If you’ve been following along, you’ve learned what the terms “blockchain” and “Bitcoin” mean in Part 1, and read several investors’ views on the blockchain and cryptocurrency space in Boston for Part 2.
In Part 3, ten companies were profiled on what they are doing with blockchain and cryptocurrency technology. It wasn’t an exhaustive list, but it was a collection of startups that are utilizing this growing technology in unique, and not to mention significant, ways.

In nearly every interview over the course of my research, I asked the interview subject, “What are your predictions for this space?” There were a handful of recurring guesses from investors and entrepreneurs, such as opinions on initial coin offerings (ICOs) to what kind of industries will be rising up through this technology.
I’ve compiled the interviews from various entrepreneurs, investors, as well as others involved with the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector on what they think will come next.
“I think 90% of the altcoins on the market will go to zero within three years, but the good companies will stick around and thrive,” said Cognate Founder and CEO Bennett Collen. “I think Boston is well positioned to be a leader in the space since we have such a strong pool of talent.“
