Google takes on Amazon and Microsoft with cloud offerings for blockchain devs

Blockchain is really entering the mainstream now.

We’ve had an internal debate here at DBC about the terminology. I’ve maintained that “blockchain” is just one way of implementing “distributed ledger” technology. But we don’t always win the Jargon Wars by being precise.

Now Google enters the fray, and they’re using the TLA “DLT”, for “Distributed Ledger Technology”. I’m going to start using DLT instead of generically saying “blockchain” (unless I’m specifically talking about that particular implementation choice).

Let’s see if “DLT” catches on.
