Hi everyone, 
This week’s lead piece is about blockchain. In it, I attempt to illustrate a strategy to get wider industry adoption. In short: we need more example cases and strong branding & PR of initiatives to create a carrot. With wider buy-in, that carrot becomes a stick. Read it here
Bonus piece about something more fun: rhyming. We’ve all deserved something lighter after last week’s rollercoaster. 
The line-up for Saturday’s panel in Ghent is now complete: Bas, Basto, and Sebastien. 🙃 
Enjoy all the reads. 
Love, 
Bas
