Why is blockchain shoehorned everywhere? There are almost always simple technical solutions.

I feel like 99% of the uses of blockchain are for products that can very simply be done without it. Aren't investors smart enough to know the products can be made without the unnecessary cruft shoehorned in?

    Markets dont differente between value, perceived value, and perviced perceived value. If a block chain project increases perceived value (even if it is technically idiotic) companies should implement it.

  • VC's are running out of ideas and have a lot of powder sitting to be deployed. Plus most drink coolaids on each other primarily on cyclical nature of tech. They see DDL as the next phase

    I had the same question. Two pitches I heard can be solved without block chain. Block chain did not add any value.
    There is VC money looking to invest in block chain. This appears to be the primary motivation.
