Realizing the Potential of Blockchain
The World Economic Forum released a white paper titled “Realizing the Potential of Blockchain: A Multistakeholder Approach to the Stewardship of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies” last month, which provides a structured analytical framework and taxonomy. The intended use for the survey is for industry, technical, governmental, civil society and other stakeholders to consider how they might collaborate to resolve problems and unlock opportunities beyond the reach of any single actor.
The authors state that blockchain appears likely to transform a number of important industries that supply or rely upon third-party assurance. Participants can do so by leveraging a global peer network to assure directly and transparently the integrity of value exchanged between parties.
