Why Blockchain?

As we were developing our Blockchain Developer Nanodegree program, we heard a great deal of excitement—and hype—about blockchain technology. We became fascinated with the stories of the people behind the tech who are using blockchain to address the problems they see in the world around them. We wanted to tell these stories, and explore the motivations and ideas of the incredible people who are building fresh solutions from the ground up; new solutions that could one day impact our daily lives.
