Blockchain and big Consulting firms

" If you’re building free proofs of concept, but you’re missing the business context around it, like regulatory, AML/KYC, tax and all the other stuff, you really aren’t servicing the client holistically,” Pawczuk went on, without naming names. “Another thing that makes me nervous is proofs-of-concepts being built by students that have never had to coexist in the environment where large high volume transaction systems do exist. Blockchain does not replace all core systems.”

I find it rather interesting the leaders and partners of these Consulting companies are worried about students and newbies doing POCs,  yet many of the big firms like Deloitte are people under 27 who aren't usually hardcore techies and computer science or Cryptography guys.  The big shot partners usually don't know anything about the latest tech.

They are good at selling it , but dig into technical conversations and it's usually a lot of keywords that sell to the masses, but if you're into the tech, you just role your eyes.  In fact, a lot of times the techies are pushed aside for the more business and charismatic biz Dev sales folks. 

   Big Consulting firms love to charge big dollars for POCs and have mostly non cs people who implement them.   Or send 26 year old communication majors  with 15 years of experience in a 5 year old Technology.    That's why she fears free POCs.  

The Deloitte's of the world are really why public blockchain systems are needed.

Help or more dystopian government control ?

Austin , Texas is piloting a program for putting the homeless population on the blockchain. Sounds great and great for society in general. There are some others around the globe attempting something similar.  There is a huge need for poor people and affordable housing as well as homelessness in many many cities and rural areas.     But will this be a program to help the homeless or a pseudo subtle attempt to control and know everything about everything and everyone by government agencies and corporations ?   I used to think a blockchain ID system was the perfect use case for many verticals and industries.  Now it's starting to look like another attempt at control by your typical governments and mega corporations.  Will it help the homeless or just be another tool to control more people?
