The Back End of Blockchain

The tech behind the craze.

  • Everyone’s talking about how blockchain is a transformational technology.
  • Organizations fear they risk getting left behind if they are slow to adopt.
  • Production-ready blockchain products and services don’t yet exist.
  • Skilled blockchain developers are unicorns, while snake oil “blockchain” vendors are a dime a dozen.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Blockchain is a scalpel, not a Swiss Army knife. Blockchain is a tool that works to solve trust problems.
  • PoC must come first. Establish value before a purchase. Blockchain is not a commodity that can provide value out of the box.
  • The technical stuff matters. You can drive a car without knowing how it works, but you can’t design and build one. Blockchain solutions are still being designed and built.

Impact and Result

  • Understand the specificity of blockchain’s function as a tool.
  • Grasp how blockchain ecosystems currently operate.
  • Be prepared to answer questions about blockchain, whether you’re using it or not.
  • Determine the best course of action based on your organization’s situation.
