I see all these companies interested in the Blockchain technology. What will happen to Bitcoin itself if only the Blockchain is adopted for use? More importantly, what will happen to the miners?

Well I don't think anything will happen to Bitcoin or miners at all , depends on the area though
If they are using Blockchain for making a game or something , how that will affect Bitcoin in anyway ?  Huh

Why would anything happen? Bitcoin will go on regardless and the other companies will use their own blockchains and tech. If they plan to use our Bitcoin blockchain in some way then I'm sure they'll have to pay the appropriate fees.

unless they work on their own blockchain, which seems exactly the case, this will not be so different than having a random altcoin, in the altcoin section, but maybe centralized, which is even worse

if they will follow this strategy, i don't think they will gain much in the end...

not to mention that their altcoin if it isn't centralized, it need to have a big network to be secure, otherwise we can just destroy it with few asic  Grin

ING Bank Amsterdam has been experimenting with private blockchains without using Bitcoin. They have also been experimenting with a Ripple network clone, but without using ripples (XRP coins). Creating a network of nodes controlled by a centralized bank is much easier than creating a network of nodes controlled by nobody. There are advantages and disadvantages to both centralized and decentralized systems. The banks might want a centralized system that uses blockchain technology because they will not be worried about the risk their centralized system will be shut down by a government.

Blockchain is worthless without bitcoin, e.g. Litecoin blockchain is weaker than Bitcoin as the incentive to keep the network stronger is less valuable. Bitcoin is blessed with the magic of Satoshi.

As a member of BitcoinTalk, you are surrounded by legends; phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. The forum was created by Satoshi Nakamoto and saw the first exchange, the first altcoin, and the first ICO, but also catastrophic software flaws, massive thefts, and incredible scams. You too have an opportunity to become part of the forum's history: whether and in what way you do so is up to you.

yes, they can make their own altcoin/blockchain - i guess they have an Intranet too  - no problem.  Wink

Originally $800 for my first 2 miners. From there I used BTC to purchase additional miners. It is easier for me because I don't pay for electric.

How long it has been since you invested the original $800 ? And who pays for the electricity ?

I think most companies are looking for ways to use the blockchain technology without using bitcoin. They want to harness the advantage of a decentralised database without loosing control of it. The most difficult problem is the security of their blockchain. They want as many miners as possible but miners need to be rewarded for mining. Who is going to mine when there is no reward involved?

you can not seperate bitcoin from its bloackchain they are the same thing and can not use one without the other.

although using blockchain technology is something else, and using blockchain to create a new one for themselves doesn't affect bitcoin.

When these companies refer to the "Blockchain" they are acctually saying the technology behind it.

If they develop their own technology/protocol based on the concept of the Bitcoin Blockchain, it might have a negative affect, IF people are forced to use their technology.

Governments could implement NEW regulations forcing people to abandon the Bitcoin Blockchain and to use the NEW technology. {Chinese}

The Bitcoin Blockchain would take a beating, because the transactions will decrease, IF less people use it. The miners will also get less transaction fees.

So you have a valid concern in my opinion. In my experience people will go in the opposite direction, when they are forced to do something. {Black markets}
