Java will facilitate mainstream blockchain adoption

Adoption remains one of blockchain’s largest obstacles. Critics often point out blockchain’s lack of real-world usability as one of its main barriers to wide-scale use and broad adoption by various industries. In order for blockchains and cryptocurrencies to realize their full utility and leverage their full value, our space will need to focus on adoption in an immediate sense. The tires of this vehicle, in other words, need to meet the pavement successfully.

While crypto enthusiasts already believe in an on-chain future, existing institutions such as banks and Silicon Valley companies need to be fully convinced before this new technology truly reconfigures the architecture of our everyday lives. The only way to accomplish this, however, will be to win the support of dedicated computer scientists who are willing to code smart contracts.

At its core, then, adoption must make distributed computing systems available to everyday legacy coders. In order to build the future, our architects need to be able to read the blueprints. Even the tech-savvy have trouble explaining what smart contracts are: why should we force developers to learn a new, specialized language like Ethereum’s Solidity just to build a simple contract? For these reasons, Cypherium has chosen to run on Java, the most popular coding language in the world.
