IBM’s upcoming blockchain release could change the internet

From TFA:

IBM has announced that it will soon release its own, open source version of blockchain software…

It’s unclear what is it that the thing does. If it’s targeted at financials, you maybe won’t get a chance to use it.
But if it’s OSS, it is likely that it will be accepted by governments and enterprises who trust IBM now. For them it wouldn’t take a leap of faith - many already run their business on OSS delivered by IBM.
