Analyst(s): Consult the Board Research Team


This summary contains input from twenty-seven members their experiences evaluating and using the blockchain since we last asked about this topic two years ago. This summary will help members understand trends in their peers' usage of blockchain technology in areas such as short-term and long-term use cases, pilots and proofs-of-concept underway, partners and consortia, anticipated benefits from putting blockchain projects into production, and challenges faced in implementing blockchain technology. Particular emphasis is paid to how these trends break down by industry and how these trends compare to members' results from the first time we asked about blockchain technology in 2017.
