The first question has to be "Why?"

I actively have to damp down my own love of new and shiny tech and techniques to remind myself what we're actually trying to do. Why is the new approach better than using something off the shelf? Why choose a technology where you need to pay premium for niche skills rather than premium for experience? If you can't answer that why to the satisfaction of all your stakeholders then stop.

Otherwise you're just blockchain.
