Abstract:

No longer at proof-of-concept or pilot stage, blockchain applications are changing processes and practices for the better in business and society. This research reports on the status of transformational projects for registering assets, tracking the flow of assets, automating contract administration, and streamlining industry workflows in construction, insurance, mining, retail, and transportation. It features a case study of the UK based company Circulor, which has transformed the cobalt chain of custody for good. Finally, the authors anticipate the long-term impact of blockchain technology on global financial markets, identity management, and the Internet of Things. There is no turning back to old ways of operating.
