So in summary, here’s what blockchain-the-technology is: “Let’s create a very long sequence of small files — each one containing a hash of the previous file, some new data, and the answer to a difficult math problem — and divide up some money every hour among anyone willing to certify and store those files for us on their computers.”
The key question is does your product do new things in new ways? It is also a much more challenging question to answer than most think, primarily because we all like to think everything we’re doing is new and we’re certainly using the latest and greatest tools and techniques to do the work. So why is this so difficult? Why is this important?
Therefore, a full product offering is a portfolio of features and technologies as well as problems solved. Taken together those form the overall solution — what problem is being solved for customers and how is it solved. It is these aspects that can form a useful lens or tool with which to view your product (or proposed product).
