Blockchain Security Spoof – BloxyChain – The Digital Secure-It-All!
Why we created this – The Director’s Notes
There is a lot of hype on the market around Crypto-currency and Blockchain security. The market hype has catapulted Blockchain from what it is (a validation protocol for transactions) to something its not (security for entire applications platforms) or Blockchain security. Every presentation on Crypto and Blockchain these days has at least one slide, and often many more, on all the ways the particular Blockchain security can be used.
For security to be effective for the entire platform, it needs many components something Blockchain security does not do. These components also have to come together properly and with expertise so they can deliver on the protection that platforms require. However many of the people hyping Blockchain security’s virtues are most likely not security experts, and may confusingly refer to a one dimensional aspect of digital ledger in a much broader and robust way than is actually the case.
With this SKIT we are, in a good natured way, poking fun at all the confusing information floating around in the Blockchain Security Zeitgeist. We do this by drawing parallels with the infomercial hype men commonly part of the As-Seen-On-TV family. Here you can see Billy Mays, one of the most recognized hype-men, pitching Oxiclean: Original Billy Mays OxiClean Ad from October 2000. In these infomercials the viewers are overwhelmed with all the problems their product solves by a frenzied host with a focus on getting them to ACT NOW!
We hope you enjoy this.
