@wmougayar:

Newsflash *** Your current cloud is about to get rattled by a little shake-up. There is a new emerging computing cloud that is virtual and doesn’t require servers setup, because it runs on the blockchain’s infrastructure. Do you see the Blockchain infrastructure as powering a new kind of "thin cloud"?]]>
