January 3rd 2009 marked the beginning of a new era of globalization and world
interconnection when the first Bitcoin transaction was conducted. Satoshi
Nakamoto made possible what was once thought to be impossible – a currency
and payment system not controlled by any person or organization. We know this
currency as Bitcoin and the underlying technology that powers it as Blockchain.
It has been 8 years since people started using Bitcoin, but only now are we
beginning to understand the real potential of the blockchain technology on
which Bitcoin is founded. Blockchain does to economic processes what the
Internet has done to information: today, anyone can have access to the global
economy on equal terms with others. In this document we talk about IEP, a
multipurpose blockchain platform made for users.
