In the middle of a dinner and probably without thinking that it would influence me so much, between two conversations I heard this sentence and it marked me forever in the head.
“The most disruptive entrepreneurs who will change the world in four years THEY DO NOTHING, sorry if they are doing something very important and perhaps more valuable than any other task, they are freed from all burdens and paradigms using their time to learn”.
The sentence also reaffirmed me in what I believed for a long time and in my work of promoting with all my might NWC10Lab to help SUPER PIONEERS crypto and blockchain technology with real projects, as is the case of Leif Ferreira CEO of Bit2Me, a project that I had the chance to help since its inception. What better way to learn anything than to participate in the trend of the last four yearsthus succeeding in building a community of thousands of people who had the same concern as me, who also help these entrepreneurs.
And where do these people learn? Where is the change happening today? who to learn then?. Interestingly, blockchain technology is probably the first big change of mankind whose knowledge does not come from books, universities, institutions or even the military industry as some advances have done before. For the first time, knowledge is generated globally through innovator connections freed up of their time, and devote it to research, and something curious, even giving up working in a company because they may feel like they are learning nothing or not being able to explore innovations that their environment does not yet understand .
The complexity with which the world advances makes the resistance to change presented by any disruptive innovation can break down its barriers to adoption in a few months as lived events such as COVID have shown us, and therefore the need to listen and learn from those people we still have We do not have enough references to validate your knowledge or intentions.
In the midst of this change, from whom are we learning now?
When interest in certain social issues exceeds knowledge there are about this, and there are cases like the one experienced a few weeks ago where thousands of people want to learn about a new subject in a place too familiar to learn something complex. That’s when the alarms go off.
And how do you know which knowledge is correct? How to differentiate the source from which we learn? It’s not easy in an environment where innovation or knowledge of our industry is born directly from YouTube, from private Telegram groups, they’re in Discord Communities, it’s in open source repositories like Github and oddly enough that’s not is NOT in books or universities or institutions; the speed with which everything happens means that change must be learned almost in real time, almost on the fly.
The world of crypto and blockchain shows how the greatest disruptions in our society are already in front of us without appreciating them and are created by people who, in many cases, have not found in the education system this curiosity or this knowledge to innovate.
The world of crypto and blockchain also demonstrates the importance and responsibility of the entire technology industry to bring all its knowledge to society through trusted sources for the citizen, This is going to take some work, but it is VERY IMPORTANT to take firm action on this.
From my humble opinion and daily input (and from here inviting anyone who can help), I think the biggest challenge to promote learning that the entire crypto industry has right now , part of collaborate with universitiesinstitutions and companies; first build trust with them, and then work hard to have these recognized entities can become trusted sources on change and the futurefor the whole of society as they have been until now, and in some cases for hundreds of years.
The unknown always brings new challenges: let’s build together, the future and change needs everyone.
