What is blockchain good for?

It's good for pretty much anything that might need decentralization, anything that currently requires trusting a 3rd party (such as voting, property management, banking, etc). It's really a way to allow transparency in a system and remove the need for an intermediary

That's great but how do you solve the Oracle problem?

That's a really great question, but currently, we don't have a solution in mind, as we haven't reached that point in development as of yet. We've been focusing on having contract code work seamlessly with the blockchain + peer to peer network.

I'll make sure to update this post + tag you in a comment once we reach the point where we've thought it out and figured out a good solution! And at that point it would be great to have you poke some holes in our implementation if you're willing, it's always good to have more eyes on the code!
