Have you had your first transaction in cryptocurrency yet? With developing countries starting to accept bitcoin and several central banks creating their own national cryptocurrencies, what seemed like a dystopian future seems to be only a matter of months away for most of us. Indeed, we are surrounded by applications of the blockchain. From traceability to the internet of things, smart contracts, digital identities or even the multiverse, the use cases seem endless. If you are like me, you might still be wondering how a digital bored ape avatar NFT can be worth millions of dollars, but even on this, I might be missing something. One thing is for sure, blockchain is there to stay, so let’s dive in.
In this issue of This Week in Consulting, we explore how blockchain works, the biggest trends in blockchain, and which industries can benefit the most from it, from banking to logistics.
Enjoy the read. Feel free to comment. Would love to hear your views.
