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.

The startup’s system offers farmers a number of services, and access to global markets and banks. Using blockchain technology, it provides registered farmers with a unique digital identification number, which makes the farmers key players in the supply chain, and gives them access to financial services, logistics, insurance and other services.  
The farmers can also tokenize their assets, making peer-to-peer trading easier and giving them further access to the commodities market. This digital system provides the farmers with several benefits; the data is inherently trustworthy, so the entire supply chain is more transparent and traceable, and it also simplifies record keeping, so it is easi…
