Give me €5000 and two-and-a-half days...
... and I'll reply to your email with "yes, your blockchain project is a load of bull" as well.
Fujitsu has launched a fast-track blockchain consultancy service for companies to see whether their distributed ledger plans are pie in the sky or might actually be of some commercial benefit. The Japanese giant claims its scheme, in which concept prices start at €9,900, will propose to customers a minimum viable product in …
HDAC probably should off spent 10k to tell them wasting x million on prime time TV adtime during World Cup when they don't have any product to sell yet was not a good idea.
But maybe a fridge which will automatically buy my DairyLea /Laughing cow when its low on stock with bitcoin may be useful. TM icon in case I can make some dollar out the patent
I suspect it would only allow you to order one of those two brands; which one depends upon which cheese spread manufacturer paid the fridge maker more to enter into an exclusive agreement.
This shouldn't be a problem though, if (say) your Hotpoint fridge only allowed you to buy Dairylea, you could simply get round that by buying a Zanussi fridge (with its integrated "Laughing Cow" reorder button) to go alongside it.
And that's how technology makes our lives more convenient.
It will cost you €150,000, but I do offer a much more rigorous analysis which takes 2-3 weeks, and rather than just telling you it is a load of bull, I can recommend additional services, at extra cost, to rectify any problems with your business plan. This could include recommendations of alternative technologies where blockchain isn't the most optimal solution.
Skimping on the costs for preparing the business plan is never a good idea, so you should always be prepared to pay good money for a good service.
Register the website.
Pay €50, upload your business plan in pdf format.
Site comes up with various clock symbols and the words "working on it" (unless MS has already trademarked that).
Then it comes up with the word "Yes" in 72pt.
The uploaded pdfs are then available for anybody who wants a laugh/wants to propose a scam to some marks.
I can't see any obvious flaws, but also I'm a bit afraid to try it in case it starts to turn a big profit and attracts unwelcome attention from the fine, upstanding citizens who pump Bitcoin.
Even if the answer is yes, it might still be rubbish.
Let's take Monster Cables as an example
People are no longer buying their overpriced cables
Create a new MonsterCoin that people can use to purchase their cables
Why don't I buy their cables? Is it because I have to get out my MasterCard to pay for them?
No. I do buy cables, and I pay for them using my MasterCard, just not from Monster.
Would it be easier to buy my cables if I had to first buy a special payment instrument that can only be used to purchase cables from Monster?
The business plan is complete b*******
The fundamental concept of a block chain is sound, but the hype of everything that is a block chain should be a "crypto-currency" is hype and bollocks.
For instance, a "chain" of video frames, where each frame contains a signature of its predecessor, is a good thing. But unless those video frames are useful, like BOFH blackmail, then its use as a currency is rather limited.
So: is your data useful? No? A blockchain won't help.
a blockchain is a bit more than a linked list; it's a linked list with a cryptographic hash that makes it difficult to modify old blocks.
of course, version control systems like git (and even git got the idea from monotone, and maybe it's turtles all the way), have been doing this for years before "bitcoin", so I am in no way claiming that difference is new with blockchain!
"a blockchain is a bit more than a linked list; it's a linked list with a cryptographic hash that makes it difficult to modify old blocks."
I know it's more than a linked list; I was just amused at how iterations of a technology (with improvements) become the Next Big Thing shortly before it turns out that, in fact, they are not. See also NOSql.
It sounds like HTC could use Fujitsu's services:
"We understand the potential of digital scarcity and uniqueness. With Exodus, HTC aims to be a general blockchain asset marketplace," said Chen. "We believe there is a paradigm shift and the pendulum is swinging back to ownership and the value of content."
