The world produces over 2.5 quint billion bytes of data every single day. However, only a small percentage of this data is being analysed and used for the advancement of Artificial Intelligence. There are many constraints that revolve around the stigma of data sharing, especially in areas like privacy and provenance. In what ways can the introduction of blockchain address this situation?
As blockchain technology matures, businesses are now pushing their pilots into production, and even more are announcing their commitment to exploring blockchain solutions. New alliances, protocols, and services have emerged dedicated to simplifying the blockchain development process. At the top, global business leaders are committed to realising the potential of a blockchain-enabled world. But what are the realities for the developers that do the work of building on blockchain? The ease of use of blockchain development technology, resources, and tools are crucial in ensuring the adoption of enterprise blockchain.

All cryptocurrencies by design are built on public blockchains (aka public distributed ledgers), otherwise they would be simply private ledgers. The data in these blockchains are not easy to access or understand. A group of open source developers are working on Blockchain ETL, a project to make the data accessible and amenable to analysis. We'll take a look at the details of what this project does and how it works, as well as what the resulting data can be used for.
