I love this blockchain space which I accidentally discovered creating a patient portal for my cloud-based practice management system! I truly believe Blockchains will replace many of the systems we use today and I hope to influence the creation of some of them.
My first blockchain project, mycryptons, is a platform for trading non-fungible tokens on the Ethereum blockchain (Oh what fun writing in Solidity )
As a user of blockchain technology (ethereum, stellar amongst others), I feel strongly that IDEs and other dev tools greatly influence the acceptance of a blockchain platform. Remix and Truffle are excellent tools scaffolding a (rather) primitive language - Solidity.
Here is a recent article that caught my eye - https://towardsdatascience.com/how-blockchains-will-enable-privacy-1522a846bf65
