Developers think blockchain lives up to the hype but most haven't built any products or services with the technology, according to a new survey from Stack Overflow.

Stack Overflow surveyed almost 700 developers to understand how software engineers are thinking about blockchain. The survey found that 61% of respondents think blockchain is a game changer, while 38% think it doesn't live up to the hype. 

Only 24% have built anything with blockchain but 62% of respondents want to do so. Survey respondents who had built with blockchain were more optimistic about its potential.
