Blockchain Research Institute

Realizing the New Promise of the Digital Economy

FOR INDUSTRY TRANSFORMATION, COMPETITIVENESS, MANAGEMENT AND PUBLIC VALUE

The technology that will enable, secure and formalize the digital relationships shaping the future of enterprise, government and the global economy has arrived — Blockchain. 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, distributed platform that can help us create the digital relationships that will reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better.

Blockchain RevolutionIn the first best-selling book about the blockchain revolution, Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott argued that blockchain technology will transform financial services, the deep architecture of the corporation, animate the Internet of Things, recast the role of government, revamp our content industries, and solve important problems like the security of organizations and the privacy of individuals. New blockchain-based business models will transform most industries, and big disruptors may themselves become disrupted.

It’s now time to take the next step and conduct deep research into killer applications — identifying the most important opportunities for blockchain in business and government and drawing the roadmap for how to get there. The Blockchain Research Institute is a Toronto-based think-tank that helps organizations to realize the new promise of the digital economy by researching the strategic implications of blockchain technology and producing practical insights that will guide its members in achieving success.

The Institute’s global team of experts is dedicated to exploring, understanding, documenting and informing leaders about blockchain strategies, market opportunities, and implementation challenges. There are over 70 research projects underway in the areas of financial services, manufacturing, retail, energy and resources, technology/media, healthcare and government; as well as how this nascent technology changes the way companies are managed.

Project deliverables include an in-depth research report, an introductory video, and a summary infographic. To complement the research, the Institute offers a suite of services to members, such as a private website for the display of deliverables, monthly webinars, two all-member summits, and other proprietary activities. The Institute’s research findings, conclusions and recommendations will be released after a period of time under a creative commons license.
