right to participate. In this second article, the crypto power hierarchy will be defined as a basis for understanding its governance in contrast to the real world.
This series is presented in three parts and will analyze society’s paradigm shift in behavior and present a vision for the future. In this first article, the creation of virtual communities is explored, fueled by blockchain innovation and explores the evolution of the crypto sphere.

The blockchain is the underlying technology behind all cryptocurrency. In its simplest form, it is a marketplace for digital payments and asset exchange. Rather than a central authority, a database of transactions is managed by a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) network.

Areas such as retail, trade, logistics and syndicated loans remain incredibly convoluted with many phases of verification and confirmations before transactions are completed. Blockchain tech can streamline these processes and bring similar value to what the internet did for the information age.
Mankind has been shaped by borders, whether physical, geographical, technological or financial. Societies have found ways to structure themselves into coherent and ordered blocks. Over the last few centuries empires have risen and fallen, wars have been waged and physical borders have moved.
One of the great surprises of the blockchain revolution is that banks continue to occupy a near monopolistic position within financial services, despite their obvious and much publicised inadequacies.
For centuries, the exchanges of London, New York, Frankfurt and Tokyo have dominated the buying and selling of equities, commodities and other asset classes. Although technology has improved over the years and people can engage with these markets from the comfort of their own home, the core premise of a centralised exchange has remained the same.
In the revolution of emerging blockchain technologies, shifting from legacy models and habits to embrace this paradigm shift, occurs in iterations. Arguably, the most significant aspect of blockchain is decentralisation, which allows for programmable trust, distributed ownership, and removes the necessity for third party arbitration.

The Blockchain is a distributed public ledger of all transactions that have ever been sent with Bitcoin. In fact, Bitcoin itself is nothing more than just records on this ledger, by tracing the history of each single coin in the network since its creation and to the latest owner, any user can tell who owns Bitcoins, and how many.
Adel, a global cryptocurrency, community-based project funded platform, is aiming to create a decentralized and self-sustaining macroeconomic ecosystem for Blockchain innovation.
ICOs are a new paradigm of fundraising, in use with many young Blockchain-based startups. During one, the company in question releases a cryptocurrency token and sells a part of the total supply to its intended audience.
Traditional venture capitalists don’t understand blockchain, according to Adel Co-Founder Gabriel Dusil. In an interview with IBS Intelligence, he cited the lack of familiarisation with the technology as a reason why blockchain startups struggle to achieve funding.
