"Blockchain !  Do you have, REAL examples in the business environment ?"

This is probably the most popular question I have had in my conversations about Blockchain these last weeks.

If 2017 sounds to have been the year when the world (except the most early technological birds) opened up to blockchain, 2018 sounds to be the year to question whether it is becoming real or not.

By real, people mean “do some actors use it in som...

There is still a huge buzz around Blockchain and its application in the business field. Specifically, a lot is written about Blockchain and Supplychain, which is spotted as one of the most evident field of application.

Some companies are speeding up, like Maersk who made a step forward by creating a Joint Venture with IBM to pursue the experimentation run about managing containers’ documentation along the transportation journey...

Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, Blockchain, you must have crossed these words over the past few months or weeks. The mainstream media get a lot interest on these subjects, so difficult to escape. But Tokens, have you heard about it? Kodak, that is one of the example of a company that lost its business due to technological major transformation, has just launched its token, the KodakCoin and is probably re-inventing its future, interes...

Blockchain is raising great expectations to improve traceability. As a matter of fact, although supplychain processes and traceability have improved considerably over the last 10/15 years there are still some issues about food complying to norm, origin of raw material, labour conditions, and also time consumed conciliating datas coming from different systems. So what’s the news ? Why Blockchain can add value in this process ?

When we are talked about Blockchain and the advantages that it can bring to the business, such as the improvement of traceability, the exchange of data between different parties, the automation of processes or the control of intellectual property, among others, our reaction can be : "Oh! we already have it " or "Yes, we already do this ".

Maybe this is the case. However, it is most likely not so, for many reasons.

Not so, becaus...

In this blog, we convey an optimistic point of view regarding Blockchain and its future applications. We belong to this group of people that puts a lot of hope in the added value it will bring to many different type of operations.  Nevertheless, it is important to hear the voice of more sceptical people, who see quite a lot of roadblocks for the development of the Blockchain.

The first reason for scepticism regarding this new t...

The number of connected objects in the world is following a really high speed of growth. According to Gartner, in 2017, 8,4 billions of objects are already connected (both B2C and B2B), and the estimation for 2020 is about 20 billions, meaning 2,5 times more ! This is probably conservative, as some other companies estimate this number between 30 billions and 80 billions.

Therefore, the transfer of datas  between those connected...

There are many experiments, and development projects on-going right now, especially in the banking and the insurance industries.

In an article from the Harvard Business Review, Alex and Don Tapscott (1), describes a global financial system that “is rife with problems, adding cost through fees and delays, creating friction through redundant and onerous paperwork, and opening up opportunities for fraud and crime”.

They explain lat...
