Blockchain

Why is blockchain technology gaining momentum?

Blockchain – the technology behind the bitcoin digital currency – has gone from being a potential pipedream for the future of financial services to a legitimate application for businesses worldwide. It is currently being utilised across many industries, from property sales to environmental conservation, as a real-world commercial opportunity for organisations to put into operation right now. The challenge for those not already on board lies in understanding how to capitalise on the boundless business promise now within reach.

Over the following three articles, we provide an analysis of blockchain: from its anonymous inception right up to the current day, complete with real-world business examples. We explore how blockchain has been put into practice as part of live, commercial business solutions and how such organisations have been successful in implementing a new technology that many are still currently wary of.
