Blockchain has already started to revolutionize ways of doing business. Many policy makers and business leaders see it as a means of bringing greater trust and transparency to digital environments. Gartner has estimated that blockchain could generate as much as $3.1 trillion in new business value by 2030, half of it by 2025 with applications designed for operational improvement.
The potential of blockchain to engender wide-ranging changes in the economy, industry and society is currently being explored across sectors and by a variety of organizations. Companies in industries as diverse as finance, healthcare, energy, food or logistics are engaging in a wave of blockchain experiments. Startups are also developing solutions.
Besides improving operational efficiency, blockchain solutions will allow us to redesign business relationships, monetarize illiquid assets, and redistribute existing data and value flows in ways that can transform how businesses operate and engage in a digital world.
