The foundational queries innovative developers and IT managers must ask when looking to integrate blockchain technology into enterprise.
Here are what we believe to be the most pertinent blockchain use cases for enterprises and governments
Blockchain technology has fundamentally changed the way financial institutions are exchanging value and building market infrastructure. Here’s a closer look at how this new technology is transforming capital markets and the specific benefits for a wide range of market participants.
Central Bank Digital Currencies CBDC
CBDCs offer central banks unique advantages at the retail and wholesale levels, including increased financial access for individual customers and a more efficient infrastructure for interbank settlements.
A blockchain-based digital identity system provides a unified, interoperable, and tamper-proof infrastructure with key benefits to enterprises, users, and IoT management systems. The solution ensures protection against theft, assures companies storing customer information, and provides individuals greater sovereignty over their data.
Energy and Sustainability
Oil and gas companies suffer from siloed infrastructures and several issues concerning transparency, efficiency, and optimization. Enterprise-grade blockchain solutions can significantly increase process efficiencies and reduce costs associated with oil and gas operations and distribution.
Financial services struggle with archaic operational processes, slow payment settlements, limited transparency, and security vulnerabilities. Blockchain enhances the efficient digitization of financial instruments, which increases liquidity, lowers cost of capital, and reduces counterparty risk.
Government and the Public Sector
Ethereum’s encrypted ledger and smart contracts allow governments to build trust, improve accountability and responsiveness, increase efficiency, reduce costs, and create high-performing government functions with more secure, agile, and cost-effective structures.
Healthcare and the Life Sciences
Blockchain-based healthcare solutions will enable faster, more efficient, and more secure medical data management and medical supply tracking. This could significantly improve patient care, facilitate the advancement to medical discoveries, and ensure the authenticity of drugs circulating global markets.
An enterprise-grade blockchain solution can alleviate the heavily-manual processes of today’s legal system. Enterprise Ethereum will help address the estimated 9.8% loss in total productivity that manual operations costs a law firm every year by providing accessibility, transparency, cost savings, speed, efficiency, and data integrity.
Media and Entertainment
Piracy, fraud, and intellectual property theft of digital items cost the entertainment industry an estimated $71 billion annually. Blockchain technology can create a distributed ledger to track the life cycle of any content, which has the potential to drastically reduce piracy of intellectual property, protect digital content, and facilitate the distribution of authentic digital collectibles.
Enterprise Ethereum enables the digitization of assets and financial instruments. This enables fractionalization of ownership, expanded access to global markets, increased liquidity, and democratized access to real estate investment opportunities.
Retail Fashion and Luxury
The pace of the retail fashion and luxury industry is rapidly accelerating with the ever-changing demands of consumers. Blockchain technology stands to address long-standing industry challenges by improving data management tools, enhancing supply chain operations, and reducing the risk of counterfeit and grey markets.
Blockchains lend themselves to re-establishing fairness in a modern economy of continual exploitation. An estimated 20-25% of funds globally are lost to corruption at the government level, intermediaries take up to 7% of global remittances, and modern fintech solutions fail to include the 1.7 billion global unbanked adults.
Sports and Esports
Ethereum enabled smart contracts can streamline existing esports operations, provide new revenue models, and enhance fan engagement with enhanced loyalty programs and incentives.
Supply Chain Management
Distributed ledger infrastructure stands to address the challenges of existing global supply chains that are inefficient, poorly tracked, and oftentimes exploitative. Blockchain facilitates accurate asset tracking, enables enhanced licensing of services, products, and software, and ultimately improves transparency into the provenance of consumer goods, from sourcing all the way to the point of consumption.
Global capital markets handle billions of dollars in syndicated loans annually. The large size of these loans requires the involvement of many banks and financial entities, resulting in increased liability and cost from manual stakeholder coordination. Blockchain technology digitization and standardization provides solutions unique to the problems faced by the syndicated loans market.
