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.
