State of Blockchain

Book description

This is a bird’s-eye view of the booming blockchain industry, with real-life stories of how the technology is currently used. Ideal for business technology leaders familiar with blockchain, this report explains how this technology might fit within your enterprise and gives you a better sense of whether you’re too early, too late, or right on time.

Written by Sir John Hargrave, CEO of blockchain media company Media Shower, and blockchain consultant Evan Karnoupakis, this report explains how leading financial and technology companies are investing heavily in this new Internet of Money. And while bitcoin still leads the way, the race is on for "stablecoins" pegged to traditional currencies.

Divided into three sections, this report includes:

  • Blockchain in the economy: Understand the state of the digital asset market—bitcoin and altcoins—and how they’re reshaping the world economy.
  • Blockchain in the enterprise: Learn where blockchain adoption stands among industries and get hype-free snapshots of early use cases.
  • How to prepare: Explore practical recommendations for how corporate technology leaders can best prepare for entering the new world of blockchain.
