Author Don Tapscott recently helped kick off the TED Summit in Banff, Alberta, with a lecture about blockchain technology.
Released today, the video finds Tapscott reviewing points from his most recent book, "Blockchain Revolution," published earlier this year and co-authored by his son, Alex Tapscott.
In remarks, Tapscott sticks to discussing the technology broadly and in terms that seek to communicate what he views as the coming wave of innovation spurred by the creation of the bitcoin blockchain and digital assets.
Tapscott is currently hosting a blockchain workshop in Ontario, Canada, with Hyperledger's Brian Behlendorf, ConsenSys' Joe Lubin and about a dozen others.
A video of that presentation has just been published to TED's website and is now making the rounds on social media.
