Internet Protocol version 6 or IPv6 is trying to usher in the next era of the Internet. In combination with blockchain technology, it could be the biggest revolution the world has seen in decades. This is according to Latif Ladid, who says: CoinGeek Backstage he thinks this revolution will be bigger than the arrival of wireless internet.
Ladid is the president of the 5G World Alliance and the president of the IPv6 forum† He joined CoinGeek Backstage host Becky Liggero on the sidelines of the Global IEEE 5G-IoT Blockchain Summit, which was held in Morocco. He was one of the speakers at the event next to people like dr. Craig Wright and the founder of the BSV Blockchain Association, Jimmy Nguyen.
For Ladi, IPv6 is a great passion that drives him every day, “and if you have such a passion for something, you never have to work a day in your life.”
He stated that IPv6’s integration with blockchain technology is one of the advancements that will define this generation.
“It’s bigger than the wireless Internet revolution,” he said.
One of the people who share Ladid’s passion for IPv6 is Dr. wright. As he has revealed on several occasionsIPv6 was originally included in Bitcoin because he envisioned a world where peer-to-peer connections and interactions were not limited by the limitations of the Internet. However, when he stepped away and put other developers in charge of Bitcoin, IPv6 was one of the first things they took away.
Ladi said that through his research on IPv6 about Dr. Wright heard, and he emailed him about it. “I got an answer within 5 minutes and I know he doesn’t respond to anyone.” Since then, they have worked together to push the IPv6 and BSV blockchain forward and have called several events together.
Ladid has nothing but praise and admiration for Satoshi. First, he admires how Dr. Wright wants to be a perpetual student, which Ladid finds “pretty rare for someone who should be running his own businesses.” He is very disciplined and has no time for nonsense.”
IPv6 has its fair share of challenges and barriers. However, Ladi believes they pale in comparison to what the current Internet protocol, IPv4, had in its early days.
The first big step to making IPv6 the ubiquitous Internet protocol is through education. Ladidi has led a series of events to spread the word about why the world needs IPv6. He revealed that he has more events planned in Japan, the United States and Canada in the future.
