发刊词 | 愿为你展现不一样的区块链世界

你好,我叫Ethan,一个混迹媒体行业10年有余的草根,非常感谢你来阅读我的《5分钟闲侃区块链》。 之所以叫这个名字是因为,要把区块链所有的概念讲明白,真的是一件极难的事情。于是,我打算每期只用约1000字把一个概念讲通、讲透。一般来说,一个人正常“完全阅读+完全理解”的效率是约200字/分钟,千字恰好5分钟。是故,我的专栏便起名为《5分钟闲侃区块链》了。 言归正传,当你点看这篇文章阅读时,我猜你可能已经对区块链有所耳闻,它确实成为近年来科技圈的“热词”。尤其是2017年,以比特币为首的数字货币(虚拟货币)缔造出了一个又一个“财富神话”,瞬间将“区块链”这个不知所云地“怪物”投入了大众的视野。但当热浪退去,理性回归。越来越多的人意识到,虚拟货币的”造富“效应并没有让自己实现财富自由,“传销”、“诈骗”了了地谩骂声在区块链行业中不绝于耳。 那究竟是何原因让这个新兴科技陷入如此窘境?原因很简单——误将“区块链与比特币划上了等号。”但我想告诉你的是——其实“区块链并不等于比特币(虚拟货币)”。 在解释这一个问题前,你必须要知道一个基本问题,即“区块链技术确实诞生了比特币,但它仅仅是区块链技术在解决(去中心化)交易支付问题的一例商业应用而已”。 这好比“卜卦算命”与“通晓《易经》”一样。《易经》博大精深,它的价值是以阴阳五行的角度去解释这个世界的发展规律,而“卜卦算命”仅只是作为这个庞大体系中的一个小小功能点而已。俗话说“善易者,不易”(真正懂易经的人,是绝不轻易替人算命的)就是这个道理。 我之所以会接触到区块链,全属机缘巧合。主要是为一些项目方负责做内容方面的运营。我专业学的是新闻传播学,呆过传统媒体(电视台、杂志社),混过影视媒体(视频制作,主要为政府做企宣),就连天猫最火的那几年,也做过店长蹭过热度。不过,与之前的从业经历相比,区块链的圈子确实要有趣的多。 如今这个行业早已分化为2个立场鲜明的“圈子”,即专注于技术的“链圈”与专注虚拟货币的“币圈”。但凡事没有绝对,当你在这个圈子里时间混久了,见人见物多了,便会发现这个行业圈子其实并不大,氛围也相对还是“浮躁”的。加之各大媒体的疯狂鼓吹,使得行业中充斥着大量地过分解读。源于本人记者出身,并长期受行业“熏陶”,自然而然也生出一些自己的想法来了(无论好坏),不吐不快,这便是《5分钟闲侃区块链》的由来。 我的文章,字数不多,信息量集中,基本上属于快餐式阅读的范畴。我将穷尽本专业新闻写作“毕生所学”(新闻写作由“消息”、“通讯”与“评论”构成),有趣、有料、有品地为你讲述与解读一个“相对”真实、客观的区块链行业现状。 通过我的《5分钟闲侃区块链》 你会了解: 区块链究竟是什么? 这个“鱼龙混杂”的行业到底在做什么? 也会知道: 区块链技术有什么用? 它可能将会给我们生活带来哪些改变? 为什么区块链行业始终与虚拟货币相爱相杀? 还能懂得: 如何判断一个区块链项目的应用场景是否靠谱? 如何正确的去看带这个行业的技术发展与商业化应用等问题。 当然我也必须温馨提示:由于区块链行业就目前而言,实属一个新兴行业,对于文章内容中的观点理解在专业性方面,可能会有偏差或者不严谨,毕竟我不是技术出身,还望圈内大佬多多指点,我也是抱着一颗虔诚的态度虚心学习,诚惶诚恐。 最后,希望我的《5分钟闲侃区块链》能为你展现一个不一样的区块链世界,让我们一起认知升级。
