Blockchain technology is a potentially multi-trillion dollar technology and has already begun to revolutionize the way we conduct business, make money, and interact with each other online, among a wide variety of other use cases. As a result, more and more entrepreneurs are considering starting a business or transitioning their existing business into the blockchain space. Like any new industry, the blockchain sector comes with its own set of opportunities and challenges for entrepreneurs.
Here are some of the most common opportunities blockchain has to offer entrepreneurs.
Blockchain is a significant potential disruptor, and is in fact the catalyst behind Web3, the next stage of evolution of the internet. Blockchain is also disrupting other industries as well, such as finance. Blockchain can enable peer-to-peer transactions without the need for intermediaries, such as banks or credit card companies, which if widely adopted will cause significant damage to banks’ and other financial institutions’ bottom lines. The decentralized nature of blockchain can also help reduce transaction costs and increase efficiency. This offers a wide open door to tech savvy entrepreneurs who want to be active players in the evolution of fintech.
As blockchain is still in its early stages, there is still a lot of room for growth and innovation, and the space is wide open for those who want to be early adopters of this new tech! Entrepreneurs who are able to identify and capitalize on untapped opportunities in the blockchain space can gain a significant advantage over their competitors. Crypto mining is a sector that is currently undergoing lightning fast evolution. Crypto mining refers to the generation of new cryptocurrencies by solving complex mathematical problems. Crypto mining requires high powered computers and expert maintenance — not to mention a lot of electricity. 0 Percent is playing an active role in cryptocurrency mining, through our Cryptocurrency Income Accelerator (CIA) program, where we connect you to existing crypto mining infrastructure and get you started on mining your own coins!
The blockchain space has attracted significant investment from venture capital firms and other investors. This can provide entrepreneurs with the capital they need to launch and grow their businesses.
The regulatory landscape for blockchain businesses is still evolving, and it can be difficult for entrepreneurs and big businesses alike to navigate. In spite of significant capital investment in the blockchain space, the overall uncertainty of the technology and its wider applications creates a noticeable drawback in the amount of capital that would otherwise likely be invested in this space.
As it currently stands, blockchain space is still an emerging technology, and although it has grown immensely since its inception in 2009, it still has a long way to go in terms of becoming a ubiquitous tech. At present there is a shortage of experienced professionals with the necessary skills to build and maintain blockchain-based systems, which can make it more difficult for entrepreneurs to find the talent they need to grow their business.
Blockchain technology can be complex and difficult to understand, which can be a challenge for entrepreneurs who are looking to position themselves as problem solvers for their clients. If their clients have little or no understanding of the underlying technology, this makes it more difficult to convince them of its practical applications.
While blockchain’s disruptive nature is an opportunity and a blessing for some, it is simultaneously a challenge for others — specifically well established big business. Similar to Uber being a major disruptor to the taxi industry, blockchain can have a similar effect across many sectors if enough entrepreneurs successfully implement the emerging tech into existing business models.
