Gartner expects blockchain to top $300 billion by 2030. BLOCKCHAIN, the shared-ledger technology that only a few years ago seemed indelibly linked in the public imagination to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, is assuming a new role: gatekeeper in the emerging “trust economy.” Establishing trust in an enterprise requires a careful evaluation of the technology that claims to provide it and the impact its adoption has across the enterprise including front-, back- and middle-office operations.

This presentation will examine the follow questions:

  • Why trust is an issue in enterprises?
  • How does blockchain establish trust?
  • What are consensus algorithms and why are there so many?
  • What platforms are available?
  • How do I evaluate one for my needs?
