10  Bitcoin / Project Development / Research Report - Who had helped to make the blockchain adoption easier? on: November 21, 2019, 05:18:35 PM
Dear Forum Members,

We, Bitcurate team has conducted a research on digital asset market within the time frame of January-June 2019.  "Deep Dive 2019 - What sparked the changes in digital asset market from 2018 to 2019?"

I'm the Digital Lead of Bitcurate.com, gradually sharing the report insights on this forum. Today, I'm sharing the Insight 2 - Ecosystem Building

Taking a step back on the increase in enterprise blockchain, we would like to ask the question - Who had helped to make this adoption easier?

  • Pioneering 5 industries with a consortium in each industry
  • Respectively gathered teams of industry leading companies to form different consortium that are specifically designed to solve its unique industry challenges.
  • Believe that an open-source community working together would accelerate innovation and reduces the cost and risk.

We highlighted IBM as a pioneer and leader in this aspect. Not only had the company worked on providing end-to-end enterprise solutions but it also showed significant initiatives in multiple consortia. Based on our research, we were able to see a positive correlation between the type of consortium (those lead by IBM) to the blockchain industry segmentation in adoption. This shows that having a guiding working group and a shared knowledge base could help accelerate a particular industry blockchain adoption.

Read the summary here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GixKN6X98ga8Xn1qw1HeLiAqjQnvgUi5

More details on other active consortia are in our full report. You can ask to get the full report from this link or can join on our social media and put a message. https://drive.google.com/drive/u/1/folders/1Rw7N9bJn2pmIdM5KMMGXFhnuioN4bws3

11  Bitcoin / Project Development / ResearchReport - What are the industries adopting Blockchain technology? on: November 14, 2019, 06:17:52 AM
Dear Forum Members,

We, Bitcurate team has conducted a research on digital asset market within the time frame of January-June 2019.  "Deep Dive 2019 - What sparked the changes in digital asset market from 2018 to 2019?"

Insight 1 - The Rise of Enterprise Blockchain

2019 sees keen interest from corporations to adopt enterprise blockchain solutions or adopt blockchain technology development into their strategic plan. We were able to detail down 10 industries ranging from financial services to healthcare, each with their plan to leverage the technology and build new innovative solutions.

Taking Jaguar as an example. The company developed a “smart wallet” that enable their users to earn cryptocurrency each time their vehicle reports road conditions data such as traffic congestions or potholes to logistic companies. They would hence be able to use the currency to pay for their tolls or coffee.

Read more on what the other 77 companies are building.
