Things You Can’t Build On a Blockchain

I will admit that I have personally been guilty of this too, of harping on the innumerable use cases of Blockchain technology, without sparing much thought to the things it cannot do.

There have been occasions when we have discussed the shortcomings of the technology and the concerns it breeds but hardly ever have we focused on assessing what blockchain fails at. You might think it is a useless endeavour, considering it does not lead us to find profitable avenues of application. However, I strongly believe that knowing what it does not work for can help us be slightly more mindful of how we can apply blockchain, without wasting opportunities or resources in a futile direction.
