Why blockchains will rewrite business models and revolutionize industries

Almost every sector — from banking and utilities to entertainment and agriculture — can expect to experience major business model disruption as blockchain technologies take hold, predicts digital guru Don Tapscott. Because blockchain technology originated as the underlying mechanism of the bitcoin digital currency, there is a widespread belief that its potential is greatest in – or even limited to — the financial sector. But, says Don Tapscott, business author and authority on the impact of digital technology on business and society, that is to misunderstand a reality that is already unfolding.

Opinion: 4 blockchain companies that could change everything from accounting to money transfers

Don Tapscott and his son Alex Tapscott have published an article on MarketWatch. The article begins: The first generation of the digital revolution brought us the Internet of information. The second generation — powered by blockchain technology — is bringing us the Internet of value: a new platform to reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better. Blockchain is a vast, global distributed ledger or database running on millions of devices and open to anyone, where not just information but anything of value — money, but also titles, deeds, identities, even votes — can be moved, stored and managed securely and privately. Trust is established through mass collaboration and clever code rather than by powerful intermediaries like governments and banks. Read the article on...

Commentary: Five myths about the Blockchain revolution

Don and Alex Tapscott have published an article on Reuters about a few blockchain myths. They write: Blockchain technology is the most important invention in computing in a generation because, for the first time in human history, we have at our disposal a truly native digital medium for peer-to-peer value exchange.

Rather than relying on a bank, government or other intermediary to create trust, the blockchain ensures it through mass collaboration and clever code. Trust is built into the system, which is why we call blockchain the Trust Protocol. Read the article on Reuters Photo: Reuters/Benoit...

The Impact of the Blockchain Goes Beyond Financial Services

The technology most likely to change the next decade of business is not the social web, big data, the cloud, robotics, or even artificial intelligence. It’s the blockchain, the technology behind digital currencies like Bitcoin. Blockchain technology is complex, but the idea is simple. At its most basic, blockchain is a vast, global distributed ledger or database running on millions of devices and open to anyone, where not just information but anything of value – money, titles, deeds, music, art, scientific discoveries, intellectual property, and even votes – can be moved and stored securely and privately. On the blockchain, trust is established, not by powerful intermediaries like banks, governments and technology companies, but through mass collaboration and clever code. Blockchains ensure integrity and trust between strangers. They make it difficult to cheat. Read the full article by Don and Alex Tapscott on...
