Abstract
There are many opinions that the credible exchange of data will be at the heart of many processes during the coming fourth industrial revolution. For this reason, in finance, insurance, and logistics, blockchain technology is regarded as the next huge disruptive force. Up close, the state of the entire blockchain domain is not as rosy as it seems. There are many problems with schema replication, with inferior or slightly modified schema replication versions emerging in an endless stream. Why technologists and managers with the best intentions cannot bring a better experience to the world? Few existing blockchain platforms have been successful, but what are the reasons for their success? The charm of blockchain attracts unlimited capital and technology investment and triggers a series of emotional reactions and public discussions. How do these events affect the world in turn? There are many developers and leaders who are trying to challenge the status quo and innovate. Some of them are committed to shaping the scene and designing the interfaces of blockchain applications, while others are bent on trying to influence the current social functioning system. They do this work for the purpose of rationalizing the foundations of trust in finance or other business, thereby improving people's quality of life. However, the results are often far from the original intentions. Regarding the blockchain events occurring between 2009 and 2019 as an experiment in participatory design, this paper analyzes the characteristics and trends of the times, the community's response, social discussions, and application examples. Finally, it is concluded that network applications based on the blockchain will be further developed, the corresponding legal system should be improved faster, and the human spirit of the contract needs to be updated and further improved so as to strive to become masters of the times.
